Rely On Those Around You to Fuel Your Happiness
It’s safe to say that we all know just how damaging a toxic relationship can be – it infects and impedes every aspect of our lives. Whether it’s a romantic relationship, a close friendship, a work relationship, or a familial relationship, toxicity can be dangerous. It spreads and goes into hiding, only to rear its ugly head at an inopportune moment. Our relationships have a major impact on our daily happiness, in addition to our level of empowerment. Relationships can make us feel powerful or powerless, depending on their value.
In this short article, we’re going to talk about how you can rely on those around you and the people you choose to associate with to fuel your happiness all throughout your life.
Family & Friends Are Key
We cannot overstate just how important our friends and families are in all areas of our life. They’re our support structure, our tribe – they build us up when we’re down, they support us when we’re struggling, and they celebrate with us when we achieve our goals. Sometimes, we may even take them for granted, but that’s only normal.
The most important thing to remember is that you have the power to choose who you associate with. You can choose your friends and you can get close to family members who you feel a genuine connection with, even those outside of a blood line. Some family members might just be “family” to you, but there are other family members who may also be genuine friends whom you can trust – and those are the people who matter most.
Finding The Right Circles
Whether it be at work, at school, or at home, finding the right circles is absolutely critical. You want to surround yourself with people who build you up, not tear you down – and this is true for all areas in your life. For instance, your career can certainly take a toll on your overall level of happiness – especially when you’re struggling to get along with colleagues and co-workers.
In these cases, it’s always a good idea to rely on your familial relationships and your friendships outside of work. In other words – leave work at work, and come home to the people who really make a difference in your life.
And in the event that there’s maybe one or two co-workers whom you genuinely respect and enjoy being around, then surround yourself with them and immerse yourself in their circles. It’s always good to have people who can support you wherever you are in life – whether it be at work, at school, or at home. Once you’ve successfully closed all three circles, you can begin to leverage your strongest relationships to fuel your happiness.
