Saturday, April 26, 2014 You are reading from the book The Language of Letting Go Negativity Some people are carriers of negativity. They are storehouses of pent up anger and volatile emotions. Some remain trapped in the victim role and act in ways that further their victimization. And others are still caught in the cycle of addictive or compulsive patterns. Negative energy can have a powerful pull on us, especially if were struggling to maintain positive energy and balance. It may seem that others who exude negative energy would like to pull us into the darkness with them. We do not have to go. Without judgment, we can decide its okay to walk away, okay to protect ourselves. We cannot change other people. It does not help others for us to get off balance. We do not lead others into the Light by stepping into the darkness with them. Today, God, help me to know that I dont have to allow myself to be pulled into negativity - even around those I love. Help me set boundaries. Help me know its okay to take care of myself. From The Language of Letting Go by Melody Beattie ©1990, Hazelden Foundation. All rights reserved.
