Goal for the Day: Slay the Emotional Vampires

It’s a new year, so, let’s start it out with our mental and emotional energy fully charged. We all know “emotional vampires.” They’re the people who are always complaining, always bitter, never satisfied, always looking for a fight and ready to be insulted by the most innocent things. These are the people who feed on your energy and suck the joy right out of you. Sometimes, it seems as if they’re unstoppable, and unbeatable.

But, they aren’t. The new year has given you a powerful weapon—the power of choice. The best way to slay an emotional vampire is to ignore it. You don’t have to be rude or dismissive, but when the vampire exposes its fangs, walk away. Your life, your energy, your thoughts are all within your control. Don’t let anyone bleed you dry.
