In the end of last year, I realize I needed to reassess the people I had in my life. Throughout the years, I’ve managed to distant myself from people who, I felt, were toxic in my life. So far, that has done me good. It has made my life redirect in a more, positive direction, and has taught me to take charge of myself for the things I really needed in my life.
This has taught me to really take the time to figure out what I wanted for myself; what I wanted for my life; what I wanted for my kids; what I wanted out of being a parent; what I wanted out of being a wife. This has brought some peace, and some negative outcomes, but all-in-all, a good thing.
This is my advice to you:
“In this life, we are bound to cross paths with others. Others who become family, good friends, and people who are meant to just be there for the moment that they are required to make, break, or change something in your life. What you do with that moment is up to you. But there comes a point, in all relationships that we have with others, where we have to move on. This is just the way life goes. We have to move on, because we have to grow. We have to move on, because we need them to grow. You have to focus on who you are, what your purpose is in this lifetime, what you are meant to be for yourself and then, others. It is not to be selfish, but to give your life meaning, and lessons. So give your time to those who need it, take it away from those who’s done with it, and keep building ON YOU, and YOUR DREAMS!”
It gets hard at times to stop. To stop what you’re so caught up with and find the patience, to remember why you’re doing any of it, why it’s worth it, why it matters, why for any of it. But, if you find even the tiniest bit of reason to be positive, it surely does change things, even if it’s just a little.
