It might be hard to fathom but not everyone in our lives is in our corner! When we start to level up; whether it be spiritually, emotionally, mentally, physically, professionally, financially etc.; the ones who love us should be cheering us on. However, these celebratory moments in our lives can sometimes be bittersweet because it can reveal those who don’t really wish us well.
I’m talking about the ones who are used to us just making ends meet, helping us when we’re stuck, encouraging us when we can’t see a clear path, used to being “ahead” of us in certain areas of our lives and so on. It might seem crazy but there are people who literally prefer that you don’t elevate at all or if you do, never surpass them.
As much as these moments are heartbreaking, depending on the type of relationship you have with the person(s), action must be taken. It doesn’t have to even be an exchange of words or hands, it can simply be a quiet removal of that person from your life. Who was time for pathetic people in their lives?! It’s not our job to teach people like this how to better. Leave it to the professionals and get comfortable with removing anyone from your life who isn’t here for the best version of you.
