When making changes in life, sometimes you have to be careful whom you share your thoughts. I’ve learned over the past few years that sometimes the ones you think would really have your back turn out to be the worst of enemies.
We all are different and not all have the same aspirations in life, but it’s important to connect with those that have a vision, or headed in the direction of progress and change.
There is sometimes coveting, envy and jealousy in relationships that will come to surface just from a change. Then you wonder how could they have been in my presence all this time praying and telling me you hope everything comes together, and once the breakthrough happens their intent changes.
Also everybody that say they are in your corner may not be.
When the conversation changes to: You know I wouldn’t do that if I were you; I don’t want that type of car just a waste of money; That’s just too much house for two people; Why you leaving your job, you know the economy is too bad to make a change. Those are some of the many negative reactions I have gotten from just sharing my next chapter and plans with some pretty close friends.
You see, some people don’t like change and therefore don’t want you to change. It’s not that I think I’m better than anyone, but our desires may not coincide with their desires.
Therefore, you have to break away from the negative thoughts others send your way and especially in your presence. Negative energy is just as powerful as positive energy.
Just remember some people are in your life for a season and when you go up and they don’t want to come it’s time to severer the ties that bind.
