There are three types of people in your life
Those who love you
Those you think like you
Those who don’t like you.
The expected classification is to spend 80% of your time with the first set of people while you deploy just about 20% with the other set of people.
The challenge, however, is that we precipitously group everyone in the first box, not wait for them to earn access and vulnerability. We even call some friends because we grew up in the same neighborhood, attended the same primary school, and have been around each other since childhood. Friendship is deeper than geography and longevity.
Friendship is like business. It should be undertaken after due diligence because not everyone in your circle is in your corner.
Betrayal, offence and loss of peace are experienced when we spend 80% of our emotional energy with souls in the 2nd and 3rd box and just 20% with humans who desire us.
Increase your joy and manage your expectations by infusing yourself with humans who enjoy the news of your success.
