Who do You Have on Your “Support Team”? by Ally Loprete

June 7th, 2012 | Posted in love+life, Mind+Body+Soul by

We are very affected by the energy of the people who surround us… especially the people who
we love most.

It’s not the easiest thing to admit, but often it is the support (or lack thereof) from our friends and
family members who make or break our success. These characters are only fragments of the
people we love most and our need to impress them is fabricated by our own insecurities and
fears. When we are working overtime to appease them, we become unclear about our own
intentions and consequently deny serving our happiest self. Our inner voice becomes silenced.
We begin following someone else’s instincts rather than our own, and consequently lose
ourselves beneath the confusion.

On the other hand having a strong support base, fans who adore you and are rooting for you, can
make a terrific impact and result in achieving your ultimate reality. I’ve seen people reboot their
entire lives by guiding the negative relationships out the door, shutting it and never looking back.
We all have complicated relationships. Its what makes our lives interesting! But if you are too
affected by Debbie Downer or Judgmental Judy, its time to leave the party and find a new one to
attend. Look for Supportive Sally, and Caring Cathy. Remind me to introduce you to Helpful
Helen and Positive Patty. These terrific ladies will be the best friends you ever had.
