Loving yourself includes surrounding yourself with Positive people. Positivity and Positive Vibes come from those who live their lives Positively. It is important to have a great exchange through experiences and spending time with those who uplift and encourage you.
These experiences can pour into your spirit in a way that fuels what God has already put into you to do. I always try my best to encourage those in my life, and I feel blessed when those same people take the time to encourage me. If you are surrounded by Positivity, then this will become normal to have a positive exchange with those you encounter throughout your faith journey.
Just recently, I went to support and spend time with a friend. I attended an event, and then she invited me to hang out with her family. We all enjoyed each other’s company, interacted with each other and had a really fun time. I felt like wow, it’s been a long time since I have been surrounded with that many Positive people at the same time. This reminded me of some changes I need to continue to work on in my life.
People who are toxic, negative, and opposed to the Positivity in your life have to be distanced. It really doesn’t matter who they are, family, childhood friends, co-workers, whoever. I cannot afford to be distracted, used by the devil or just surrounded by people who are not happy with their lives and are ready to take it out on those undeserving of their wrath. Stay away from these types of people. It is important to still love and pray for toxic and negative people, just with a great distance in place.
By doing this, we can continue to stay focused on the plan and purpose God has for us without sacrificing our happiness and faith journey by being regularly exposed and affected by negativity. God always wants us to move in a forward motion. Obstacles will be overcome and life will go on just the way God intended it to be. Never forget, God’s Got Us!
