I am sending you some positive vibes, love and light in track loads because you deserve that and much more!! It is Friday and I get to talk to you! Today I just wanted to speak to that voice inside you that always loves and appreciates you and wants the best for you. Look around your circle of friends and family. Family, that I am fully aware that you cannot control that, but how about friends. What kind of company do we keep around ourselves?
There’s a quote our parents love to tell us, Show me you friends and I’ll tell you your character Well, it is somehow flawed in my perspective. This is because, if you let your friends influence you in every aspect of your life then the quote may apply. But none of us let’s our friends dictate how we live our lives. But with that in mind, what kind of friendships do we cultivate? Are we open to whatever the friendship might hold or are we closed off. And no I’m not hinting at a relationship. No. My point is growth, mentally, spiritually and in knowledge. Friends can build us up in this way.
This looks like the end of my litu motivational monologue but I have another point. There is another quote I want to share related to this but this one I do not dispute. Yes you can see from above my brain has left for the weekend hehe, but this is what the general idea of the quote is. We cannot cultivate a healthy friendship if we are not healthy friends to ourselves.
We cannot share our hearts and our passions if we ourselves have no idea what those things are. In simpler terms, we cannot give what we do not have. I assure you that it is scary to be an open book, with ourselves first then our closest circle. But it is rewarding in immense ways. Loving ourselves does so much more for us than we realize. It opens so many does that were closed up because of one reason or another.
We get to live! We get to be and if you are yourself with every single person you meet then kudos to you!!! I am still learning, I am still growing and failing better and doing better. Friends are our comfort, our support system. But the first person to do that for you, is yourself!
