We cannot choose our co-workers or our family. But we can choose who we hang out with.
Make sure you have one or two people in your life that you can call on for wise counsel. Have someone you can laugh with. Have someone who mirrors your energy and your choices. Interact with lots of different types of people, but hold these friends or relatives close. You don't need much more than that.
Do you have someone in your life who seems sweet or happy-go-lucky but you never feel good after you spend time with them? You can't put your finger on why, right?
It's because they only focus on themselves. They have not shown interest in your life or opinions. The other type of person who depletes you is the Negative Nancy. She has a good heart but everything is bad or wrong. She is always complaining. She is very judgmental. Limit your time with this person.
Check yourself to make sure you are lifting up, not dragging down the people you interact with.
Avoid toxic people this weekend. Stay in the company of people who look up.
