Who are you talking to? Who are you hanging out with? What are they saying?
Are they gossiping and putting people down? Are they constantly giving you their opinions and advice?
OR are they listening to you and telling you what you need to hear and not what you want to hear?
Here’s the thing, you get to be very intentional about who you put in your space.
Negative energy will poison you. Positive energy will encourage you and uplift you to seek solutions and win/wins in every situation.
When I was experiencing breakdowns in my relationship and marriage, I was very careful about who I shared this information with.
Anyone who would trash talk my husband or man bash was not allowed in my space or in my ear.
Only those with love, compassion and encouragement were allowed to hear my challenges.
People who told me what I needed to hear, not just what would make me feel good. I didn’t need anyone to just “take my side.”
I needed friends, coaches and a support system who told me the truth in a way that would help me grow and breakthrough those breakdowns.
Don’t get me wrong. You get to have an “itty, bitty, pity party.” But you don’t get to live there and party all night long.
Your tribe is made up of people who listen to you, hear you and help you get back up on your feet with love.
