Surround Yourself with People You Want to Be Like

We all hang out with people in one-sided relationships through social media. Following people on different channels throughout their journey in life impacts the way we grow, the values we admire and who we will become in 5, 10 years.

We get influenced by the people we give our time to and that happens on different levels: standards of fitness and beauty, the attitude towards life and towards other people and generally if we see ourselves as beautiful or not.

All this comes hand in hand with what we consume and we pay for in time and money. A choice that we think we are making is being dictated by earlier decisions. So who do you follow? Who do you let in and how much trust do you give them? What’s your criteria to make sure that the people you give yourself to add value to your life?

To the Spring in Our Steps.

Come back.

There are days when my best self is a distant memory. When hopping and smiling just doesn’t work. I can’t be the only one. We see people trapped in a constant crabby state, people that become that emotion that dominates their lives – grumpy, bored, not interested, short-tempered.

There is always fear inside me that those people who look like sculptures of negativity reached this level of dissatisfaction by putting their guard down: frowning instead of smiling, dragging their legs instead of joyfully skipping, snapping instead of being kind.

It’s easy for a ‘one off’ to turn into a permanent state of mind, particularly since the people around you have already let themselves down. But we must persist and bring the spring in our steps back.

“Every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end.”

Seneca
