Wake Up Call! – Detach from Negative People



Detach from negative people for the well-being of both of you.

A gloomy cloud of negativity hovered over my colleague throughout our several days of meetings. At first I brushed it aside but his negativity began draining my spirit and energy. When I asked him about positive or happy things he saw only the murky side of how things might be.

I could try to engage his negativity or lovingly detach from it while offering positive intentions for him.

In choosing detachment my energy and spirit began to return. Only he can choose to step beyond the gloom of negativity.

I was reminded that my spirit and life are affected by the energy and spirit of others. I expressed new appreciation for my life-giving choice. What awareness will I have today for such choices?


  • Be aware of the energy of those around you

  • Lovingly detach from negative people

  • Choose to be present to those whose spirit enlivens

Notice how you show up for life when you make life-giving choices
