Getting rid of a toxic person from your life often means deleting their pictures from your computer as well. But what if you’re in the same pictures? Looking pretty? Danielle from the US found herself in this exact situation. Her solution, however, was as simple as it was brilliant. Replace someone you want to forget with something you can’t get enough of.

“So I finally got away from what has turned out to be a truly evil and terrible person”

“We actually dated for a bit,” Danielle told Bored Panda. “To be honest, I’m not really sure why a steak, haha. I love food and a good steak with a nice char on it is probably my favorite thing.”

“While I was deleting a ton of photos, I wondered if there was anything I could do to keep the halfway decent pictures of myself”

Talking about her ex, Danielle painted a pretty vivid picture with just a few words. “Compulsive liar in every sense. Controlling, violent, drugs, you name it, that was him. Oh, and he almost beat a girl to death. So yeah, I’m glad I got out as lucky as I did. Completely broke but very lucky.”

“So I decided to just replace him with something that I truly and deeply love and trust. Goddamn steak”

But now he’s gone, and Danielle found something better to take his place. “It’s hard to be in a bad mood with steak,” she said. “I’m not a big celebrity worshiper so I wanted to do something that I really truly loved. So steak it was.”

“Now I enjoy these pictures again”

It took Danielle about 10-15 minutes to redo her pictures. “My photoshop skills are not the greatest obviously,” she said. “Thank god for the apps!”

“If you’re in a bad situation, play it safe, use your head, and document! Then you can do the things you love in life. Like cuddle up with a good steak”

“If you’re unhappy about something in your life, change it!” Danielle added. “Never let anyone feel guilty about making yourself happy!”
