For the past few years many of my friendships have been with people who tend to be negative in nature. All of my life I have been the friend that helped everyone with their problems and could “fix” just about anything. So I guess I figured that I could “fix” these people as well and make them see that a little positivity really can go a long way.
Boy was I wrong! Instead of helping them see some beauty and fun in life, they began to bring me to the “dark side” of negative thinking.

I began to ween myself away from the friends that were more like me.  

Then one day, out of the blue, I really began to see what I considered my closest friend in her true light. I didn’t like what I saw. Then I took a good look at myself and really didn’t like what i saw happening. I was being taken for granted, used and basically in a one sided friendship.

I have since stopped communication with this person, and I feel that a huge weight has been lifted. The sad part is that other friends have also noticed the change. This is sad because they saw what i was becoming and were uncomfortable mentioning it to me.

I am now negative free and enjoying life so much more. I have become my old friendly self and have started working on repairing the friendships that give me so much joy.

All fo this has also given me new hope for my jewelry business, and for the first time I feel that I am going to have a successful year in 2009.

Yay me for realizing what all of the negative thinking was doing to me and to have the courage to cut the ties and get back to the real me!

    • Pegi, I am so glad that you stepped outside of yourself and had this powerful enlightenment.
      It’s seems that all my life I have attracted negative, toxic, people.

      No matter what you do to try and help them, it seems as though it is never enough. But there comes a point when you just know that they don’t really want anything good.

      I try to fill my days with positive thinking.
      I have an aunt that I have completely disconnected with because she is very toxic. When someone controls your emotions for you, it’s time to let go.
      I wish you the best of everything good life has to offer you.
      Have a great day

    • Thank God you got out before you got sucked into that abyss of negative energy. Positive energy brings so much light to life.

      You GO Girl.
