This year I feel liberated in many ways.
Some of my friendships have changed and it feels as though for the time in ages, maybe ever I have removed a blindfold and can see clearly.
All of a sudden I can see through the bullshit, I can see people for who they really are and not what I hoped they would be.
I am the type of person who always tries to see the good in others, who tries to find at least one positive in a bad situation, and I hope this never changes.
I was the person who gave second, third, thirteenth chances, rather than understanding that situations and people change I held on to the memory of when things were amazing.
Things change, people change and while that thought used to make me incredibly sad I now realize it is what it is.
It is neither good, nor bad, it just is.
I gave up a few friendships this year, for various reasons I won’t get in to- I gave them up knowing it was the right thing to do, then instantly felt sad, instantly doubting myself, instantly wondering what I did wrong.
Some of these people I really thought I would miss, but you know what, I don’t.
These people were wrong for me, were draining, were toxic and how can any of that be right?
I refuse to get mad over certain things, I refuse to think of these people with hurt, anger or regret.
These people came into my life for a reason, maybe to help me reach this point.
Now I feel free, I feel light, I feel happy.
I now spend my time with those who do not judge, do not get jealous, do not put me down, do not want me for something other than my friendship.
I spend my time with people who I admire, who I respect, who make me feel good, people who I would do anything to make them feel good in return.
I struggle to find the time to call or catch up with all of these wonderful people that it astounds me I would try to fit in the ” others” as well.
It makes sense that if you surround yourself with negative people, you will feel negative as a result.
If you surround yourself with positive, supportive people – people who want nothing in return, people who are authentic in their words and actions that you will feel positive uplifted and alive.
Liberate yourself today – it’s incredible!
