Ya’ll, we’ve all had that ONE friend who we thought we were going to be RIDE OR DIE with. COME to find out LĀTER they were never a friend to begin with.
Maybe they were your friend until things got a little more complex and things didn’t seem to be that convenient ANYMORE.
All of a sudden somebody said,”AIN’T NOBODY GOT TIME FOR THAT!”
Now, I’ve had my share of “bad” friends ALSO KNOWN AS frenemies throughout the years.
It wasn’t UNTIL my junior year of high school that I ACTUALLY learned the meaning of a friend + enemy (FRENEMY).
We’ve ALL been through this P•H○A•S○E, at least ☝🏽TIME, in YOUR life.
Let’s take a WALK DOWN MEMORY LANE shall we…🚶🏽♀️
I had this “friend” that I was rockin with back in the day. We were like TWO PEAS IN A POD; literally inseparable.
We did the USUAL THINGS that besties do. We SHARED SECRETS, LAUGHED, CRIED, and JOKED ofcourse. But, this ONLY LASTED FOR A SEASON🍂🍃. Eventually our friendship took a ⬅️left and things were NO LONGER the same as they had used to be.
Why??? There were many occasions when the LOYALTY, respect, SUPPORT and COMFORT just wasn’t mutual. I thought that if I was there in her VULNERABLE MOMENTS, that she would do the same for me. But the plot twisted.
But you LIVE and you LEARN, right?
I realized the “friend” I had was ONLY FOR A SEASON🍃🍂. But I was grateful for the experience, because it taught me a much needed lesson…
Because well… TOXIC PEOPLE are just not my kinda people.
And what was THAT? It was to never associate myself with people who made me FEEL SMALL ,INSECURE, or unappreciated, and to only surround MYSELF with people that RADIATE POSITIVE ENERGY instead.☀️
From then on, I promised MYSELF to only keep a circle of friends who PRAYS FOR ME, pushes me to LEVEL UP, CORRECTS ME when I’m WRONG, and CLAPS FOR ME when I #WIN.
Being around POSITIVE PEOPLE is medicine for MY SOUL and hunny energy is E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G!
The MORE YOU #start to spend time with people who UPLIFT YOU, the MORE your life #STARTS to SHIFT into better days🌈🌻🦋.
Today, I ENCOURAGE YOU to evaluate your circle. If your CIRCLE isn’t striving to make you better, then IT’S TIME to grab some scissors and do some cutting. ✂️✂️✂️
YOU DESERVE a circle who VALUES YOU, APPRECIATES YOU, and MAKES YOU FEEL GOOD about YOURSELF 😇.
So, find your Tribe & ENJOY THE RIDE!
