As we go through life, we learn more and more that the people we feel the most comfortable with and can act ourselves around are those that exude a positive, warm, energy about themselves – one that shows in their eyes, their smile, and just generally by the way they interact with you. They just have that positive glow.
Now here’s the thing about energies: anytime you make a connection with someone, you must envision a “Proceed with Caution” sign.
This is because each person you meet presents a unique path – and whether you want to go down that path will be determined by the quality of the energy. If the energies are out of sync, that path is best left untouched, but if there is something substantial there, you will feel it, and taking that path will feel natural and right.
We encounter many people in our lifetime, but we won’t get along and connect with everyone we meet – and that’s okay. The important thing to remember is that it is perfectly fine to make a conscious choice to not want to pursue a connection with someone if the initial energy just doesn’t fit. Stop trying to connect with people who simply don’t get you.
It certainly doesn’t have to mean that you have any less respect for that person or don’t wish them well in life, it just means that your energies are out of sync and it just doesn’t work. It’s that plain and simple.
Everyone has their own circle of happiness and healthy connections can only be made if what makes you happy complements another person’s source of happiness rather than conflicting with it.
This whole concept also rings true for people who currently exist in your life that you are considering parting ways with. The older you get, the more important it becomes to keep a tighter knit on the people you call friends. It becomes a lot less desirable to keep those around that either make you question that friendship by their perceived ill intent characterized by their actions or those that are just going in an entirely different direction in life that you cannot relate to anymore.
So remember, each interaction in life opens up a unique path to potentially building and sustaining a valuable and rewarding relationship with that person – whether it’s in your personal or professional life. That path needs to be worth walking on – otherwise – you are better off taking a different route.
