Those of us that are compassionate will often try to rationalize keeping these demons in our lives for fear of losing a friend. But the truth is we are poisoning ourselves. We are quite literally drinking a toxic emotional cocktail that robs us of our joy, self-respect, and happiness. And yet, just like any other addiction, we keep coming back for more.
Addie, it is advisable that you don't trust people easily in this current time. There is no doubt that people can reach at any level to gain an advantage on their behalf. Hence you should be taking the time to get to know people in the most genuine way. With all that is coming your way you must choose your friends wisely. I implore you to do this."
My whole life I have attracted needy people who do nothing more than drain my precious energy. Having this spirit of always wanting to help or take care of people led me attract strays. We are all like this in some ways, especially if we are givers. Givers by nature attract takers, so we must be super careful to make sure that we don't allow toxic people to slip in under the radar because we are so blinded by our need to help or save them.
