davis.hilton ok! so I'm really hoping to get some good advice from you guys. I'm a very sincere person and I'm often very invested in my friends and the people around me, and I'm really glad I'm this way! however, I've noticed over the last year that it is actually commonly a very negative thing. I'm having trouble staying grounded, and knowing when to protect myself from the negative energies that I can absorb. I love to invest myself into others, but I've done it to the extent that I've been overwhelmed a lot, spent too much money, or been overly stressed. are there techniques you use or know of that help you to avoid taking in negativity, or help you to stay centered? 17h
  •   samhorse93 Definitely remembering that taking care of yourself allows you to take care of others. If you give your all to everyone you're spreading yourself so thin that eventually you're going to break and not be able to do it anymore. If you give time for yourself you will become recharged and be able to give back to others. Also a thing to remember its that sometimes people have something to learn from their struggles. While you want to take care of their problems, they need to learn how to figure it out for themselves. We all learn lessons the hard way and sometimes allowing those lessons to happen is what's best for a friend even if it's hard. 8h
  •   taj.jpg I'm a lot like you in a number of ways, and so I know exactly what you're feeling. I think the piece of advice that I could give would be to really think about the people you're spending time with — do they value your time just as much as you value theirs? Do they care about you in the same way that you care about them? Are they always friends with you, or are they only present when they need something for you? It's hard to cut negativity out of your life when it's coming from people you care about, but I really think it's better for everyone in the long run. I still see tremendous value in being invested in people and being super loving and caring, because I usually get what I put into my relationships, which makes me really happy:) in the end, do what you know is right and what will make you happy, and don't change who you are 6h

  •   matejagrujic Actually, I am myself in some negative mood right now! I'm annoyed by people, even in a company that usually I'm comfortable with! I am aware that right now I am tough to handle but I'm just letting it pass naturally by on it's own! Today I went on a road trip to a another town with some friends and my boyfriend and I wasn't my positive and cheerfull self... but It didn't brought my down completely! And I let it went by... it was ok day! We went to a restourant and had fun by the river where we cuddle with horses! And those creatures brought me back into my old self! Animals have that power @davis.hilton! 6h

davis.hilton the color blue is no less beautiful because it exists alongside the other colors of a rainbow. "blueness" itself depends on the existence of the other colors, for if there were no color but blue, we would never be able to see it. 5d
