For some reason, a lot of people in this world like to play mind games with those in their lives. These mind games are done so that those carrying them out can get the upper hand in regards to those around them and honestly, they’re exhausting to take part in.
Life is too short to waste all of your time feeding into these games and letting other people make your decisions for you. Honestly, the more these people try to push these games on us the more disconnected we become from them. They aren’t doing anything but making themselves look bad in the long-run and ruining the relationships they have with the people in their lives.
I refuse to give people who do nothing but play games with the minds and hearts of others my time or efforts. They do not deserve my energy and realistically, they don’t deserve your energy either. They are digging themselves into holes that we don’t have to be a part of.
The more we allow those who wish to do nothing more than control us a place in our lives the more behind we will become. We will lose parts of ourselves we perhaps weren’t even aware of and in the long-run, it’s just a waste of our time. You shouldn’t allow someone to beat you down just because you don’t know how to get rid of them or you don’t want to hurt their feelings.
When someone shows you that they’re only taking part in your life because they wish to gain something through being near you, cutting ties is your best option. Don’t let them win and be aware of the limits that need to be placed in regard to their presence in your life. You don’t owe them anything and just because they bring up the past or try to guilt-trip you doesn’t mean diddly squat.
You are the person who gets to choose who is in your life and who is not. If someone is hurting you or bringing you down, there is nothing wrong with leaving them in the past. You don’t have to explain and you don’t need to say any kind of peace to get things over with. Simply move on and take with you whatever you see fit.
Tomorrow is not promised and we need to ensure we’re putting our efforts and energies in places where they will do good in this world. Stop worrying so much about the things other people think or say, your life is yours alone and you are the only person who can define yourself. We all face ups and downs and you’re not as broken as you might think you are.
Life goes on whether you feed into these games or not, do what’s best for you and stop letting people who refuse to care for you hold power in your world. Be there for yourself and the people who actually love you. Things will go over a lot smoother if you quit letting these games get into your head and start living for yourself instead.
