How to choose your people.
Who are you? Are you who others perceive you to be? Are you a woman who knows her value? Let's discuss value for a second. Your value is not what others think of you, not what you wear, and not your possessions. Your value lies in the importance of who you consider yourself to be and what you believe you deserve. Your value is how you take care of your mental, physical, spiritual, and emotional health. Your value is how you treat others; your silent demands, and your personal code of conduct you expect from yourself and others. Say nothing but expect high-level reciprocal actions. Lastly, when you know your value, you possess the strength to walk away when a relationship of any kind no longer serves you well.
Hello, good people; it's been a while; I had to take a "backseat" for a moment, but I'm here now, so let's get to it, shall we? Who are you? I ask this question as a reminder for you to take some time to evaluate your conscious state of self-awareness and to pique the interest of those who spend a lot of time in the company of folks who see you through the lens of negativity. If you are not careful, insecurity can rear its ugly head. Who are you? No need to explain who you are to anyone because the right people will see you. I had to learn this lesson the hard way. Listing to the critics about who you are can be a fine line. There is a saying when so many people who don't know each other say the same thing about you; you may want to listen because you are the common denominator in this situation; everyone can not be wrong.
On the contrary, you must consider who's talking. Where is this person on your self-recognition, self-love, and motive scale? Secondly, who is the circle of people you're interacting with? Are your circle of people innovators, optimistic, have a strong sense of self-love, and neither gain nor lose themselves because of your success or demise? It would be best if you evaluated yourself when this happens, regarding your choices of people. Sometimes we can make repetitive choices, unaware of the patterns we choose.—for example, choosing the company of someone because they feed your insecurities instead of choosing to be in the company of people who enrich your strengths. Do you even realize you are being "fed" mentally by every encounter? Re-enforce your power of self-awareness and conscious decision-making when choosing your circle, always choose you first.
