“The wrong person will give you less than what you’re worth but that doesn’t mean that you have to accept it.” ~ Sonya Parker; author, blogger, and activist.
“The wrong person makes you beg for attention, affection, love and commitment. The right person gives you these things because they love you.” ~ Unknown.
Honor life and respect yourself daily by not engaging with people whose only purpose is to be negative, even if those people are family and you live with them; but engage and instruct yourself with those who care and support you, those who are eager to lend a hand and see you succeed. Life is too precious and short to waste on the wrong people (even if those people gave you birth).
Quite often then those negative or ignorant people surrounding us are family or friends; therefore, it might be hard to avoid conversation with them, but still you can be conscious of who you are and protect your mind from negativity.
Mental and spiritual elevation is individual as Jesus and Buddha have showed us with their examples; so, no one can elevate you and take you to success and happiness, no religion created by the ego of man, no family that loves you or hates you, but you yourself are the light to the world, to your word.
Self-love is about seeing beyond people and institutions, is about loving yourself so much that you create your own path. So do not focus on the people around you which may be trying to bring you down, but understand that the ego is powerful and so they might feel failure on their own lives and perhaps a bit jealous.
Never take anything personal (even if it is a close family member), people have their own demons or inner struggles and quite often this is a heavy burden they carry (even if they have a smile upon their faces).
Be wise and take a breath whenever someone tries to hurt you or bring you down in any way, forgive and forget, and if you have to, walk away. Focus your mind on yourself and on your path.
Here the word ‘salvation’ does not just mean spiritual salvation, but it is about everything related to your individual human progress. “Work out your own salvation. Do not depend on others.” ~ Buddha.
