I pick my kind of people!
“Why are you so picky with the people you let into your life, Lewis?”
…a few people have asked me recently.
So, to answer the question:
I’ve got a confession to make…
I don’t let many people in.
– Business colleges…
Ive been hurt before by people close to me, and this causes me to be hyper vigilant around the people I let get close to me.
That may seem protective…
YES! You’re damn right.
I am worth protecting.
My mind, my emotions, my feelings?
…and it’s okay to value yourself enough to decide who you let in.
Once you realise how much you’re worth, and how much you have to offer someone…
You are very selective of:
– Who you allow yourself to be influenced by.
– Who you spend your valuable time with.
If you feel yourself not aligned with somebody, they don’t give you the right vibe, or they make you feel bad about yourself more than they make you feel good…
It’s okay to respect yourself enough to say, “Nope. Sorry. No space for you here”.
It might be that they aren’t doing anything wrong most of the time, so it’s hard to detect – and they even have some great qualities.
But, humans are easily influenced.
We can absorb: looks, vibes, words and everything in between, very easily…
It’s doesn’t take much for someone to really affect your state of mind, and wellbeing.
This will impact your actions.
Which will impact your life!
The reality is, no matter how many positive things someone brings to the table:
– If you feel they don’t appreciate you.
– Don’t have the same values as you.
– Treat you in a way you’re unhappy with.
– Make you feel negative in ANY WAY.
Get them out, sooner rather than later…
As hard as it might be…
Because your future self will thank you for it.
There are a lovely selection of people amongst the 7 billion people that won’t treat you like that.
And as nice as these people might be sometimes…
Maybe, to you, they just aren’t YOUR kind of people.
And you deserve to be around only YOUR kind of people.
And If that’s picky…
Then I guess I’m picky.
I pick my kind of people 👊🏼
