'Your Life Is a Theater'


Invite Your Audience Carefully

Not everyone is healthy enough to have a front row seat in our lives.
There are some people in your life that need to be loved from a DISTANCE.

It's amazing what you can accomplish when you let go of, or at least minimize your time with, draining, negative, incompatible, not-going-anywhere relationships/friendships.

Observe the relationships around you. Pay attention.

Which ones lift and which ones lean?
Which ones encourage and which ones discourage?
Which ones are on a path of growth uphill and which ones are going downhill?
When you leave certain people do you feel better or feel worse?
Which ones always have drama or don't really understand, know or appreciate you?

The more we seek quality, respect, growth, peace of mind, love and truth around us...the easier it will become for us to decide who gets to sit in the front row and who should be moved to the balcony of Our Life.

"If you cannot change the people around you, CHANGE the people you are around."

Remember that the people we hang with will have an impact on both our lives and our income. And so we must be careful to choose the people we hang out with, as well as the information with which we feed our minds.

We should not share our dreams with negative people, Nor feed our dreams with negative thoughts. It's our choice and our life... choose wisely.

It's up to us who and what we let in it...

I saw the above and thought about my current relationships. Are they all worth having?

ur post reminds me of a conversation i had with one of my best friends on new year's day this year..she was like there's only 2sorts of pple-those who add value to ur life in some way,and those who don't..and she semad that she ws goin to cut out certain relationships(as part of her new year's resolution) coz really,they weren't meaningful in the first place..i dint think much of it then,esp since i dont like to box pple into categories, but as the days and months go,i agree with her even more..i am learning that i only have so much emotional why should i clutter it with pple who are not adding value to my life?but am the sort of person who wants to get to know what i am trying to do is FOCUS on those relationships that worth it,while not getting myself into some sort of clique such that i end up shutting out other pple..

In my theatre of Life I know I can never please everyone.
Not even Jesus did, and that's why they crucified Him. There will always be people cheering whereas others are jeering.

However, as Kari alluded, It is prudent for us not to be unequally yoked for this can cause regression rather than progression in ourlives.

At the same time however, the challenge for christians is to still love those folk that are a pain in the neck. It is hard to do so but it is possible.

of theatres and relationships......
yeaaah. those realtionships yu are having are worth everything. donn just tramp friends coz yu feel they are not of very much help. one day yu are gonna need them but it will be too late coz yu will have already dumped them and then yu will realise they are the only ones who cud be in a position to help yu. just hold in there coz people come into our lives fore a reason....which reason may not yet have come.

I hope a majority of your r/ships are worth having.

"If you cannot change the people around you, CHANGE the people you are around."

I usually refer to this as weeding out the potheads. There's a lot you can do for a friend but when it seems like the scales are tilting on your side then it's time to let go.
Thanks for sharing this.
