I found in my life that it is very important to surround myself with people who lift me up and help me to feel good about myself. I can't pretend that it has been easy to allow certain connections to leave my life but I also understand that part of becoming more positive and enlightened means "out with the old and in with the new". This is not to say that I am flippant and just 'bin' any relationship that may challenge, annoy or upset me. Some relationships are designed to help me grow and make me stronger therefore, they are not there to be 'moved on' but rather 'learnt from'. Learning the difference between the two can be really helpful. If there are people in your life that put you down and drag you down it is worth looking at how relationships of this nature can be learnt from. In my experience we only attract more of these relationships until we learn the lessons that they bring us. When I have learnt the lessons, I no longer need relationships of that kind in our life and somehow, no longer attract them either.
Criticism breaks down the inner spirit. Praise builds it up. Praise yourself as much as you can. Tell yourself how well you are doing with every little thing.
