You're only as good as your last gift to someone. What they need and desire must match what you can give or capooey, your relationship is doomed. It might be tough to hear but the sooner you accept it the better off you'll be. I didn't believe this until yesterday.
For years I've complained to my Spirit Guides. I usually say something to this effect, "People only want me around when they think I can give them something – usually advice."
Yesterday the Spirit Guides agreed and said, "YES. You only want people around when they can give you engaging conversation, quick wit and an open mind. What’s the difference?
Instead of playing the victim, choose what you will GIVE them. This way you’ll weed out the ones who want what you don’t wish to give."
Now that's what I call a bitch slap from beyond!
