Often times we find ourselves rushing into friendships or relationships that don’t benefit us in any way. In fact, they seem to have been a waste of time and energy, they may even play a hand at ruining your life.
In my newest video I ask that you start asking yourself, “Who am I spending time with?” “What do they stand for?” And most importantly, “Do they have anything to lose?”
If you’re spending time with someone that has nothing to lose, often you will lose. Through my own experiences I find that these relationships have hurt me, wronged me, and even stolen from me. I look back, and I realize the time wasted on these friendships I can no longer get back.
So what do we do when we come into contact with what seems to be “Fast Friends,” or “Fast Infatuations”? Take a step back, and start to ask yourself some questions.
In this video I explain the ways in which you can take a step back and start to ask yourself some much needed questions before you jump into these harmful relationships. Remember where you met them and who you met them through. Think about your responsibilities, your lifestyle, and what is most important in your life. Begin to analyze this person, and ask yourself if they seem to have your best interest at heart, or if they are playing at you with nothing to lose.
Taking lessons from my father, I’ve learned that people who have nothing to lose don’t care about your lifestyle, your responsibility, or about you losing any ounce of your life; your time, your money, your responsibilities towards your future. It’s time to take a step back and think before getting involved.
Life, happiness, and family is important. Be sure to surround yourself with others who have, and follow up on, their responsibilities. You don’t need someone ruining your life and everything you’ve built and created.
