Even though you have the strength to break through the walls of limitation, you don’t have to use a wrecking ball. Sometimes letting go and moving on from others requires compassion and love. Don’t yell at your friend(s) who are always negative and putting limitations on you. Use love and compassion to explain to them you’re working hard to change your life. And sometimes that means releasing things…and people…who aren’t good for you.
Negative thinking breeds more negative thinking. If you’re getting to the point where the negativity of others are bringing you down and zapping your energy, then it maybe time to look at your choices. You can’t learn their lessons for them. You can’t change them when they are dug into the misconceptions and hate. But you can make the choice to walk away and allow them to live their life, while you grow and move beyond those limiting actions.
Remember you have free will and choice. You decide who you want to be with and hang around. You can use compassion and let them know their constant hate is wearing thin. Let them know you are moving on. Ask them if they would like to change their life for the better and learn to be positive? If they say no and put you down. You have your answer. Give them a hug and walk away. Let them know it was nice while it lasted, but there’s no room in your life for their brand of hate and anger.
It’s your choice. It’s your life. Take control of it. When you close a door of negativity a new door will open and the void will be filled with better options and uplifting friends.
