Hi Gina, I just wanted to comment on your journal entry this morning because it struck a cord with me! I have been dealing with a client/ friend situation turned ugly for over a year now. This woman actually set my husband and I up and she and her husband have been huge fans of my competing…leading her to do a show as well. So we were really close….until I got married. She turned and became almost jealous/envious, saying rude things, negative energy, and I train her 3 times a week. Well she took 3 months off recently due to injury and it was such a relief to be set free from that energy. Now she’s back to training and I feel the negativity creeping back. I love what you said “less is more with words” I just have such a hard time with confrontation. I think I need to cut it completely but it’s such a hard situation. There are no specific things that have happened recently, it’s just a feeling or energy she gives off. And it’s like poison. I’m guessing your advice would be to get the negativity out of my life, right?! Well thank you for that post because somehow, I need to muster up the simple words and just tell her, tastefully of course!
Have you ever had anything like this happen where someone was making you feel like this?! If you have any other opinion I would love to hear it! Thanks so much for your time and always thoughtful words!~Jess
Great question Jess and thank you for asking! Jess, life is too short, as hard as it is, it is best to remove any negative energy that is in your way. Even if you think that you can overlook or let things go, that negative energy is doing nothing for you and subconsciously weighing you down. You have no idea how you will feel when you let it go. I totally hear you and have had similar situations. It is hard because you hate telling people “no” or letting them go but the truth is, it is only holding you back. You have no idea the freeing feeling of staying true to yourself and following your heart. Your gut is always right! Follow your instinct and do what you need to do to remove that negativity from your life. I hear you, sometimes, there is not a particular reason and no explanation it is simply a feeling you have! Those feelings are stronger than a particular incident!!! Energy is everything!! Don’t feel like you need to explain yourself… remember less is more. Having your prep underway, is a perfect way to just tell her that you need to focus on you right now and hate to have to let her go but you want to commit yourself 110% to your training and prep so are going to have to stop training…
Keep me posted Jess and follow your heart! I am excited for you to feel the freedom of removing that negativity!! You can do it… No need to explain remember, less is more!!
