Consider the people who are in your life today. Who supports and nurtures your heart and soul? Who leaves you feeling depleted and despondent, with less energy to follow your dreams?
Give yourself permission to gravitate towards those people who uplift and support your journey through life!
To do this, you must have an awareness of your inner state. If you do not know yourself you will not know when other people are depleting your energy. You will not be able to protect yourself in the world. So pay attention to your inner state. Notice how you feel when you are with different people.
It is not that you must make a determined effort to avoid negative people. It is not possible, anyway. If you focus on getting negative people out of your life, you are concentrating your vital energy upon negativity! This brings more not less negativity into your life!
Focus on the people in your life who are kind and pleasant to be with. More importantly, focus on having a happy relationship with yourself. Your inner reaction to outer circumstances determines your experience of life. The inner that determines the outer.
And so the most effective way to have honest relationships with other people is to have an honest relationship with yourself. As your own state is uplifted, you naturally attract happier relationships - because like really does attract like!
You do not have to worry about the results of your efforts. The outcome belongs to the future and is not your concern. Simply commit to becoming more aware of your inner state and your reactions to life around you. Sincere intention and commitment are lights that guide you along the path to a happier, friendlier life.
