"If you allow people to make more withdrawals than deposits in your life, you will be out of balance and in the negative. Know when to close the account."
Minimalism is said to be a beautiful method whereby we highlight, honor, and uplift those things that are MOST important in our lives by diminishing all of the extra "things" ... tasks, projects, engagements, events, & material goods - that rob us of our time, peace, and contentment. Consider adopting a mindset of Minimalism in your relationships as well - if there is a friend, co-worker, or other tie that is chronically dragging your energy down, injecting negativity, fostering conflict, or affecting your internal environment in an unhealthy way, it may be time to make a deposit into the relational landfill. Respectfully and graciously, of course. But remember to always clear out the old/expired/spoiling items to make room for the new/fresh/inspiring - or maybe you replace with "empty" - white space for solitude and rest.
