Being selective with the people we let into our life it’s the first gift you can give to yourself. People making you feel small or needy will never evolve, and for that reason they will never allow you to grow. We are more mindful about the influences that children are exposed to than we are about our own circle of influence, but in reality we are just as vulnerable. Once we trust someone, we unfortunately can easily allow them to override our views.
We are all looking for options to improve our life, to do better, to be better. But we often seek for someone to show us the way or walk a path, not realising that each path is different. We can follow someone and have a different experience of life. A poorer experience of life. Or we can dare to walk ahead, carve our way and take ownership of our journey.
