I suppose this ties in with my last blog, Feeling like I don’t belong is that it good to build good relationships, and surround yourself with like minded people who get you.
I remember being surrounded by real negative people when working in a call centre and would constantly be complaining and moaning, and it got to the point I found myself doing the same. I had to stop myself.
I kind of settled and gave up on building my dream life for a while.
I was relieved to get away from that. So when I was asked to join another team, I leaped at the chance.
There are people out there that will try and drag you down, just because they are having a bad day, and others that can make you feel on top of the world, and its those people you want to surround yourself with.
Don’t get me wrong, I am sure we all like to have a moan, but not constantly. Finding a good relationship has its honeymoon period, and then dark days, but if you can get through those times then it can continue to be amazing the rest of the time.
Communication for me is the key to a good relationship and being able to compromise.
Sometimes there is jealousy among friends, I have certainly been guilty of that, but when I have I have faced it and answered, why am I feeling this way?
Do I not want my friends to do well?
YES OF COURSE I DO.
Handling those feelings and again talking about it can really make a relationship stronger and rather than be jealous, think why are they doing so well?
I know they have had more drive than me, settled with their life in a happy way, I have always been looking for something more in my life and different, and still am, but building relationships is also important, and without them I know I could never function like I do, and be determined as I am.
Seeing the drive of those close to me, helps drive me forward and thrive myself.
So find those relationships that make you feel good, and if you do disagree, brush it off and talk, then start again. Relationships need building like houses need foundations, once you have the foundations then you can create something magical, that may last for a long time.
