Many times we’ve all allowed people into our lives with the hope of great friendship only for it to turn out a sour relationship. Many conceal their real character behind faces and flattery; some come into your live for their selfish ambitions, what they can get and not what they can give. Many have found themselves in unhealthy relationships; friendships that has caused them many pain and lost opportunities. Nevertheless, beginning today you can make a positive change to choose friends who support you and the vice-versa and separate yourself from those negative draining ones. You have to set limits of the type of friends and their level of accessibility to your own life. Remember: A Friend who attends to you only at his spare-time is not worth your prime-time.
You must understand that “Not everyone should have a front row seat in our lives. There are some people in your life that need to be loved from a distance. It's amazing what you can accomplish when you let go of or at least minimize your time with draining, negative, incompatible, not-going-anywhere relationships. Observe the relationships around you. Pay attention. Which ones lift and which ones lean? Which ones encourage and which ones discourage? Which ones are on a path of growth uphill and which ones are going downhill? When you leave certain people do you feel better or feel worse? Which ones always have drama or don't really understand, know, or appreciate you? The more you seek quality, respect, growth, peace of mind, love and truth around you, the easier it will become for you to decide who gets to sit in the front row and who should be moved to the balcony of your life."
Here are some thoughts on this:
“If those who claim to love or like you can't value you and how important you are, let them keep stepping and please love them from a distance” ~ S. Efua Sackey
Bhumi Hans stated “If someone really loves you, they wouldn't let you slip away no matter how hard the situation is. No matter how angry you get, you always end up forgiving the people you love”
