Yesterday night I had a conversation with a friend about what to do when someone stands you up. And while this was concerning a date, I think the advice we decided on could apply to any area of your life where people aren't showing up. When someone is no longer appreciative of your time, effort, and energy, it may be the universe's way of saying, "This person cannot go to the next level with you."
Oftentimes, I'll notice myself falling into cyclical patterns where I exhaust my energy on a person or group of people thats aren't willing to meet me halfway, and I end up having nothing left to give to myself--and in those situations, I'm NOT GROWING.
It then becomes up to us to identify where these patterns are occurring in our lives, and allow them to no longer affect us.
Now I'm not saying to cut off everyone in your life that isn't going above and beyond to help you grow. Rather, assess the relationships and identify where they are draining you. Allow yourself to put in less energy if you notice your efforts are not being matched. Always wish people well, communicate often, and hope for the best, but do not allow the negativity that might be festering to affect your growth. 🌻
P.S. What's one thing you're going to do for yourself this week?
