Does the title of this post make you cringe? This post is meant to encourage you to reflect and review the people who are in your life. I’ve said it many times before: those who surround you will influence every part of who you are and who you will become. Relationships are dynamic; they infuse the quality of our life. It’s also mutual. What are you giving to others? Are you the person bringing drama, gossip, pessimism into your relationships? If so, think about what will that foster in your relationship. If your friendships are centered around gossip and talking poorly about others, what does that mean for the wellbeing of your relationship? Please don’t be surprised when that relationship goes south.
I want to challenge you to look at your relationship and in turn what you bring to your relationship. How can your relationships be healthier? Is there someone that you need to let go of or rearrange your boundaries around? What kind of friend are you? What changes do you need to make to be a healthier person?
