Focus on people who care and forget the haters
I had a friend call me yesterday telling me about so many new exciting things in her life but also to tell me about a friend who she’s been consistently having trouble with. This isn’t the first time I’ve heard stories like this. I’ve had so many friends tell me about people in their lives that treat them really poorly or just straight up have people just not like them. Honestly I think at some point it happens to everyone. The problem is when you dwell on it and let it bother you on a regular basis. I think true happiness comes from the relationships that we form with other people.
It gets complicated when that person is a quote on quote “friend“, but I’m here to tell you that if a friend is ditching you, ghosting you, mad at your success or causing you all sorts of stress or drama it isn’t worth it to invest your energy into that relationship or person.
Even I’ve had this problem, I tend to be a people pleaser and really want to be friends with everyone so I feel personally hurt when people don’t put that same energy into things, or they abuse the friendship that we have. It’s pretty rough.
I‘m not saying to completely cut off a best friend who has been with you through thick and thin and is going through a hard time, or maybe you fought. This person probably doesn’t want to lose you.
I‘m talking about investing less energy into
people who could care less if you existed.
I‘ve personally found that meaningful relationships are the ones that bring you the most joy.
Forget the haters and live your best most extra life.
see you tomorrow!
