Love is expressed in many different ways. Many times, especially when it comes to relationships, we only acknowledge love in a romantic sense. Love is present anytime we’ve developed a close connection with someone we encounter. It’s beautiful in every form; however, we should always be careful of the people we allow into that realm of ourselves; a realm is so intricately designed that the slightest crack in it, even if it happens subconsciously, is enough to let unwanted souls in.
The relationships we enter, whether they be in the work place, with our friends, or a significant other should always promote growth. Keeping people in your vicinity that not only allow you to progress to new levels within yourself, but also individuals who work as mirrors and reflect who you are, even on days you are unable to see that on your own, will only work in your benefit. It will create a positive environment of inspiration, love, and elevation. If the people you are surrounded by do the opposite, therefore causing you to question loyalty and the overall good of humanity, it is now time to reevaluate and rebuild that web of people. It’s crucial to personal development.
The saying goes that you are most like the 5 people you spend most of your time with. Are you hanging out with people who have equal ambition and a great work ethic or are you associating with people who are goal-less and lazy? Are they honest? Take the time to assess the people in your circle and ultimately the souls you are attached to. This is the first step in building and maintaining meaningful relationships in your life.
