Sooner or later, we all must die, and what we let happen in our lifetime is significant, because toxic people are sound suppressors. The point is simple: People who have nothing to do with our lifestyle are silently killing the fruit of our hard labor. We only have one life, and we should not add any other fractions of someone else’s life.
At some point, while we’re on our way to success, we meet someone we either wish to help or don’t have to assist, and then, all we get to deal with is problem after problem. That person keeps bringing us more and more riddles. This is when we have to choose to either stay in that relationship or find people who are strong and motivated like us. Whether we are close to that person or not, we must decide to move forward, because if we don’t, we’ll be moving backward. How many times have you heard that, in our future, we must move backward? This is astounding because only the ones who find themselves in such a situation at an early stage and never took care of it are prevented from moving forward.
One year ago, I had to let go a fascinating and smart individual whom I believed would have become bright, but somehow she chose to slip and bring more negative energy around me that I didn’t need to deal with. She had no confidence in her own skills and talents. Although I took the time to mentor her as a friend, I had to deal with the same issues for three years. I heard the same story over and over. I lay down various options before her to open her eyes, but her negative energy was unchangeable. When I finally got fed up, I had to explain to her that it was time to part ways and that I was not there to listen to the same negativeness.
Now, some people might think that there was no friendship there, or that people who decide to let go some of their friends are not true friends. The point is that, when reality hits a few years later, after consuming all those negative energies, such as a lack of confidence, lack of hope, lack of motivation, lack of self-esteem, and so on, we’ll realize that we have messed up when we take a look back after noticing that our dreams have been on hold for years or we’ve lost someone/something valuable. How many of you reading this have found yourselves in that position?
