What Drains My Energy and How I’ve Reduced It!😉😊

“Maybe you’re low on energy because you’ve been giving your time towards meaningless things. The people, convos, jobs, relationships, habits, foods just aren’t feeding you.” -Tatiana Jerome

This is so true!🙌 Sometimes we give entirely too much time & attention to the wrong things, people and even problems. Not only is it energy draining but in some cases it can be emotionally draining too. Over the past few months, I’ve been on a mission to regain my sense of “self-peace” back & along the way, I have discovered that there is truly power in loving people from a distance. As a result of putting that back into action, I’ve noticed that I’m not nearly as stressed anymore and I feel free more than ever now to actually focus on my own dreams, goals and other things I’m in the process of trying to accomplish. Loving people from a distance doesn’t mean that you don’t still love & care about them or support them. Loving from a distance doesn’t mean you’re cutting people completely out of your life either. It just simply means that you’re giving them the space and time to get their minds right before you let them back into your life. Some people can be so toxic and not only people but also meaningless things period. I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again.. if you’re not careful, people will drive you crazy! They will stress you out & have you drained over things that really don’t have anything to do with you.

I’m more protective over my energy now! I’m protective over everything now actually when it comes to myself lol but in all seriousness, I’ve gotten to where if it doesn’t concern me, if it doesn’t contribute to reaching my goals/success or if it doesn’t benefit my growth in any kind of way.. I don’t too much fool with it anymore. It’s not that I’m acting funny; I’ve just realized that it’s a waste of time for me to be getting caught up in everybody else’s business and other unnecessary things that don’t really require my attention. Sometimes you have to back away from certain conversations and just remember “You’ve got stuff to do.” More action, less talk. Remember, YOU get to make daily decisions about who and what deserves access to you!! Don’t ever forget that. No one has to understand your positive changes. Do what’s best for you. 💞

STOP REACTING TO EVERYTHING!!!

It’s not necessary to R E A C T to everything!! It’s really not. Now, that’s much easier said than done but over the past few weeks.. I’ve gotten to see how powerful “silence” can be. I’m just going to be honest with you, I’ve been in the process of distancing myself from a few people here lately. It’s not that they’re bad people, they’re just toxic and I don’t need that type of negativity in my life right now. I got places I’m trying to go, things I’m trying to do, goals I’m determined to reach and I’m just out here making real boss moves! I don’t know about you but I don’t function properly when I’m under a lot of emotional stress. These few toxic individuals stress me out emotionally, okay? I’m not just talking about the emotion of sadness; I’m talking about anger too! They get on my nerves. They get on my nerves more than anybody else because they know exactly what buttons to push to get directly under my skin.

I’ve felt more peace in the past few weeks than I have in the past few months. I’ve finally realized that some things are just too small for me to be give my attention to and pour any type of energy in. I’m learning that it’s better to just send good vibes, prayer, love from a distance and move on! Today, I feel GOOD because I haven’t been responding to what usually triggers me. It has no power because I don’t give it any attention. I’m telling you, silence is a powerful thing and sometimes.. silence is just the best response. I’m learning to stop giving people so much power over me and my emotions. So if you’re like me, still learning this kind of life lesson.. just remember, the problem is irrelevant. It’s your response that matters 🙂
