“I spent today analysing my relationships with people to see if they’re using me for personal gain. Being selfish with your time and energy is NECESSARY if you want to be happy. Imagine the sheer power you would radiate if you focused on yourself and your own craft instead of fixing everyone else around you, people who can’t be bothered to fix themselves and constantly drain you of your energy.
You have to be the fiercest protector of your energy and your space. It’s all that you have. You don’t have time to worry about what other people might think of you for setting boundaries and cutting people out. Just do it. YES you will he called intimidating, and told that your standards are ‘too high’ - and often in times of boredom be tempted to lower them (i.e. re-downloading Tinder or hitting up your ex/shit mates) - but just know that if this means compromising your standards, you’re going to regret it every single time. You have standards and boundaries for a reason. You deserve better and you know it - so demand it.”
