My very beloved mother sent me this in a chain mail and i thought i might share it with ya’ll as it made alot of sense to me. Hopefully it will benefit you in some way.
Life is a theater. Invite your audience carefully. Not everyone is healthy and mature enough to have a front row seat in our lives. There are some people in your life that need to be loved from a distance. It’s amazing what you can accomplish when you let go, or at least minimize your time with draining, negative, incompatible,
Observe the relationships around you. Pay attention to: Which ones lift, which ones lean on you, which ones drain u and which ones tear you down; Which ones encourage and which ones discourage: Which ones are on a path of growth uphill and which ones are going downhill. When you leave certain people, do you feel better or worse? Which ones always have drama or don’t really understand, know and appreciate you and the gift that lies within you? When you seek growth, peace of mind, love and truth, the easier it will become for you to decide who gets to sit in the FRONT ROW and who should be moved to the balcony of your life.
You cannot change people around you but you can change the people you are around. Pray and work toward wisdom and choose wisely the people who sit in the front row of your life.
