Okay I am not talking your Twilight vampires here but those energy sucking vampires that suck the life out of you! Life is such a beautiful thing that being around people who are negative and drain your energy is to be perfectly honest, a waste of time.
Socializing with positive inspiring people can make all the difference in your life. Imagine daily spending time with someone who is happy, full of energy and enthusiasm. You will be inspired to dream big and act big. Key word there is act! Now flip the coin, imagine spending time with someone who is negative, lethargic and uninspiring. Oh I feel drained just writing that and that is precisely what I mean. Imagine telling Ms Negative, ‘I’m going to climb Mt Triglav this summer’ her instant reaction would be negative and if you were drawn into it you might start doubting your decision. Why restrict your lust for life through their energy sucking ways.
Take a look at the people in your life and ask yourself which of them truly make you feel the following:
- Enthusiastic about seeing them
- Inspired to dream big and supported in your ventures
- Supported and loved
- Make you feel like sunshine! (my personal favourite)
Then which ones make you feel:
- Unintelligent and unable to achieve your goals
- Angry, rejected or criticized
- Like the sunshine got ripped out your life
To be successful in life, love and work you need to with people that have admirable traits that you wish to bring to other peoples’ lives. Does this mean you need to cull your friends and family, quite possibly or limited your time with those that suck the life out of you? If you think this is harsh and cruel think about your life. Is it not cruel to yourself to be surrounded by people that make your world small, dark and uninspiring? To be brutal there is no point to your life if you choose to accept that small, dark world. Choose the sunshine and the people that inspire.
So yes kill the vampires in your life, metaphorically of course by choosing to stay away from or if you must be around them use them as an example of what you do not wish to have in your life. Sometimes negative examples can be much more powerful than positive ones if used in the correct context.
