So I have heard a lot of people say this, and it is worth repeating.
There are people in your life who nourish you, give you energy, and feed your growth, they support you. And the are people who suck your energy, or almost “suck” the life right out of you, if you will.
So people who are “suckers” are critical, crabby, pessimistic, naysayer’s, etc. Start thinking about people in your life who are suckers. And more importantly, which ones you can spend less time with.
Also start looking at who in your life is a supporter. And start spending more time with them.
