Today’s quote of the day is all about getting to live the life you love. There are many different things you can do to get a state of love or above (joy, peace, enlightenment) and attract a life that you love to you. But, one way that many people don’t focus on is surrounding yourself with people who help you stay in a state of love or above.
I know firsthand how hard it is to live in a state of love when you are surrounded by negative people. Their energy, words, behaviors, and beliefs, will drag you down into bad vibe city!
I have had negative family members, coworkers, and neighbors who have affected my ability to come from a place of love. They ultimately affected my confidence to try to live a life that I loved.
Sometimes The People Closest To You Can Keep You Stuck In Negative Vibes
I had a best friend who was making me miserable, but I didn’t know it. We spent every second together – at work, after work, at parties, and at family functions. We were inseparable.
At first, we were exactly alike, but over the years, I started to think differently and wanted different things while she stayed the same.
I didn’t even realize her energy was dragging me down until I stopped being friends with her. When we broke up our friendship, I was able to be myself and interact with life without her influence, and it turned out I was a pretty positive and confident person compared to who I was when I was around her.
Sometimes Relationships Need To End So You Can Live The Life You Love
That’s why I’m a huge advocate of ending friendships that are not serving you anymore, or, at least, putting distance between you.
But, distance is easier said than done when you’ve always spent a lot of time with that person. You can’t just see them once a month all of a sudden. It doesn’t go over well!
You Are Who You Surround Yourself With
Negative people make you feel bad. It doesn’t matter how positive you are, their energy will get to you and drag you down.
It’s hard to focus on good things when you are feeling bad. This will forever be true and there are a few very simple reasons why.
- smile and cry at the same time.
- appreciate and complain at the same time.
- love and hate at the same time.
- be happy and sad at the same time.
- take chances and live in fear at the same time.
If you want to live the life you love, you need to do things like smile, appreciate, and love. You need to be in a higher state of being where you can see opportunities and take advantage of them. And you need to be in a state of being where you feel worthy or capable of doing things that help you get the life you love. So, surround yourself with people who encourage all those things!
