I'm Not a Snob, I Just Don't Spend Time with Negative People

You may wonder where this rant is coming from. I can tell you that it is a long time coming.

Sometimes family and friends will see you changing and it scares them.  It just might scare them so much that they try to stop you.  They might say you're no fun anymore.  Or that you're stuck up because you don't want to be around certain people and places anymore. 

Be careful to not allow this stuff to affect you. Don't feel selfish for moving on with your life and changing your habits.  Don't be fooled into thinking that you can keep people around you who don't believe in growth and positivity.  Sometimes you have to love from a distance. 

Don't get me wrong, there's nothing wrong with trying to encourage people - but don't be sucked in by guilt trips and other such tactics.  Lose them, keep you.  Sorry if it sounds harsh, but it's really that simple.

The hardest part of all of this for me is when I no longer want to engage in the same kind of activities or people as my partner.  I guess my idea of fun has changed.  I don't want to sit around and hear about how his friend cursed someone out at the grocery store or he lost another job for displaying unethical behavior.  Really?  This is the company you keep?  His friend is 35 years old and thinks this behavior is not only acceptable but cool???  No thanks. 

Remember the Law of Attraction:

"According to this law, you will attract to you that which you are. The law is activated by your dominant thought patterns. The purpose of this law is to show where you are in your consciousness and to give you the opportunity to lift yourself where you want to be. You can do any good thing you want to do with the right adjustment of your thought and actions. If you want prosperity and success, you must change your thought to reflect the things you want.

Many people live and die never experiencing anything greater than what is handed down to them. If you are born amidst, lack, failure, struggle, limitation, you do not have to stay there. Do not claim inherited limitations. The law of correspondence can and will move to the height of your consciousness. You cannot attract better, however, until you can better lift your thoughts. Lift your expectations. Lift yourself. Train yourself to mentally look for good things you want and the good will respond."

Please share your experiences with me.  Have you had to separate yourself from certain people and if so, have they lashed out at you for doing so?
