It’s okay to protect yourself from the people (other event planners, vendors, family, etc.) who trigger negative feelings within you. Unsubscribe. Unfollow. Unfriend. Unlike. Avoid. Make your excuses. Sometimes we just have to protect our hearts, our confidence and our feelings. If there’s someone who makes you feel like crap, don’t let them into your world.
Once you have filtered this person (or people) out of your day-to-day life, take the time to look at WHY they trigger you. We can learn a lot from feeling uncomfortable. What is the bigger message about why they trigger negative feelings? It could be simple (they lie/brag/cheat) or it could be deeper (you are jealous of their success/health/life/relationships).
Have you ever had to unfollow/unfriend or avoid another business or person to protect your confidence and self-esteem? Share your experience in the comments.
