There are too many of us who have allowed ourselves to be connected to people, places and things that have not brought us any value. Without us realizing it, we can be attracting the very things we hate. These negative people, places and things may have only pushed us down. Perhaps you have not felt like you have been lifted up but drained because of this connection. Let’s take a moment to examine this moment together, “What are you connected to?”
There are things, we are attracting to ourselves. It’s as if there is a magnet that we hold and it is attracting these things to us, perhaps without us not even realizing it. How about taking this time to recognize it and acknowledge it for what it is and what is happening? In order for change to occur, we must first acknowledge the truth; the reality of what is actual happening. When we see it for what it is, then we can make a choice to cut off these things that have been hindrances and pushed us down in the wrong direction.
There is so much for each of us and not one of us has to just settle. It may be difficult to change these things immediately, but it is not impossible. The faster you begin the process, the faster you will find yourself moving in the right direction. How about admitting it even now and decide to do what you must, to begin the cutting off process?
Now, there is another side to what we are connected to. Perhaps, it has been people, places and things that have been an incredible blessing and a place of security for us. But perhaps we have held on to this so tightly that we have been unwilling to move any further. Maybe we cannot see it any other way. Perhaps, God has been prompting you and you are too fearful to move on. It is possible that it has become a very comfortable place for you. Why not take this moment today to acknowledge your inability to move past what you have held too tightly and even though it has been real good, you have made it a crutch. The moment you see that you can move past this, you have made steps of faith and moved into the next level that God has planned for you. It is not that you have to cut off your blessings, but it is vital to allow them to become spring boards and sounding boards and no longer just a place of crutches for you!
In either of these cases, there is something God is trying to encourage us about and prompting us to recognize. Take a moment to examine where you are and pray. Also, confide in someone you can trust with moral character and allow their honesty to confirm where you are and pray with you. I appreciate hearing from my readers, so let me know your thoughts and share this blog with others. Are there things in your life that can be consider crutches? Are you quick to move forward or are you feeling held back. Let me hear your story.

great read and time for a little reflection to focus on things that matters and on people who brings out the best of us and not leads us to negativity or wrong doings
Awesome article! I am connected ro those people who bring me happiness and also to my blog that I love a lot
I really liked this one Natalie. I used to let go of people who were harmful for me really easy. However, now, when there are some people who have become a huge part of my life it becomes harder to let go of these relationships. I know I must do it though.
Thank you for sharing such an insightful post!
Such a thought-provoking post! We definitely need to reevaluate our lives every now and then to see what things or people have become our emotional crutches. For the longest time ever, I was so attached to people that lack of attention made me feel rejected.Allowing anyone to have that power over you is a real sign that you have a void that can only be filled by God.
It’s good to disconnect from people places and things that are negative and don’t bring you joy. Obviously you can’t pick your family but if you need to distance yourself that’s okay.
I enjoyed this post, I realised where I needed to have boundaries and noticed people and things that only brought bad feelings. They do say that you are the average of the 5 closest to you, so I like to surround myself with nice ones 🙂
It’s important not to get stuck at the same place, but move forwards, wherever it may be…
I enjoyed reading this post. I can relate to the attachment bond. We sold our house and moved out to the country, and I still find it difficult at times to adjust. We are certainly are creatures of habit. Thanks for sharing.!
loved this post! i think it is so important to reflect on the surrounding energies we allow in our lives. sometimes, we need to clean house and let go of things and people who no longer serve us. thank you for this.
Thank you so much for taking a moment to read and share your comments. Yes, letting go of these people, places and things will bring a sense of release and freedom. 🤗
Reflecting on what matters is a wonderful way to center your life. Thank you for sharing!
