There are many negative people in the world and if you allow them to do that, they can knock you down. Instead of trying to see the good side of things, some people cling to the bad things instead.
If you are dealing with someone in your life who constantly belittles you or makes you feel bad, limit their presence in the world. These people should have no power over you, and you should not let them bring you down. Giving them a place in our lives will only make things harder for us in the long run.
Even if you may care for these people, they are not good for you and you must do what is best for you. I will discuss some things you can do to prevent taking over your mind and overshadowing your well-being and being under the bus. All these things will be important, but they will be more difficult than you might expect.
If you don’t stay true to yourself, you do something wrong and people give you up in a pleasant way. If it’s not something to worry about pleasing other people, how can you expect them to please you? If you don’t like it, you have to bow to them, and that’s not good for you.
Remember that you cannot solve the problems of others and sooner or later you will settle yourself. You can’t please everyone, but you should at least try to please yourself, even if not everyone likes it.
You are not responsible for the welfare of everyone else, but if you try to solve the problems in everyone’s life, you will end up disappointed. There are people who try to impose their issues on you and it is up to you to separate yourself from them.
You are responsible for your own problems and the people who are confronted with them must deal with them alone, but you must be responsible to yourself.
One must work to understand that one is not defined by the thoughts of others, but by oneself. This means that other people have some pretty unpleasant things to say to you and the words and thoughts that define you.
Ultimately, you are the only person who can define yourself, and you should work on never forgetting that. Surround yourself with people who actually have your best interests in mind, rather than being surrounded by people who have proven that they care about you. Stop excluding people you know are not helping you when you need help, and stop surrounding yourself in a world of people who have proven that they don’t care about you at all.
This is important because it is not always easy to exclude people, but if you do not have the best interests in your heart, they do not deserve a place in your life. Cut out the people who make you feel exhausted and refuse to get entangled in your connections. Let go of the person who refuses to make the effort you have made to make them work and let them go.
Be ready to stand your ground; you are not a toy to play with or to tread on, and you do not have to defend yourself.
