No, I will not entertain or join your Pitiful Party. I decline the invite. You can network with the ‘Negative Nancy’s’ and socialize with the ‘Unhappy Patty’s’ as you choose. I’m sure your gripes of life, and major hating on other people will be a sure fire hit with the other Pitiful Party goers. Go ahead and drink from your bottomless glass of Whine all night. I’ll pass.
I want all the negative, miserable people of the world to convene in one common place and stay there so they can keep each other comfortable with their un-pleasantries and negative comments. I need them to keep the dark clouds that hover over them, away from me. I do not want to get wet by the ugly, torrential showers that continue to pour down on their head’s everyday.
Although I know life is not always a bed of roses and we have bad days. I also know that if I don’t have something nice to say, to not say anything at all. I like to see the good in people, rather than to constantly highlight the bad and speak on the negatives. No one is perfect. In my journey, my main quest is to become a better me. Yes, I backslide from time to time, here and there on occasion (and it’s what makes me…me). However, I am now more conscious of the things that I say, the words that I put out in the universe.
What I do know is this: I am responsible for the energy I bring…Good or bad. I want others around me to do the same, and that is, “be responsible for the energy you bring into this space.” ~ Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor
(This video below gives you a better understanding of the quote).
I’d rather not be in the company of those who like to negate and hate…constantly. It’s draining and un-nerving. Two years ago, I probably wouldn’t be saying this. Thank God for growth…It indeed is a choice. I want positive energy around me! Therefore, I have to bring that same energy wherever I go. If I must distance myself or leave behind people who choose not to grow, I will and I am 100% okay with that, because all “energy suckers” must GO!
Are there any “energy suckers” in your life? Are you willing to let them go?
Peace & Blessings,
One thought on “Energy Suckers Go Away!”
Oh yes some people confuse being negative with being realistic. They are the dream killers. The energy suckers for me are those who constantly talk about themselves like they're important and then only ask you a few superficial questions and satisfy themselves that they showed they care. It's so important to be rid of them. Like Oprah says “be around those who will lift you higher”… I loved Jill's TED talk as well
