You Are Who You Hang Out With

Thank you for sharing!

Being who you are is in direct relation to the people you hang out with.

Its not something that we often think about because those we hang out with are usually satisfying some sort of need in your life, one way or another.

Lately i have been wanting to talk about this

because I feel like there has got to be more people out there that have gone through what I have or even something similar that can relate with me.

I’ve always wanted to be an open person and to just be real. Just like everyone else, i want real people in my life.

I want to experience the happiness of friends and family that a lot of people in life get to experience.

And I don’t just want this for myself, I have 3 very beautiful children that I would do absolutely anything for, and I want to place amazing people in their life to help encourage them, inspire them, and to help them grow.

This all starts with me and the people I choose to allow in my own life.

Exposing my kids to such behaviors isn’t healthy, or good for their future. So, it’s vital for me to make these changes.

Happiness, protection, stability are all things that they and myself deserve. I want life to be something my kids are always grateful for.

Life changes and happens really fast one moment and then really slow the next. Having supportive people around you will keep you on the right track; and in the process you get to learn so much about yourself.

It’s during some of the most trying times in my life that i have learned more and more to trust myself and the decisions i make for myself. I would be lying if i said that the people i have surrounded myself with and those i hang out with the most have had a huge impact on those decisions.

The older i get i crave real, raw, authentic people.

Finding trust for others hasn’t been an easy thing for me, but i have learned that its essential in having the right people in your life. You have to have trust in them. Not just because they deserve it, but because you deserve it, too.

We all have so much to learn from each other and the walks we have been on. Creating a community that is a safe place for you and the people you hang out with can be so therapeutic.

You need to know that you are accepted. Once you do, it makes finding strength during hard times much more do-able. 

There is no doubt that we are all meant to be happy.

Learn to trust yourself and the journey you are on, and especially those you hang out with!

Enjoy each moment as it comes. Life flashes by in an instant and you can never get the moment back once it passes.

Thank you for sharing!

  2. An interesting reading that makes us reflect on the infinite ways of the Lord and how he puts us to the test often not faced to fully understand his choices, but certainly his results.

    It is absolutely true that your life is a reflection of who you have in it. I have tried to reduce the negative in my life as much as I can!

  9. While you can’t pick your family, you can choose to create a family of people who truly support you, especially if the family you are born into isn’t always there for you.
