Let's get philosophical for a moment.
What's your weather like?
No, I don't mean the current sweltering temps across the south, or the random storm clouds of winter. I mean YOUR weather. Let's do an exercise that'll be more effective than running 3 miles.
Step 1: Write 3 words that describe how you WANT your life to be.
Step 2: Write down the 5 people you spend the most time with.
Step 3: Write down the 3 places you spend the most time.
Step 4: Next to each person and place, write ONE word that describes the connection and how it makes you feel. For example, next to "home" I'd put "comfortable" or "safe" or "stable."
Step 5: Compare the words you used to describe your current people and places in your "environment" with the list you made in "Step 1." Do they agree? Or are they opposed? Do some agree, while some oppose? When you find out which areas of your life support your path toward your desired life, you learn what's healthy for you and what isn't.
And be honest. Don't use this as an excuse to leave someone. I recall a certain radio host telling a woman to leave her husband, whom she shared 2 kids with, and whom she admitted was a stable provider and made her happy. The reason he said to leave was she complained that her husband didn't want to go back to school or open a business. She felt that his personal choice to keep the job he had, and the life they had as it was, was a problem big enough to leave him over. Now how selfish is that. And this RADIO HOST told her to do it! He said she was right to be angry since he didn't "want to advance"
What I'm warning you is: Do not use this to blast someone who keeps you content. Be honest about how they make you feel in the SIMPLEST SENSE.
See you soon Modern Traditional World.
