Every single person has their own life.
Their own worries, their own bills, their own struggles and their own triumphs.
It may seem self centered. And at times, it is. But in most cases it is a matter of energy.
For most people there is only a certain amount of energy that they have in a day that they can give off.
If you're like me, you love to give.
You set slim time lines to show how much you care and how enthusiastic you are to complete the work for someone.
Whether that be your boss, a client or someone in your family.
We spend hours upon hours helping others achieve what they want.
But in the end, there are only a handful of people that will TRULY, respect and reciprocate the favors.
I can count on my hand the people who would honestly be there for me in times of need.
Well they come and go.
They're there for you temporarily. But they generally don't stand the test of time. When you are in a dark place, and really need someone.
Ask yourself; Will they be there?
The reality is, you need to learn to stand on your own two feet.
I guarantee you in the past year you've been let down by someone you thought was your friend.
Hell, it might have even happened in the last week.
and they can still be your friend.
But you need to realise one simple thing.
you are responsible.
Time to wake up and be completely honest with yourself. No-one is in this world to look after you.
or to baby sit you.
repeat these words:
"I am responsible"
Go to the bathroom and repeat it 15 times to yourself in the mirror.
"I am responsible", "I am responsible", "I am responsible"
At the end of the day, the only person we can count on 100% is ourselves.
This is the hard, but honest truth.
