Are you surrounding yourself with positive or negative people?
I used to have friends who loved to talk about all that was wrong in their life. They were constantly complaining and the more I was around them, the heavier my heart weighed and the more likely I was to complain about my own life.
It wasn’t until I put some distance between these so-called friends and myself that I realized what was going on. Their negativity held me down and didn’t allow me to grow.
Negative people can weigh you down and even undermine your efforts to be physically, mentally and emotionally healthy.
I love this quote because it illustrates the repercussions of negativity. It’s crucial for us to choose our inner circle of friends who are supportive, positive and lift us up. In order to be healthy in all facets of our life, we must be mindful of the company we keep.
Take a look at your circle of influence. Do they support you and reflect gratitude, love and positivism? If not, maybe it’s time to make a change.
