If you don’t use it, lose it

I have often heard it said that one should always throw out unused junk.  In fact, it’s been said that if something has stood collecting dust for the past 6 months and you haven’t used it, chances are you never will.  I think I tend to agree with that statement, yet I’m far too sentimental to just chuck stuff of value away, even though I don’t always use it.  What about that ‘rainy day’?  I might just need it.

When it comes to relationships, it’s a very similar situation.  Not in the sense that if you haven’t used a friend for the past 6 months you should toss them; but rather the realization that here are two types of relationships in this word, those that are healthy, and those that are toxic.

If you find yourself surrounded by negative people who are constantly bringing you down and adding very little value to your life, or possibly even corrupting you, I strongly suggest revising your circle of influence and begin distancing yourself from them.  If you however are that negative person who is toxifying everyone else, then this should serve as a wake up call to you that it’s time to do some serious introspection and begin gravitating towards positive people who you’d allow to shape and mold you into becoming a better person!

Earlier I mentioned that I am far too sentimental to just simply discard old stuff I never use, although lately I have been working hard at chucking out the junk.  Last year I experienced a very difficult betrayal from a mentor and a very good friend.  Cutting them out of my life was the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do, but the most liberating one at that.

For me, positivity begins with a relationship with Jesus, one where I’m constantly reading scripture which encourages me to become more Christlike and far less ‘me-like’.
