Every person you allow into your life is influencing you. The people with whom you are spending your time are the ones you give your energy to. And together with your energy, you give them also the power to either better your life or hurt you.
Therefore, if you want to live a peaceful and happy life, then you should stop giving your time and energy to people who don’t deserve you. People who are toxic to you and your wellbeing. Stop entertaining those who don’t respect you and don’t give you anything in return.
It is really simple: if someone doesn’t make you a better person and inspires you to grow, then they are bringing you down and holding you back.
True happiness is not having many people around you. True happiness is having the right people and forming deep bonds and real connections with them. Stop giving your time to superficial things. You deserve more.
Sadly, sometimes the people we need to cut off are our closest friends or even family members. It is hard to distance yourself when you are stuck in this kind of situation, but it is essential because these people will do anything to control you. However, once the masks are off and you see their true colors, you must cut the cords with them to become the person you need to be.
Of course, you will bad at first for cutting them off, but after some time you will understand that it was for the best. Because the truth is, you can’t change people. And when someone is making you feel bad, you must protect yourself.
When someone is holding you back, talking shit about you behind your back, and constantly bringing you down, then don’t feel guilty for distancing yourself from them or even ghosting them without an explanation. You owe to yourself that much. No one has the right to abuse you and hurt you.
This is your life and you should make the most of it. Stop wasting your time on people who don’t deserve you.
