This quote is something I’m notorious for saying to all of my clients. ⁠⁠
⁠⁠
Many people think that changing their behavior is all that’s required for making sustainable changes in life. While that certainly is the most necessary component in the art of transformation, it isn’t the only element to be factored. ⁠⁠
⁠⁠
Frequently, I will see my clients make concerted efforts to shift their beliefs, actions and practices, only to return to a relationship, living situation or industry that continues to devalue their worth. It doesn’t matter how much work they’ve done on themselves, exposure to the same unhealthy environment, will only bring them back to the same place they started in. ⁠⁠
⁠⁠
The only way to experience a permanent shift, is to ensure that you have a support system that is willing to be in service of your growth. If your loved ones or business associates are not capable of meeting you there, it’s ok to temporarily distance yourself, until you can safely accept each other. This doesn’t mean you have to “cut anyone off”, but it does mean that if the relationship becomes fruitless and draining, you don’t have to resuscitate it. ⁠⁠
⁠⁠
I’m not suggesting that you give up on relationships that challenge you, but establishing firm boundaries is a demonstration of self-love and respect. Keep a distance, even if it’s only an energetic one. People can only influence you, if you let them. Preserve yourself with tools that allow you stay solid in your own being. Let me know if you need some tips on doing so!
