Hello everyone, Uncle Tuck here with another rant.
This one is about communication. Recently I had to lighten my phone’s contact list by a few dozen or so. It was long overdue, but you know how sometimes you really try to see the best in people. When you’re better off without them.
I’m sure you guys have had people who never reach out first… that is unless they NEED you for something. Like they never text you to check in on you, although you’ve done that many times for them. They never seem to remember any special dates in your life. But feels as though you should remember all theirs.
They’re also the ones who like to problem compare. You know try to one-up whatever is going on in your life. Like their issues are so much more worthy of discussion.
Well, no more. You must protect your energy at all costs. Even if it means cutting someone off whom you’d thought had your best interest at heart. You must believe their actions over their words. Some will say the right things and have you holding on to a toxic friendship. I don’t even think friendship is the word I should use. Perhaps I should say ‘situational arrangement’.
We all deserve to have people in our circle who are committed to giving the same level of energy you give to them. And when I really sit back and look at certain people. I see they were never committed on the same level of friendship for me as I had for them.
But it’s all gravy. No enemies here. I just fall back and remove them from the circle. No need of putting out negative energy on someone. Don’t block your blessings.
Keep it moving and appreciate those who appreciate you. Love those who love you. And most of all fuck with those who fuck with you.
