Choose Your Circle Wisely

A family can make or break you if you are ill-prepared, distracted, mentally challenged, or something else might be going on with you.  Those who are able to have it all from family to home ownership do so because of discipline and a strong desire to stick out with their families come hell or high water.  But what they don't say is that they are highly selective about who is permitted to enter into there social circles. 

So when you notice the phone calls and invites aren't showing up at your door step, you are not a part of the cliché.  It doesn't make it right or wrong it just is.  Some individuals do very well a part from their families of origin while others thrive when they are around.  To each his or her own, but whatever you choose to do with your life, choose wisely!

Be Free of Toxic Communications - Troublesome Family Members, Friends

No one cares but you.  No one hurts like you.  No one fights like you.  You can be your own worse enemy when it comes to your family.

When you feel like you just can't do much more for your difficult family members, why do it?  You know how they will respond to your comments, suggestions, thoughts, and more.  Why open your mouth?  You know how they will behave if you should reveal private things about your life.  You have a history with these people and it may not be nice, pleasant, loving or generous.  So why work yourself up this weekend and the next fighting with people who may not like or respect you.

Sometimes we ask for trouble because we simply don't know when to throw the towel in when it comes to our troubled relatives.  There is no going along to get along any more when you know all that you do is upsetting not only you, but your loved ones too.  Chances are those closest to you are sick and tired of hearing you talk about your family.  Put the brakes on some things concerning them and be inspired to do something different apart from those you are simply tired of.
