There comes a time in your life when you may need to distance yourself mentally and emotionally from people around you so that you can make your own dreams come true. This isn’t easy to do, especially if you love the person or the individuals are family members and friends. It’s human nature to want to help others but I’m learning the hard way that sometimes I just need to shut off.
You see, focusing on other people can get in the way of you manifesting what you want in life. Do you have someone in your life who you have tried repeatedly to help but you seem to be getting nowhere? I’ve discovered that this constant emphasis on another person drains my energy. I remember my father saying to me many years ago that, ”you can lead a horse to water but you can’t make it drink”.
I was reminded of this recently when I became so very frustrated because someone I have been trying to help just would not take my well-meaning advice. Then I sat back and took a good hard look at my life. I realized that I was not achieving my own goals, I felt unfulfilled and resentful. The energy that I was directing to someone else could have been channeled into my own life’s purpose.
We have all been given "free will" and the ability to make choices, so when you have given enough advice and you get to the point where you feel drained, give up! Your creative energy cannot flow as it should if you are fixated on another person. Remember that you have one life to live, only you can make it epic! So don’t waste your time on people who don't value what you have to offer.
