You know people I’m sure who constantly look at the world and see only negative outcomes. As much as you attempt to throw a positive spin on something, they will turn it negative. The:
Oh you have to prepare for this.
Things don’t always work out. You can’t always assume they will.
How many times have you been around someone who reflects that type of personality? While it’s true that things don’t ALWAYS work out, is that the way you want to live your life? Do you really want to look at your life like the glass is half empty? There was a time not long ago when I was barraged constantly with that type of personality, but I’ve taken to limiting my exposure because it is not healthy for me to be around.
Since I’ve discovered that there is a healthier, more positive way to live, I’ve found that some of my friends don’t understand my new outlook and they try to influence me to return return to them by constantly throwing out the:
Things don’t always work out and you have to be prepared for the worst.
Why? I say.
My friends haven’t been awakened yet.
My friends haven’t had their spiritual blinders removed.
My friends haven’t seen yet that our thoughts create our reality, that what we see in the world is simply a manifestation of what we think.
I find myself limiting my exposure to those people because I don’t want my energy sapped by negativity. There was a time when I left those people behind that I felt bad for doing so, but now I understand that unless I take care of myself, unless I limit my time with negativity then I won’t be worth spending time with at all.
My time is too valuable to take up spending it with people who don’t share my values, my belief system, my world view. I understand that now. Have you reached a point with someone where you understand intellectually that they are a burden? That they are an anchor weighing you down? Are you still hanging onto them because they were your friend and you don’t want to hurt them?
I can’t and won’t tell you what to do. I can only show you through my own experience how I’ve changed my life. What you do is up to you.
Be Happy! Be Well! Be Positive!
Blessings to you.
