When we talk about support groups, people automatically think that you have a problem. Support groups are often associated with addictions or trauma. Today we are talking about our personal support groups.
A supportive group of people, regardless of your situation, is invaluable. The people around you can build you up or tear you down. Who you choose to be around defines you as a person. Don’t we all know at least one person who can be in the worst possible situation and yet show up anywhere with a smile on their face because they are focussing on the positive rather than the negative?
We are drawn to those we feel comfortable around, but what about when we desire to change? This is the hardest of all things, to move on from what we know to try something different. When we are trying to change habits, or even attitudes, it is extremely important to surround yourself with people who emulate these desired things.
I am not saying that you leave everyone and everything that you know behind, but rather filter your exposure to those that bring you down. If you want change in your life, you must be up to the challenge.
Until the next time….
Stay positive…nothing is ever as bad as it seems at the time.
