Everything around you is energy. Every tree, every bug, every leaf, every car, every bench, every little thing that is a part of your surroundings is made of energy. Even you. This leads us to the next conclusion.
If you are pure energy, then so are your actions. So are your deeds. So are your thoughts and so are your wishes. So, naturally, the more you let people inside your life, the more you share a part of you with the world, the more energy you offer to these people. But here’s the problem.
Not everyone in your life is there to build you up. Not everyone is willing to see you rise. Some of the people you know would do everything to break you down and see you fall. They would risk their lives to destroy yours without even hesitating. They would corrupt your mind and poison you until you are no longer able to think straight.
Have you ever felt drained and exhausted after spending time with some of the people you know? Some of the people you call friends? Have you ever felt the need to cancel a date with them and felt instantly relieved upon doing that?
Well, you are not alone, my friend. You are not the only one feeling that way. You are not the only one being stuck in friendships that are bad for you. We’ve all been there. We’ve all felt what it is like to be personally victimized by toxic individuals and energy-sucking vampires. These people live to see you down. They feed off your weakness. They suck the life out of you until you are no longer yourself. And very slowly, they morph into people that you no longer recognize.
Here’s the truth. You won’t find happiness anywhere near them. If you keep on letting them get away with what they do, you’ll end up getting played. If you let them stay in your life, they will suck you dry. They will take everything away from you. If you keep on giving them second chances, they will destroy you and everything you hold dear. If you hold onto them blindly and out of fear that you will never again come across another person like them, you will condemn yourself to a life of misery and self-hate.
Who wants that life?
If you want to find happiness, my love, then let go of everything and everyone that is holding you back. Release yourself from the cages that all the toxic people in your life has put you in and fly away. Spread your wings and go. Go far away from them. Fly as far as the wings carry you. But don’t look back. Don’t regret leaving a life that never made you happy. Don’t regret cutting off the people who only took advantage of you.
If you want to be happy, cut off all the toxicity that is preventing you from living the life of your dreams and just go for it. Go after your dreams. Go after what makes your soul smile. Do the things that fill your heart with joy. Surround yourself with all things nice.
For you get only one life… One limited period of time. So, why not make the most of it?
