Hope you’re having a wonderful Day!
I apologize for not posting something new in the past few months, I was caught up in a negative environment where I found myself uninspired, unmotivated and surrounded by people that pushed me down to their level, instead of bringing me up to a better place. but, thank the world that I finally removed myself from that environment and am now in a much better place, and state of mind. I am feeling so much better, more inspired and with more energy. it’s true what they say, “you become your environment” and luckily I was able to realize that before I got sucked into that negative state of being.
I am here today to help you do the same thing, removing yourself from negativity for your own well being, no matter who is bothered by your decision, you have to put yourself first, your happiness first, and if it means getting rid of some people in the process, who you know drag you down? then so be it.
My rule of thumb is: if it’s not going to make you better, than it’s not worth your time!
I was in a work space where people complained, gossiped, lied to you, pretended to be nice to your face, judged you behind your back, and just made made life seem pretty miserable. It was all about other people’s lives: They were more important to talk about. to them, being happy, was just unknown. They judged me, they wanted me to be like them, they disliked the way I was as a person, without even giving me the chance to know me, the minute I got hired, people automatically wanted me gone.
I was there for almost a year, and honestly, I am surprised I stayed that long! but luckily, I stayed mentally strong, which I am very proud to admit, I feel like that experience really taught me how not to allow my outside circumstances change who I really am within, regardless of people’s disapproval of me.
I don’t usually complain, I am pretty positive, most of the time; but when I hung out with my friend, she noticed I complained about one single thing, and that was my job, I told her how the people were, how they treated me and how much of a negative environment this place was for me and this is what she said: “quit your job ASAP.” and although I didn’t listen to her in the beginning, I should have done it from the moment I realized this place wasn’t for me, it was gloomy, dark and draining, definitely not healthy for my state of mind.
It got to the point where I had enough, I wasn’t going to put up with them any longer, I searched for a new job and immediately quit! not only do I get paid more but the difference in the environment, the people welcomed me with open arms, everyone introduced themselves to me, they were all so happy that I was a part of their team, it’s been great. not only that, but also my energy seems to be returning, my happiness is back and I am feeling much more motivated and inspired to help you to create an environment that’s suit to build you up than drain the energy out of you.
And with that being said, here is the point I am trying to make:
I know making the step to remove yourself from something you’re used to doing constantly can be intimidating, and a lot of work. Hell, who wants to start over at another job? Change can be hard, trust me, I know. But if you’re not willing to sacrifice something, how can you get something in return? You have to give to receive, and sometimes giving means you have to let something go, to make space for the new.
If you don’t get out there to make changes, those changes you’re dying to have, aren’t going to come to you, nobody’s going to push you to help yourself. People aren’t going to cheer for you if it means you’ll look better than them, you have to be your own protector, cheerleader and warrior, all of the above when it comes to becoming your own hero.
Which lead’s me to asking you: are you unhappy where you are? Are you dying to go back to school, is there something you’ve been wanting to do really bad but haven’t had the opportunity to do it? Is someone in your life draining your energy? Is there someone making you unhappy? If you answered yes to any of these questions: what will make you happy? Why haven’t you jumped at the opportunity to pursue what you want? Why haven’t you stood up for yourself, removed yourself from this person’s vibes?
You really have to ask yourself these type of questions to become a better person, to change your environment. Nobody really teaches us these things, we go to school, and go to school and then get a job and we just learn to drag ourselves through the year, “same shit, different day” , “I hate coming to work” etc. Conversations nowadays are about what we hate and rarely have I ever talked to someone who is truly happy, or really, just content, it’s always, “you know, getting by through the year.” Or “that’s really hard to do” or “it’s so much work” and honestly, I am over it.
You have to put in the work to get things in return, it’s how the law of attraction works, you can’t just want something and expect to get it.
So, if you’re unhappy where you are, change your environment. Become your own here and stand up for yourself and your happiness. All the fear is in your head, when you take the leap, you’ll realize it’s not as bad as you thought it’d be.
