People who routinely vent about problems without looking for solutions. We all have a bad day from time to time and need to vent, but some people have bad days all the time and never stop venting.
People who insist on the reasons why something can’t be done without offering insights into how it can be done. These people are used to being bricks in someone else’s building, not architects..
People who, at their core, do not believe in who you are, what you’re doing, and who are only comfortable with you when you show up as a lesser version of yourself. You may have started as friends, lovers, and family, but loyalty to skeptics is a betrayal of that next greatest version of yourself.
Withdraw from discussions with chronic complainers.
Ignore outsider opinions that do not conform to your inner vision.
And review, if not end, your relationships with those who would have you be someone other than who you want to be for them to give you love and support.
