I know, I know, you have heard that saying a million and one times… but it is soo true!! I have first hand experienced the positive and the negative of this mantra. I notice when I am around negative, cranky, or tired people I too will start to act in this manner- and that is not okay. But, on the other hand when I am surrounded by people who are positive, uplifting, and inspiring I have better energy, thoughts, and emotions. It is too easy to get caught up with other people and what they think that you forget about who you are and your own individual thoughts. I think that a main reason for this is because people are naturally scared of rejection and want to be liked by their peers. Now-a-days people are way too timid to stand out and be unique that we are all becoming so similar there is a loss of individuality. Knowing this makes me so sad because that means people aren’t expressing who they are and who they want to be.
So, with that said find your tribe and stick with them. I know it will be a challenging task but let people go who you know are bringing you down and not letting you live your life. Trust me, this will only better yourself and positively effect your future! Find people that you actually want to be around and stick with them forever! Not only that, but make sure you are setting out “good vibes” to them as well, this way it will be a two way street and you are uplifting them in return.
There will always be negative and pessimistic people in this world, but I encourage you to just let them pass along. Don’t over think it when a person makes an unreasonable comment to you, or get carried away with negativity. It is your life and make it a positive one! Life is a million times more enjoyable when you chose to live a happy life and be happy.
Go off into the new year with a fresh new mindset of positivity and optimism! Make this your year and find your “tribe”. Surround yourself with the best people you can find and cherish them forever! If you don’t think you can do it, I believe in you and I know you can! I wish you all only the best for the new year and I hope you have a great day!!
