I made a major lifestyle change the past few years and I went from using drugs, associating with people who use and having a fairly “poor me”, “life sucks” and “I hate everyone” outlook on life – to waking up and sobering up to the reality that life is exactly what you make it and what you choose to surround yourself with absolutely is your reality.
I have a love/hate relationship with social media, and please know that I wish it was used for better purposes. However, I did notice that when I dropped some of the old “friends” and picked up a whole new set of like minded, positive vibe having and enlightened people – everything changed.
My feed went from hearing bitching and complaining about how hard life is and what a struggle it was along with hate, envy and crude humor – to empowering thoughts and positive sayings and words of hope and kindness.
It makes a world of difference to start out my day reading about how to empower myself, wake up to the reality that I am in control and to feed myself love, compassion and acceptance instead of anger, aggression, depression and hate.
I felt bad about dropping the people for a half of a second because I didn’t want anyone to think that I think I’m better than them or that I don’t like them but I had to do this for myself and my own mentality and well being.
I urge people to do the same. Consider who you keep as a “friend” and for what reason. Consider if people are helping or hurting your situation. Don’t be afraid to let go of the negativity for your own sake. Unfollow their feed if you still want to keep them as a “friend.”
Don’t get me wrong, I love everyone and I can’t wait until some of them wake up and realize how beautiful life truly is and start loving themselves enough to make those hard changes – I just hope they understand that is what I am doing right now.
We are a composition of everything we put in our bodies and that includes what we feed our brain.
Deeply consider that every single thing that you look at, read, watch and speak of – are all creating your reality.
