Did you know that if you surround yourself with people who lift you up, love, support and care about you, life is happier and balanced? I believe one of the most critical ingredients to happiness comes from the people who surround you every day.
Envision you’re looking down from the cosmos to our planet earth and imagine people as colours. All the different colours would mix in beautiful cohesion.
Harmony would exist in these people getting along and conversing. Their lights and colours would shine brightly.
The positive people in our lives are the ingredients that make an excellent addition to our daily living. Positive people add to the light in our lives, and we shine with such vibrant colour we are hard to resist.
We choose who we hang out with, and in most cases, these people are the people that lift us up.
Surround yourself with people who support you 🙂
Often you have a choice who you spend time with, and in most cases, you would choose people who support you. Why would you subject yourselves to less? Logically, it makes more sense to spend time with a supportive person, but sometimes it is out of your hands.
Although it seems unrealistic to think this possible, you can become stuck in a situation that is difficult to leave. Nevertheless, it is important to note it is how we deal with the situation that shows who we are. Keep a hold on who you are, and this will help you rise above your situation. Don’t lose yourself in an unsupported relationship keep a level head and change will come.
If you are in a situation right now, know that staying true to yourself will help you with a solution.
In a sense, this is a measure of your adversity and strength, giving you the courage to do things you never thought possible. A test to help you understand who you are and how you cope and to not be drawn into the negative situation.
Be Aware of how your moods affect others
Just like some people can be not so right for you, it also goes the other way round. Your feelings can affect the people around you. Be conscious of how you may be harming other people with your demeanour. Are you the “Debbie Downer” in the group? Do you spend your time gossiping about others? Is your presence unhappiness and depression?
We all feel down sometimes, but if you are feeling that way all the time may be, it is time to book an appointment with your doctor or get some counselling.
Don’t hang with the pessimist
Pessimists believe the world is out to get them and even if you are a confident person that always tries to see the bright side in things you can get dragged down to the negativity even when you don’t think you ever could.
People like this are a bummer and no fun to be around. You will eventually become unhappy and feel lost in everything you thought you knew about the world.
Take a break and find yourself
If you feel that an individual that you love is not doing you any good or maybe even toxic take a break from them for a while. A toxic person can take you away from all your dreams and goals, and this will make you cynical and sad. A situation like this can have you making bad decisions too!
Do this for yourself and make plans to go away for a while just until you feel this person is in a better spot in their life. You sure will be! If there is a person in your life seriously bringing you down and is showing no signs of change, then maybe it is time to say goodbye.
These are the people who will have the most influence on what you are doing now and what you want to achieve. Do they support you in what you want to do in life? Do they give you inspiration? If you have good people who are there when you need them your life is happier.
If you are unhappy, take a look at the people in your life. Do they contribute to your life with positivity? Surround yourself with positive people, and you will be so much happier you did.
