Beware of Energy Vampires!
For a very big part of my 30’s, the more I talked about the things that bothered me the grumpier that I became. I have always noticed that when one person starts to complain it doesn’t take long for someone else to follow suit and before you know it a complete “bitch-fest” is going on. Face it, we all have our own problems, people that make us crazy, family stuff to get over, etc. The problem is that we don’t need to make it everyone else’s problem while we’re at it. I’m not suggesting that you bottle this up, you need to be able to talk to a good friend or sometimes even a therapist but bitching and moaning to anyone that will listen will only serve to make you feel worse the longer it goes on.
This can also go another way… is there someone in your life that constantly complains? They can be just as draining (if not more so) than when you are griping about the cost of tea in China. Your time is very valuable so choose how you spend it wisely. I’m not saying we can avoid those “energy vampires” completely but we can certainly minimize our time spent with them!
Do you know someone that sucks your energy dry?!
