“Spring is nature’s way of saying ‘Let’s Party!’ “
– Robin Williams
While doing some emotional spring cleaning, I realized that there are some people in my life that take without giving, and they have to go.
Friendships work like ATMS. As long as you have the funds available to sustain the friendship, the friendship works. The moment the funds start to dwindle is when the friendship becomes insufficient.
I’m tired of putting funds into this friendship while the other parties continue to withdraw from the accounts. This time isn’t like all the others when I just “deal with it”. I’m pissed. I’ve put water in the pot. Put the pot on the stove. Turned the stove on and now the water is boiling over.
I’m closing the account and redistributing funds amongst the friendships that matter to me.
Ever since I began making lifestyle changes, I’ve become more aware of how cluttered my life is. Materially speaking, I have a lot of stuff that I’m not even using. There’s absolutely no point in holding onto these items when someone else would actually make use of them.
Spiritually, I’ve gotten rid of a lot of baggage. I made peace and let go of emotions that were blocking my blessings.
Once I realized that happiness began with me, I began to distance myself from those who no longer brought happiness to my life.
I feel lighter.
