Quotes to Live By- Surround yourself with the doers, believers and dreamers

Posted by Lauren Eyer

“Surround yourself with the dreamers and the doers, the believers and thinkers, but most of all, surround yourself with those who see the greatness within you, even when you don’t see it yourself.”
-Edmund Lee

Of all the lessons I have learned, this is one of the most important. We truly are a product of the people we associate with most often. If you are around people who are constantly doubting or putting you down, or are just very negative all the time it will rub off on you. It may be hard to distance yourself from them, but it really is necessary to limit your time with negative people or people who don't support you. There are plenty of other people out there who will support you and your dreams anyway, so you don't need those who will bring you down.
Be conscious of who you spend your time with and look to those people who you see their eyes light up when you share your thoughts and dreams. I have been very fortunate to have found a beautiful group of friends and family who have been supportive and believe in me. And I'd like to think I have been the same to them. I have also had to let go of some toxic past relationships and it wasn't easy because of the history that was there, but over time it truly feels like a weight is lifted. 
The people you hang around should lift you up. You should feel energized to be around them. And it is ok to say goodbye to the ones who don't make you feel that way. People come into and out of our lives for a reason, and for whatever reason sometimes we need to let certain relationships go and that's ok.
