Spotting The Energy Suckers In Our Lives
Let’s face it. Whether it’s a friend or family member, most of us have someone in our life who zaps us of energy.
Let’s face it. Whether it’s a friend or family member, most of us have someone in our life who zaps us of energy. We leave them or hang up the phone feeling EXHAUSTED and emotionally drained. I call them ENERGY SUCKERS. I do my best to LIMIT my time with them or ELIMINATE THEM FROM MY LIFE, if possible. After all, we SUCK UP the energy that surrounds us–so why not make that positive, optimistic, and joyful? You know that saying…”Birds of a feather flock together?” It’s true. So flock with the upbeat crowd. Success attracts Success. Happy attracts Happy. Positive energy attracts positive energy….you get the drill.
So, how do you spot an energy sucker?
*They talk the whole time and you barely get a word in. It’s all about her and the conversation does not go both ways.
*They don’t respect your time. You say you have to get off the phone or leave and they tell you 4 more stories. They have not developed healthy boundaries.
*They gossip a lot and try to drag you into it and have you dish out information.
*You avoid telling them positive things going on in your life because you’re afraid they’ll be jealous.
