The Best Life-giving Health Advice:
Feeling drained, depleted, and frustrated with the relationships in our lives is all too common!
So many clients come to me who are wanting to improve their health, and they’re exploring every aspect of their life; their diet, their exercise routine, their sleep, their hormones, time management, etc. BUT, they are not taking into consideration the massive energetic toll that toxic + draining relationships have on their physical + mental + emotional health.
Most of us will blame it either on our toxic workplace, strict deadlines, or other stressful parts of our lives.
While this is true, there is also another reason that is often overlooked as a reason for why we are drained in many aspects of ourselves. It may not be obvious at first, especially for certain people who typically count on others’ affection and for people who think that they are in a good relationship.
Relationships which doesn’t reciprocate affection or effort are often the leading cause of being physically, emotionally, and socially drained for many people. Pouring our hearts and soul into relationships that do not pour into our hearts and soul. So many of us are constantly GIVING, and are either in relationships where there is nothing for us to receive or maybe we don’t know HOW to receive because all we’ve ever done is give!
Either way, we are left feeling empty and depleted.
Do not use your precious energy to nurture dysfunctional relationships. Know when to pull back and reclaim your energy. Know when to set boundaries and/or walk away from relationships that are not serving you.
👉 Don’t pour into cups that don’t pour into yours!
You deserve to be poured into. By walking away from empty relationships you are saying “yes” to yourself. When you start to honor and value yourself, you attract relationships in your life that add to your life, rather than take, take, take away.
As much as the love and dedication you give to the people around you, you also deserve the same kind of energy and effort from other people. Value yourself more and before you know it, people who know your worth will start being around you. While those who take you for granted will start distancing themselves away from you.
You deserve a good friend! BUT first, you have to be a good friend to yourself and know when to pull back.
Stick to those who know your worth and reciprocate the amount of energy that you give them. It doesn’t even have to be a romantic relationship for you to apply the tips, there are many kinds of relationships and friendships. In essence, you should always remember that you deserve to feel loved, energized, valued, and fulfilled in every aspect of your life!
I promise you, this is some of the best work you’ll do! You are so worth it ❤️
