SIMPLIFY (Part 1)
One of the key elements of a simplified life is knowing what to hold on to and what to let go. Removing Things that require so much energy and yet yields no profit in order to make room for things that are of value to us. Simplify your relationships.
In this time of “involuntary stay at home,” I think we have some free time on our hands to really think about the several relationships in our lives. And ask the important question… Is this relationship in alignment with my values?
It’s high time you stopped cramming up your life with unnecessary friends that do more harm than good. If not, nurturing a relationship with such keeps depriving you of valuable time that you can spend with friends that really do need you, that add joy to your life, that encourages and helps you in achieving your purpose.
Check your heart and access the archive of events that have characterized each relationship and do well to recognise the toxic ones and bid farewell.
Saying adieu to some relationship may mean saying goodbye to a part of who you used to be at a time, but look at the bright side. You are in a new season of life, and this season has its own goodies in store. Why then hold on to relationships that deny you the opportunity of making this moment count?
The time you spend talking and chatting with someone that brings out the worst in you, someone who pressures you into things you will rather not do or bully you into someone you never want to be again can be spent meaningfully talking with the true companions in your pilgrim’s journey.
Declutter your life of relationships that drain your energy and friends that leave you worse than they met you after a conversation or get together.
All I’m saying is this; Remove the excess relationships that are no longer serving you so you can make room and focus on the ones that truly count.
He that walketh with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed.
