3 WAYS TO TELL IF YOUR RELATIONSHIPS ARE WORTH KEEPING
When we are young, we don’t pay attention to how a relationship develops over time We just know that we enjoy the company and what they give to us.
As you grow older, you start to look back on relationships and how they’ve evolved, and what’s been good for you or just absolutely the worse case.
Sometimes, navigating the road of friendships are a hit and miss game. You win some and sadly, you lose some. It’s not your fault or anyone else's fault, it was just time for both of you to grow.
Growing in life requires that you say NO TO NEUTRAL RELATIONSHIPS OF ALL KINDS!
EVALUATE YOUR RELATIONSHIPS AND ASK YOURSELF THESE QUESTIONS
1. IS THIS RELATIONSHIP ADDING VALUE TO MY LIFE? / AM I PROGRESSING HAVING THIS PERSON APART OF MY LIFE?
Everyone is different in their own abilities, life goals, and needs.
Although your relationships are diverse, there should be a common ground in wanting the best out of life. We can’t change others, but we can at least inspire.
That can cause some major pushback and resentment. No one is perfect and we do give grace, but there has to be motivation somewhere.
Your relationships should reflect where you are. Having people in your circle that keep you accountable to dreams and that push you only make you better.
With having these relationships in your life, are they motivating you to go after more? Do these relationships give you hope when you talk with certain people? Do you value what they have to say to you when you go to them for advice?
2. IS THIS RELATIONSHIP KEEPING ME STUCK / AM I ALLOWING THIS PERSON TO BECOME A DISTRACTION IN MY LIFE?
Look at your life, and really see are you allowing others to change you?
Are the people in your life still in the same place that they were last year?
Don’t allow people’s actions to affect how you move in your life. It’s like a cause and effect scenario. When you see your friend or significant other going after your dreams, it will inspire you to go after yours.
When we see others and how they are pushing forward, it inspires us.
Remember, don’t be so engulfed in someone else’s life, that you can’t focus on you own.
3. IS THIS RELATIONSHIP TAKING ME BACK TO WHO I USED TO BE? / IS THIS RELATIONSHIP SERVING ME PURPOSE AND PUSHING ME TOWARDS MY FULL POTENTIAL?
You’re a new person trying to strive for more and progress in life.
The people that bring up your past and try to talk you out of dreams , aren’t for you.
Those people try to breed doubt in your mind because they are too afraid to go after their own dreams.
Evaluate your relationships to make sure you have quality people in your life who has dreams.
Now there’s a difference between those who haven’t found their life’s’ purpose and those that want to stay the same.
There are some people that love living in the complacency that they are already in.
Invest in relationships that serve you and those that you can serve.
Be the type of friend, significant other, or loved one that someone else is looking for. Also, don’t neglect yourself. You are worthy of quality relationships too!
