Don’t pick up energy that’s not yours
Most of us have crabby days and an abundance of our own feelings to deal with. We don’t need to let others splash their negative energy on us. We do not need to pick it up and carry it around. If someone splashes your windshield with mud while you’re driving down the road, what do you do? You wash it off and go on your way.
Learn to tell when what you’re feeling is your emotions, and your business. Learn to tell when someone has splashed on you. You don’t have to take responsibility for what’s not yours. Our actions are maybe the only things we have any real control over. Be done with it as quickly as possible.
Thoughts are energy. Crabby thoughts and crabby emotions can be like mud. If someone splashes you, wash off your windshield, send them a blessing, and go on with your day. Can you love your toxic loved ones without slipping in their toxic? Can you detach without disconnecting?
