Ever Gotten Sucked into Someone’s Negativity? Read This.

August 21, 2016 Relationships

As heart-centered, compassionate humans it can be easy to feel into another person’s pain. And when we care about that person, it’s natural to want to help him or her find inner peace, ease, and joy again. We almost make ourselves responsible for their personal growth instead of simply being there to listen and hold space.

Has this ever happened to you?

Recently, I found myself in a situation with a new friend where I completely let go of healthy boundaries and wanted to help her overcome a very unhealthy habit and personal challenge in her life. I found myself getting sucked into her issues and feeling the need to rescue her over and over again.

Talk about an unhealthy cycle. It didn’t take long for me to realize that I was allowing her low, negative energy to bring me down. So I took a step back and established firm boundaries that allowed me to take care of myself first, while also being a friend.

Not easy!

Find out how I did it in today’s video, and be sure to join the conversation below. I want to hear all about your experience being pulled into someone’s negative energy.

Thank you for reading.
