No New Friends
I have become very comfortable with letting people go these days. I can remember a time when the thought of losing a friend would devastate me. Now I not only realize when it's time to walk away but I walk away and let them go. I know this may sound a little harsh and maybe even a little cold, especially if you are one of those people that hold on to relationships even when the relationship makes you miserable. However, I have come to a place in my life where I want true joy, internal peace, and a fulfilled purpose. Those things are only possible with the right people around you.
Believe it or not, having people around you just so you can feel accompanied through your journey in life, can actually do more harm than good sometimes… You can become so caught up in who they want you to be or being who they need you to be, that you miss who you're supposed to be. There is also no way you can walk into your purpose being anything other than who you were purposed to be. To be a phony piece of yourself is to have a counterfeit portion of your destiny. This is why I now have very few problems, hardly any quorums, and rarely any issues whatsoever about letting go of what has trouble fitting into my life. I think about what I might be giving up when I consider hiding my true self. I consider who needs me to be exactly who I am meant to be. Then I only make room for what fits perfectly.
It's never personal. It's not even business; it's purpose. I'm unwilling to let go of what is meant for me for what I can see in front of me. I find that once you move people and things out of your life that has no purpose (or their purpose has ended), you see opportunities, people, and experiences that you could not see with them blocking your view.
