Your internal serenity should always be a top priority and this requires you to protect yourself–protect your energy.
Have you ever noticed how you can sometimes feel drained after being around certain people or being certain places? That means someone’s energy isn’t aligning with yours and their overall aura just isn’t for you. When this happens you need to hone into who exactly is bringing the bad energy onto you and distance yourself from them and fast!
I deliberately avoid certain people in order to protect my mental, emotional, and spiritual health. You’d be surprised how many times we put our own health to the side in order to be up under somebody that is downright no good for us whether it is through the exploration of platonic friendships or romantic relationships.
An important life lesson that everyone has to learn the hard way is that not everyone is for you! You can’t be everyone’s friend, and everyone can’t be yours. It is your personal obligation to yourself to be selective about who you allow into your space.
I’m in no way saying you should be loner and be friendless but I am saying that you have to be careful about who you surround yourself with. When you feel your energy draining in new surroundings and around certain people you have to listen to your body. When your homeostasis is threatened so is your peace of mind and no one is more important than you.
If you don’t put yourself first then who will?
I always think back to when I was pregnant when I think about the premise of protecting your energy. When I was pregnant, I didn’t f*ck with a lot of people, because I didn’t want people’s bad vibes rubbing off on my baby i.e. them affecting my mood which would in turn affect my baby. They weren’t about to have my baby out here looking crazy because the baby feeds off of the mothers emotions and overall being. So I protected myself by just not allowing myself to be bothered with any nonsense, and when I tell ya’ll I have the best child, I’m not just tooting my own horn.
Unfortunately, not everyone is going to be happy for you. A person’s energy can tell you more about them than their own words. Energy is real and you must protect yours.
So I challenge you to take a look at how you feel around certain people in your life and if you feel even the slightest mismatch of energy at any point of time you just might have to make your inner circle that much smaller.
