Face it, there will always be days where your demons are up to drag you into the pit and bring out the zombie in you. And during those days, though you try to be in control especially of how you feel, you know you’re drawn into the Bermuda Triangle of emotional chaos and even psychological masochism. Thanks to your optimism and archaic belief that since you’ve been nice you deserve good karma.
Life’s not what you expect it to be as wonderful as you’re trying to imagine it. You’ve been good and nice and accommodating… and have become the most amiable version of yourself. And you’d expect everyone to be the same!?
Well you have to stop right there… and maybe, start crawling out of your cocoon before the same chrysalis became your own death chamber depriving you of the air you needed badly.
Now, take a look on how people suck the life in you, even without them knowing it. The book Spirit Healing (I always look forward to read at BookShack Café) lists down three negative energies to watch out, and of course, avoid:
> Leftover Vibrations – energies “that still hang out due to undesirable people, activities or unfriendly ghosts.” Sometimes these are feelings which are actually remnants of your past aches that should have dried up along with the tears on your pillow many sleepless night ago. Hoarding negative sentiments on people is allowing them to consume terabytes in your emotional virtual memory. There should be no recycle bin, in the first place, to traumatic encounters with people (that includes exes – ex bf/gf, ex friend, etc.)
> Energy Vampires – “usually needy family members or friends who are quite aware of their ‘talent’ from draining the life energy from other people. After you have become in contact with them, they feel better and you feel worse! Spouses, teenagers, needy friends and sickly relatives are usually the unwitting culprits, as they have no ill intent or awareness of the process.” Do we need to elaborate further? Nuff said.
> Drainers – “are able to draw your energy because you feel the need to take care of them – either because of guilt, a need for self-punishment, or desire to keep the person around you.” Clinging on to something that exhausts the vibe in you just because you have to prove your worth is sickening. The same with people who have become part of your life because they wanted you to be around when they’re in dire need of your presence and ditch you off whenever they like to.
Life’s short to exhaust the life in you to anything and anyone which does not make you feel alive!
