Sunday Inspiration: Free Yourself From Negativity

Last Updated on August 28, 2020 by Paula

“Free yourself from negative people.

Spend time with nice people who are smart, driven and like minded. Relationships should help you, not hurt you. Surround yourself with people who reflect the person you want to be.

Choose friends who you are proud to know, people you admire, who love and respect you – people who make your day a little brighter simply by being in it. Life is too short to spend time with people who suck the happiness out of you.”

Blessed Sunday, everyone! I am sharing this, not because the photo is cute (but it is!), but because the quote hits home.  I have written in my personal blog how I was around this negative person for years, supporting her meanness, practically becoming her mini-me.  I finally realized that she is like a dementor.  She sucks the happiness out of me.  I am now on my way (a long way) back to positivity.  I am painfully building back the bridges that I have burned before, just because I hang out with with wrong person, but, heck, I am on my way.

Life indeed is too short, and this is a lesson I tell my children often.  Choose your friends.

  1. Nice photo Sis! hahaha.

    I can't agree much! I am also trying to avoid people who have a negative mind set. It doesn't give good vibes to me interacting with these people.

    Happy Sunday!

  2. So true. this is my mantra now especially at work. i don't want to spend my life being bothered by this kind of peeps so i focused myself more on i have perfected the art of deadma.

  3. hey Marie, it's never to late to change for the better. It's true that once in our life, people really make wrong choices, choice of bfs, husband even (hehe), choice of food, and even friends. At least you've realized soon enough that you should be rerouting your life to the better road! Good luck! 🙂

  4. The photo is adorable! It sure is liberating to be free from negativity. Shifting our focus, adjusting our gratitude lenses on things that matter and make us happy is what counts.

  5. I have to agree the picture does look awfully cute! That's good that you have pulled yourself away from that negative person. There are times in our life that we get in a negative zone or with people for that matter specially those with great influence on you. It's just a matter of realizing it and on time before it gets too late. 🙂

  6. I used to be drained by somebody who just suck the positivity out of me. I think that person has shaped me to a person i never wanted to be. I had to make a conscious effort to get myself together and free myself. The quote you shared is very empowering.

  7. Ang cute ng picture! The dog and the child both have curlers on, lol!

    I agree with the saying. I'd like to add to it too if I may by Mark Twain: Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.
