1. Ground yourself, and firm up your boundaries, so you don’t get drawn into their negativity. Otherwise they’ll drain all your energy.
2. Protect yourself. Imagine there’s a bubble separating you from them so they can’t get close and infect you with their mood.
Love is selfless.
If your significant other keeps doing things over and over that you told them you are not comfortable with, they aren’t loving you. So please, either change things in your relationship or leave. If they don’t hold themselves back for you, they aren’t your prince or princess that you’ve been waiting for your whole life.
Never forget that you are allowed to question authority if they are doing something you are not comfortable with or do not understand.
It’s called critical thinking. Don’t be afraid to question the world. Just do it respectfully.
Why do I love runners?
Because the fastest of you stay after you finish to cheer on the rest of us.
Because you encourage the person who just started.
Because you treat this solitary event as a team sport where I am the star athlete.
Runners support each other like no other.
