Who are you friends with? Wherever you are in life, the chances are at least 30% of your entourage is affecting you negatively… and what’s more… you know exactly who those people are. If you feel like you’re surrounded by negative people, you need to slowly but surely diminish the time you spend with them. For many of you, this will be so frightening and one of the hardest things you’ll ever have to do.
When going through agoraphobia, I realised I had many negative people in my life, and walking out of those relationships is the best thing I have ever done. It is hard, and you may feel like you’ll end up alone and without any friends to support you, but that’s wrong. You’ll always have someone to support you, but the people who will make you grow the most are those who will understand you and push you to do things you never thought you would do.
Remember, you are never obliged to stay in a negative environment. Walking into them is part of life, but remaining in them is a choice.
