Why We Stay With BAD Company!

Why do we spend time with people who make us miserable?! Why do we continue surrounding ourselves with people who bring out the worst in us?! 🤔

One reason is it can feel better to be with some sort of company than with none at all. Even if our company treats us horribly, Fear deduces it’s safer to be with them and feel sad than to be completely alone and feel sad. 😔

To also let go of bad company requires us stepping out into unknown territory, and the fear of unknown can be even more paralyzing than the company you’re with. It’s why there’s the saying: “Better the devil you know than the devil you don’t.” 👍

🌟 Our fear to let go of something can outweigh the fear of holding onto it. And whatever we fear less of we will go toward. 🌟

It’s in our evolution as human beings. We are social beings. It benefitted our ancestors’ survival to form bonds and groups. It was better to be a part of a tribe than to be alone in the wilderness to fend for oneself. 👍

But here’s the Good News: in our modern civilization, we have more opportunities than ever to seek out people and peer groups which better serve us! 😄

📍 Surround yourself with people who empower you, not put you down.

📍 Spend time with others you wish to emulate and become.

📍 Give yourself permission to have MORE than one peer group.
