Wednesday Wisdom – Absence

give the gift of your absence

This has been a hard lesson for me to learn lately. I am a giving person by nature. Most people reciprocate and appreciate, and the world keeps on turning. But there are some people who just can’t grasp the whole give-and-take concept. And these are the people you need to watch out for.

I recently learned the hard way that my time, energy, and efforts were absolutely not being appreciated, so I drew the line in the sand and told myself and the Universe, this is not okay; I will no longer expend energy on this person. This person, for whatever reason, cannot appreciate me and know my value, and so this is as far as our relationship goes; the surface. I know my own worth, I know my value, and I know what I bring to the table. If someone can’t appreciate that, they stay on the surface.

My time and energy are reserved for those worthy of it. So while it can be hard, the best thing you can do for yourself is to leave behind those that just can’t/won’t, for whatever reason, appreciate your presence.
