On Friday evening Evelina and I will be at the beach house and I’ll be sitting at the ocean staring and contemplating life; it is truly one of my favorite places to spend time. It is as if the ocean is a natural purger of all the junk that accumulates in my mind when I am inland.
I heard a theory that humans are drawn to the ocean because of evolution and our origins related to water. It makes a little sense to me considering the fact that we are composed of mostly H2O and my life feels more complete when I am on the sea.
At any rate, I have been thinking about friends lately and how so few people carefully construct their friend group in order to surround themselves with supportive, positive and caring people. I see many people who allow anyone in their lives regardless of their mindset and I don’t agree with letting just anyone in the inner circle.
I believe we all must be incredibly protective of anyone we allow close to us. Our confidants MUST be supportive, challenging, loving in the truest sense of the word, wise, etc. When we lower our standards we run the risk of allowing in manipulators, narcissists, liars and worse!
In short, protect your inner circle and surround yourself with people who DESERVE your friendship and love. Happy Tuesday!
