When Your Friends Abandon You, Find New Ones

I've been getting word from people reading my blog that their friends are starting to avoid them. "Why is this happening all of a sudden?" I've been asked. The reason is simple really. When you were in a negative mindset you were attracting and being drawn to other negative people. Now that you are changing you are no longer like them so naturally they don't feel comfortable being around you. The way to remedy this is by doing things that make you happy, going places that bring you joy and expecting to find new people who are of a positive mindset. You probably already know some positive people but because you were negative they did not want to hang around you. Think of all of the people in your life who are happy and full of joy. Reach out to them and let them see the new person that you have become. You'll find that they will notice a change in you without you even having to tell them. They will welcome you in their circle with open arms because positive people understand that you can never have too many friends.

I know that this is a transition in your life right now and you may even be tempted to revert back to your old ways just to relate to your former friends. Do yourself a favor and be the leader that I know you are. Let your friends rise to your level and if they don't well just understand that their rejection is not about you but about them. This is where they are in their lives and you must accept and respect that.

I hope that you are proud of yourself for stepping up and choosing to grow as a person. Do something nice for yourself as a reward for your budding maturity and new found happiness. Give thanks to God for giving you wisdom and strength to make the right choices for the life that He has given you. God is so good and He has given us a marvelous life.
