The Spirit Guides tell us that people can drain our energy because they are so needy. Sometimes, that neediness translates into them saying nasty things to us. When they are nasty and put us down, they feel powerful. We feel abused and drained.
The Spirit Guides tell us that the best people to be around are the people that make us feel peaceful and calm. They help to inspire us to do different things. We think our world is better because we have met them.
We have the free will to choose the people around us. It is an act of healing to let go of the people who drain us. It is a change of life to refuse to let others hold us down. Our destiny is to be happy and loving and compassionate.
