You are surrounded by all sorts of people in the workplace and your otherwise general life. You don’t always have control on who you interact with. Sometimes, you have no option, but to work with that co-worker or manager. But the times you do have some control, make the best of it.
Relationships that Nourish You
You have a choice in who you decide to maintain friendships with. You can decide who you choose to be in a romantic relationship with.
Develop relationships with people who support and uplift you. You want those relationships to nourish you. It’s kind of like eating certain foods.
When you have a greasy burger and fries, you don’t feel that great afterwards. What happens when you have a delicious, tasty meal that is filled with nutrients and health benefits? You feel fabulous!
You Thrive in A Positive Environment
People in your life are the same way. They will either cause you to thrive and blossom. Or they will cause you to wither away. Your friends and loved ones create your environment.
So make sure your sacred space is positive and nurturing.
Limit Interactions with Those Who Drain Your Energy and Spirit
What if you have no choice but to deal with specific people? Like a co-worker or relative? Well, you don’t need to cut yourself completely. Simply limit your interaction with that person.
Don’t like where a conversation is heading? Gracefully exit the conversation. Or tell the person politely you would like to talk about something else.
