Something to Ponder...

I saw this on someone's blog a few days ago and thought it was pretty good advice...  It might be hard to swallow, but it's very true.

Not everyone is healthy enough to have a front row seat in our lives. There are some people in your life that need to be loved from a distance. It's amazing what you can accomplish when you let go of or at least minimize your time with draining, negative, incompatible, not-going-anywhere relationships. Observe the relationships around you. Pay attention. Which ones lift and which ones lean? Which ones encourage and which ones discourage? Which ones are on a path of growth uphill and which ones are going downhill? When you leave certain people do you feel better or feel worse? Which ones always have drama or don't really understand, know, or appreciate you? The more you seek quality, respect, growth, peace of mind, love and truth around you...the easier it will become for you to decide who ...gets to sit in the front row and who should be moved to the balcony of your life.

I've read that before.....and this year I have finally started putting it into practice. It's very difficult, but necessary, for your own sense of well being.
