Self worth and letting go of guilt

I speak often about being affectionately detached towards “energy vampires” that drain you energetically. Sometimes these energy vampires happen to be close friends, relatives and even family members. When this is the case, many people feel guilty about detaching themselves from them. They allow these vampires to perpetually drain them and bring them down. The first step towards affectionately detaching yourself from them is to have a high sense of value of yourself and your life. When you don’t value your life enough, you allow people around you to bring you down. When you allow this to happen, you are actually being very selfish. Selfish because for every joule of energy you give to an energy vampire, who will simply waste your energy, you could have invested it in someone or something that you truly love and value who could have made a bigger impact in this world. Know that it is your duty to uplift yourself, make progress on the spiritual path and uplift those around you. You’ve worked hard in your life to uplift yourself to where you are now, so work hard and wisely as well to protect the positivity within that you’ve created.
