Something that people ask me a lot is, why are they always so tired? This could be for various reasons. Are you eating enough? Are you sleeping enough? Are you moving your body? Are there any medications that you’re taking that may be contributing to your exhaustion?
But something i urge people to consider is, who and where are you placing your energy into? Social media is an energy exchange, ever spent a lot of time on your phone and somehow feel physical and mentally drained? Engaging with people around you is an energy exchange, do you ever spend time with someone and feel drained? Have you ever spent time with someone and walked away feeling vibrant and alive? These are all energy exchange.
You don’t have to meet someone in the energy they’re projecting onto you. We are told from a young age that saying no is almost disobedient, its rude and selfish, but this is because we live in a world where there are zero boundaries, the people who are on top have gotten there by crossing boundaries and now we live in a world where no one has energy anymore, no one has intense passion and fire anymore.
You can lovingly say that you respect where someone is at, but you’re not going to meet them there. This is an act of self care. This is loving, not only to yourself but for those around you. Boundaries are a way to show love, again that may be self love, or it may be that you care for a relationship or friendship so much that you need these boundaries in order to show up as your best self.
Sit back and reflect on how you feel when you interact with others. Is your time better spent manifesting and working on things that are going to uplift you, or are you going to pour your energy and time into people and situations that do not serve you?
