At the end of each year, look at the ones you spent the most time with. The ones that made you feel good and and comfortable. Have a moment and appreciate them, note them as a piece of your identify.
Then look at the ones that served you no memorable purpose. The ones that you almost forgot were there. The ones that have done nothing notable to contribute to your life. The ones that at first maybe seemed liked a good idea, but now make you wonder if you’ve wasted your monetary or qualifiable resources on them. If whatever expendable form of exchange came from your end, maybe you should have held on to. These are the ones that need not come with you into the new year. Remove the excess that does nothing other than deplete you of some free-able time, energy, or closet space.
