Your Vibe Attracts Your Tribe
Have you ever been in a room full of people and just thought to yourself ‘I don’t belong here’? Maybe because the conversation at that moment was just far from from anything you would want to talk about or merely cause the vibe was completely off!
I definitely have!
I tend to be very selfish when it comes to who I spend my time with and that has led to me being called stuck up or just people feeling like I think I’m better than everyone else. When in reality I just like to be around people that motivate me to do better, people that inspire me, people that push me to achieve my goals, people that genuinely care about me and people that are in the same creative space as me. If you are not adding value to my life, I have no reason to be around you.
The saying “you are who you surround yourself with” is so accurate. In the past, I watched myself slowly become someone I didn’t want to be because of certain people I hung around. This affected the way I treated other people and I slowly began to resent myself.
Whether you like it or not, you will pick up certain traits from your friends and sometimes you can’t control which ones you pick up. When I saw myself changing, I knew it was time to detach. I hope you also know when it is time to let go.
Am I saying you should completely abandon the people you love? No! Love them all you want, but sometimes you just have to do it from a distance. What I am saying is, be careful who you let in your space.
When it comes to being around good company, be completely relentless. Imagine being on a diet or deciding to eat clean for the rest of your life, think of bad company as carbs. Say no to people that don’t bring out the best in you the same way you will say no to carbs! Got it?
The same way you are picking your company is the same way other people are picking theirs. You might be carbs to someone, you never know. So, always remember to be a good friend to the people that pick you. Just be a good person in general and you will attract good people to your life. Your vibe attracts your tribe!
Be You. Do You. Stay True.
