Quit Watering Weeds

On average, I get 10-15 calls/texts from spam, robocalls & time wasters. I block them as soon as I see the missed call/text. I don’t want them in my phone or taking up space in my life. Shout out to the person that invented “block”, the best thing ever invented. That “block” prevents triggers, allows me not to waste my time, stops the toxic from entering my life. It’s a guard, a shield that protects me.

Now I’m using the same process and applying a “virtual block” for real life. I’ve wasted enough time allowing people to cross my boundaries, take up my time and energy. I’ve poured into many that have not poured back into me. I’ve made investments in many with zero returns. I’ve opened the door to toxic relationships. If I won’t allow it on my phone then I should not allow it in my life.

As I’ve told my tribe many times, there’s going to be some that don’t like the new me but I’m ok with that because I haven’t liked the old me for a long time. I’m done watering weeds. I’m hitting “block” and pouring into people and things that pour back into me.
