Who do you allow into your inner circle?

A few weeks ago, I wrote a post about our happiness levels being the average of how happy our top few friends were. This is so interesting to me, and it really brought home the fact that we are all so sensitive to the energy around us. (You can read more about this here.)

Because we are like sponges and tend to take on other people's moods and emotions, I think it's a good idea to be careful about who we let into our inner circle.
By surrounding ourselves with friends and loved ones who give us energy instead of take it away, we fill ourselves up by being around them instead of feeling depleted.

By surrounding ourselves with friends and loved ones who are positive and grateful, we raise our own vibration to meet theirs - and being more positive and more grateful is such a wonderful way to experience life!

By surrounding ourselves with friends and loved ones who are filled with happiness and pure love, we become happier and love flows more easily.


I know that it's not always easy to weed out your friends and family who don't feed your soul. I know that ties run deep, and it can be hard to loosen the grip that they have on you.

But I also know that your happiness is worth it. You deserve to be happy and positive and radiant and grateful.

And if you are surrounding yourself with anyone who isn't on this same path, it is only making it that much harder for you to be on yours.

Spend some time today thinking about who is in your inner circle.
Do they feed you or drain you?
And then begin the process of only allowing into your circle those who support you and feed your soul.

You are special, and your inner circle is a sacred space.
Be conscious about who you allow in.
And then celebrate being with those who celebrate you, who are happy, who support you, and who radiate love.
