We’re barely into the year and there are already a laundry list of people who have worked your very last nerve. Don’t forget that the more you do, the more you succeed, the more resistance you may receive. If you’re anything like me then there are times when you’re just ready to pull the plug on people. Here are 3 things to consider when you get that feeling:
Examine what value someone adds to your life. I have an acquaintance who really has already irritated my soul and quite honestly only needs, needs and needs from me. I’m ok with the roles different people play in my life but I promise I’m not here for non-existent roles. Luckily, my acquaintance holds the role of reminding me about self-care.
Don’t take it personal. Sometimes we blame ourselves for how others treat us. Just know that it’s not you. Whatever you do, don’t take it personal. Don’t blame yourself just know that everyone is not equipped to be what you need them to be. Try keeping them in that space. It’s not you, it’s them.
Don’t cut the rope. I will admit that I’ve had absolutely no problem with cutting people off. I could do it and never look back. I’ve had to learn over the years that seasons exist for different reasons and sometimes they repeat themselves. Never cut people out of your life, just place them in the season they belong in. Appreciate everyone for any thing big or small that they may add to your life.
Don't be quick to drop people. View the circumstance carefully and when all else fails remember that your season may repeat.
Until next time,
Peace & Sweet Dreaming,
