Continuing with the “clean it up” theme, it is time to look at your relationships – namely friendships. Hopefully by now, you have cleaned up your possessions and did some internal releasing of negative beliefs. If you want your life to keep moving in a positive direction, you will also need to evaluate who you are hanging out with.
Good friendships have a give-and-take balance.
Are you the go-to person for everything? Nothing wrong with that, if it pleases you, and you aren’t doing all the work. Do you have a friend who calls you all the time to complain about whatever, but isn’t there when you need to chat? You might want to reconsider answering the phone.
What about the friend who always wants to go to lunch, but you are stuck with the tab? Or they come to your house for dinner and never bring anything. Better to eat alone then be someone else’s pantry.
Maybe it’s the fun, but crazy friend who always calls you to go clubbing. Yet, their drunken antics cause you no end of embarrassment and may have almost gotten you arrested.
How about the one who always delivers back-handed compliments? “That’s a great color on you, but pants are so much more slimming than that pencil skirt.” And then you see her the next day in the skirt you didn’t buy.
Why do you need these toxic people in your life? You, the kind-hearted person who’s always there with a ready ear or hot bowl of soup. Ditch the b*tch and open your heart to the wonderful, fun, nice and reciprocal people who are out there.
You deserve someone who supports you. You deserve someone who cares about you. You deserve friends who are like you.
Because, you are not unfriendly.
