Transformation can be a lonely process. When you decide to change your life, you may have to cut some dead weight.
Forming new habits and creating the life that you want sometimes means setting boundaries. It may even mean cutting some negative people out of our lives completely. When this happens, it can be a tough realization. Simply put your circle of friends should encourage your dreams, not throw shade.
When you begin to transform your life, it sometimes makes your inner circle uncomfortable. It’s not for any other reason than what you’re doing is outside of their comfort zone.
When I started to change my life, I started losing friends.
When this phase begins, you need to welcome it with open arms. It means that you have proof that you’re making progress and moving your life in the direction of your dreams. Their attitude about what you’re doing or how you’re doing it should be of no concern to you. And as your vibration raises, you’ll begin to attract more like-minded people on the same path as you.
Distancing yourself from old ways of thinking is mandatory in this process. If the friends in your circle aren’t doing much self-transformation, then it’s time to move on with no apologies. We’re not obligated to keep people in our lives because of proximity or relation either. We’re allowed to be selective sifters of our circle.
If it’s no longer contributing to your growth or encouraging your new direction, it may be time to let it go. The minute you start to surround yourself with people who uplift and inspire you, the happier you become and the faster you’ll begin to reach your goals.
