I think its really important to understand how and where you put your energy.
Take some time to reevaluate where its going and notice how easily we are so willing to give it away. Is your energy going to you, your career, your hobbies, things you love, people you love? Or are you giving it away to negativity, toxic people and one sided relationships?
Im serious when I say think about it.
Make sure you are able to recognize and separate the situations in which you CAN change and the situations you CAN'T. We tend to fixate on situations or people we CAN'T change because we want so desperately to help, to make it better, to “fix” the problem. But the truth is... you can’t.
People won't change just because you want them too. Situations won't change just because you want them too.
But you know what you can do? You can decide how you react. You have the choice to either let the things you cannot change consume you, or you can recognize it for what it is, be supportive and move on. Do not allow your happiness, your self worth, your optimism be jeopardized by the things that surround you. Do not allow the constant distractions from the outside world cloud the vision of your path. We are not lost. We are exactly where we need to be.
Decide where you will put your energy.
Decide how you will live your life.
Make the choices you want to make.
Experience with people you want to experience with.
Share with those who will protect what is given to them.
No one has that power for you, but you.
