I have learned a lot about surrounding myself with positive and trustworthy people over the last few years. I am finally at the point where I have rooted out several negative influences and have established a great core groups of friends who encourage and support me when I need it, and of course I do the same for them as well.
For a person with anxiety drawing boundaries with people can be difficult. Many of us struggle with trying to be liked by everyone and please everyone, which is impossible. Some people are just not going to like us, and that is ok. We don’t have to be everyone’s best friend. Especially when a person drains us emotionally. I still have a difficult time with this and I am continuing to work on it.
The most important thing is to make sure you surround yourself with people who will build you up, and believe in you! 🙂
