Be aware of who is dragging you down. There are people in your life right now that want nothing but the worst for you. Do you know who those people are? It’s hard to figure out exactly who those people are, especially when they’re trying to remain hidden. God will give you signs to direct you to whomever it is that isn’t supposed to be in your life.
There may be some things being said about you and you don’t know who to believe. Go to the source of those words and figure out how certain people react to those words and maybe you’ll be able to figure out who the blame should be placed on. It’s not easy to bring out the snakes lying in the grass. Sometimes it’s best to wait around until they reveal themselves.
Talk less and listen more. That’s how you get a better idea of who’s saying what, instead of talking and becoming a part of the problem. The less you talk, the more time you have to listen. The more you listen, the more you know who’s for you and against you.
