How much clutter do you have in your life?
I’m not just talking about possessions.
What about your friends? How many of them suck the energy from you? Friends can either give you energy or take energy away from you. I think it’s important to evaluate your friendships. Sometimes your best friends are energy takers – but if you’re aware of that and are ready to accept that, then the friendship can work. If you’re not, well maybe it’s not a good idea to still be friends with that person.
Have you ever heard someone say to you “I’m being mean to you because I care about you?”
Well I think that’s bullshit. If someone cares about you, they should be supportive of you and encouraging of what you do. Even if it’s in their character to be critical, if they truly care about you (and that admiration is a positive thing) then they will be positive and supportive.
If you are surrounded by too many critical and negative people then your life will feel very critical and negative and it will be tiring. You might even start being more critical of your friends.
If you’ve ever heard of the book/movie/etc called “The Secret” (which ps it’s not) then you’ll know that your energy will attract similar energy. If you’re super positive then you’ll attract positive people and vice versa. However, it’s entirely possible to be super positive yet attract negative people. But that’s the great thing about life – you have a choice as to who you surround yourself with and who you choose to be in your life.
So choose wisely. Because it’s much better having positive supportive people around you.
