So far we have talked about loving yourself more and accepting yourself as you are. We've discussed how truly being yourself will attract your true friends, your tribe. Now lets take a look at your tribe... How do you know you've found your tribe? What makes them your true friends?
My mother always used to say, "you are the company you keep, so choose your friends well" as I was growing up, always concerned about who my friends were and why I chose them. It's true that we pick up the qualities and traits of the people we surround ourselves with most. We start to become a little more like them and they become a little more like us, until we meet (not always in the middle). Do you like the person you are transforming into? Do you like the person you become when you are with your friends? How do they make you feel?
True friends are those who amplify you. They encourage you to be you, they are your own personal cheer squad. When you are around them it feels like a rush because they lift you up higher till you can touch the moon. You absorb their intoxicating energy, it fills you up until it radiates through you, then it shines out like a glorious sun. And then they absorb your energy and the cycle repeats... and it's infectious!
This is your tribe, welcome home!
