Sometimes in our lives we get caught up with being friends with people who are simply not healthy for us. As much as we like to hold up a strong and positive frame of mind, unhealthy friendships take a tole on our spirit.
Not always do we have to be the people that hold one side of the relationship up. It is hard being a good friend to someone that does not have the means or stability to return the favor.
As beautiful as it to be a friend who can help strengthen others in their daily lives and be there for them. The constant wear of not being a good friend in return can be tiring. In no way would I call out to others to stop being somones’ support system, someones helping hand, or someones guide….
I call out to you as a reminder to also be a friend to yourself. Make yourself strong, take rest. Taking time to build yourself up, digging your roots into the ground. Your alone time. Your me time. Spending this time with yourself will give you the time and strength you need to be a support system once again. I call out to you so that you may be more conciously aware of the affect these relationships can have on you.
It is also important that even though you may have friends who inadvertently wear on your spirit, that you remember to surround yourself with people who inspire you. Take time to spend with those who make your heart smile. Take time to with those who lift your spirit. When your feeling worn down and out of luck…spend time with those people doing things that bring joy.
