As you know, I have been doing a lot of self-care and self healing for the past two years but really have focused on emotional and mental well-being the last year.
What have I learned about myself? That I love people too hard, that I care a lot about other people and their happiness. For all those reasons, sometimes I can come as cold and hard. I guess that’s just me knowing the potential and seeing the good in people before they see it in themselves, and getting disappointed when they quit on themselves.
You probably remember this from a few post back but the main take away is this: “It is not your job to show others the lessons they need to learn.”
I’m not perfect and I don’t claim to be or expect the people around me to be perfect. I do expect them to always be a work in progress, always learning, to keep an open mind and don’t accept shitty circumstances.
I also learned that once you start to self-heal that you need to protect your energy. I have worked so hard on overcoming childhood trauma, anxiety attacks and depression that I’m very limited with the people that I let in my life.
Don’t be ashamed to distance yourself from the people that bring out the bad in you, and letting them know right know you are working on yourself. Look at your immediate circle, look at your social media “friends” or accounts you follow. Are they bringing you good energy?Are they good people?
The people that love you will understand you and if they don’t get a new circle.
