"Precaution is better than cure."
~ Thomas Coke ~
My energy has the power to affect other people, and other people's energy has the power to affect me. Sometimes it's a loving exchange. Sometimes it's uncomfortable. And sometimes it's downright toxic. It's an interesting exercise to observe what emotional stuff those we encounter are spilling into the world, and to protect ourselves if it's less than beneficial for the levity of our souls.
I limit my time in the company of those who weigh me down.
