Friends come and go, you never know what they do to you, but they do change you…
Have you ever held on to something or someone but weren’t ready to let go and move on? Well, you’re not alone.
As we emerge from the confines of Winter and welcome Spring watching the garden to blossom and grow, we first need to pull out the weeds before nurturing the seeds to flourish. This also applies to our lives: get rid of things we no longer need or have outgrown, and even let go of some people that no longer stand by us so we can nurture what matters most.
During tough times, you’ll see the true colors of people: those who are supportive and those who are not. If they aren’t there when you need them, be willing to let them go.
Surround yourself with those who believe in you, encourage you, and are willing to support you during good and even challenging times.
You may not be able to control everything people do or how they act toward you, but you can decide not to let their actions and opinions invade your heart and mind. Above all, you can choose who you want to walk beside you into tomorrow and who to leave behind today.
Life is way too wonderful and short to waste time with people who don’t treat you with the respect you deserve. Surround yourself with those who inspire you to smile, friends who help you up when you’re down, and who are honest and genuinely show you they care. They are the ones worth keeping and continue to nurture; everyone else is just passing through, no matter how long they were with you in the past.
Sometimes, even those you consider close confidants may crush your potential, or show little to no emotional support. Never let someone’s opinion or behavior toward you diminish your spirit. And never sacrifice yourself or what you aspire to be only because someone else sees things differently.
Always choose to be true to who you are. There’s no better freedom than being exactly uniquely you. Give yourself that gift, and surround yourself with those who appreciate you, with people who help strengthen you, and those who see your greatness, even when you don’t see it in yourself…yet. That’s knowing your worth.
You will only be as great as the people you surround yourself with.
Make kindness a habit.
