Are Some of Your Friends Peeing in Your Pool?
by Millennial Kate
Everyone knows that one person who doesn’t find time to get out of the pool and go to the bathroom because they are having too much fun. What happens to the pool?
Everyone in it ends up swimming in piss. Don’t let people piss in your pool.
If there are negative people surrounding you in your life, get as far away from them as you can. Allowing negative people into our life brings us down with them.
Who Are These Pool Pissers?
These are usually the friends who always put us down, or the friends who never find time to be there for us when we need them most, or talk about themselves and never ask how we are doing. They do these things to make themselves feel better and all it does is make us feel like we got ran over by a bus.
We find ourselves keeping these people in our lives because we have known them since we were kids, or they are a part of the family and we feel obligated to accept them.
Well, I am here to tell you that if you keep allowing others to piss in your pool, you won’t have anywhere else to swim. Not only will you not have anywhere else to swim, but you will start to loose the positive relationships you do have in your life because the negativity will become a part of you.
Don’t feel obligated to keep a relationship going with someone just because you have known them for life. We are all in a state of constant change and are not expected to be the same as we were 20 years ago.
Believe me, this concept is not an easy one
After I had my daughter I lost a lot of friends because they didn’t seem to understand I was not the same person I was post mom, and I definitely did not have the free time to go out and party with them anymore. Instead of accepting this, they became really negative and hostile and I had to deal with it, until I decided enough was enough. I slowly started separating myself from those friends and although they didn’t understand why, it didn’t matter because I was breaking free.
Purge the Negativity
It feels extremely refreshing to get all of that negativity out of your life. It opens up time to surround yourself with the people who care. Oddly enough, getting rid of all of that negativity starts to attract positive people to you and new, healthy relationships can be formed. There will always be negative people around you whether it’s in the workplace, a family get together or the grocery store. But if we surround ourselves with positive people, the minimal confrontations of negativity we do have won’t have much of an affect on us. Attract positive people, people who get out of the pool to use the bathroom, people who help keep your pool clean and clear of piss.
