Why do you hang out with them? Why do you follow them? Are you lonely even when you are with them? If you are lonely even when you are with your friends, then they are not your true friends. It is time to move forward. It is time to start making yourself happy. It is time to start loving yourself even more. Do not wait for your friends to make you happy. You can make yourself happy. And do not wait for them to give you love. You are love. You have love within you. Give love to yourself. Because if you are lonely even when you are with your friends, it means there is nothing there.
“Do not wait for your friends to make you happy. You can make yourself happy.”
Life is more than us. Life is bigger than us. You are here to live your life, to enjoy your life, to make yourself happy. If anyone is making you unhappy, you can walk away. It is okay to walk away from an unhealthy relationship. Do not feel bad about it. It is what it is. If you can make it better, make it better. But if you cannot make it better, walk away. If you do not feel comfortable when you are with someone, then that person is the wrong person for you.
But before you judge your friends, you must first judge yourself. Maybe you need to change how you treat people. Maybe you need to change how you see the world. Maybe you need to change how you see yourself. Do not just call people your friends. You must first find out if you are going to be comfortable with them. If not, do not start it. You must know why you want them around you. You must know what you want for yourself. For your life, for your career, it is important to know the people around you. It removes fear.
If you want to be happy, if you want to grow your life, you do not need negative people around you. You need positive people around you. Because the purpose of having friends is to connect with something bigger than ourselves.
