One of the best things you can do for yourself is to release yourself from negative people.
Negative people can contribute to emotions of grief, strain, pain, anger, stress, confusion, distress, and feelings of sadness.
They cause these emotional states within themselves and they can trigger these emotional states among those they spend their time with.
People who are continually living in a state of a low energy sink and those who resist making the changes necessary to improve their situation are experiencing a life lesson - this is true.
You are not required to help anyone learn their life lessons.
It is only ourselves, each of us individually, who are responsible for learning life lessons, overcoming challenges and moving forward in our soul growth.
Simply because you are a high energetic, positive human being who is making upward growth changes in your life, does not mean that you can afford to or even be a benefit to someone who is continually choosing to exist in a negative (low energy) state.
Do you have a friend who alway calls you with drama?
Do you have a sister who keeps finding and dating men who treat her poorly?
Do you have a mother, who no matter what you say or do, seems to always have something nasty to say?
You are under no obligation to help, solve or fix anyone’s life, but your own.
In fact, spending time with people like this may even be bringing you down - spiritually.
Being around negative people can make you a negative person.
As energetic beings, we absorb the energy around us.
The Exhaust Pipe Example
Think of an exhaust pipe.
Image you are driving in your car and in front of you is another car, expelling black smoke.
It’s just in your vicinity. You happen to be behind it. You didn’t necessarily ‘do’ anything to get close to this car - it’s just near you, but because of it’s presence -
You are now breathing in black smoke.
The pollution that was being released from that car, is now being absorbed into your lungs.
And now as you exhale, you breath out, several particles of pollution are released from your own breath.
The more time that you spend behind and around cars emitting high amounts of black exhaust (negativity), the more the black exhaust starts to cover you, coat all of your things and move inward towards your body, as you inhale.
Low (negative) energy emotions being emitted from someone in your presence can cause the exact same effect on you and your emotions.
You can tell you’ve started to inhale the black smoke (negativity), if you’ve been spending time with this person, and now:
You start to question your life choices.
You begin to worry about money.
You pick a fight over house chores with your partner.
You start gossiping about this person.
If you’ve noticed any of these things, it’s time for you to make a change.
The best thing you can do for yourself spiritually and emotionally, is to cleanse your environment and this includes the people in it.
If they’re creating a negative influence, they have to go.
You are not responsible for fixing someone else’s life.
You can’t help other people learn their lessons.
Only they can do that.
