One of the best skills you can develop is discernment about how you feel around certain people. This will impact your energy dramatically.
Allow yourself to chose close friendships with people who you feel good around and let go of the obligatory relationships that drain you.
After the fiasco I just encountered with this last “relationship” (that’s what he called it) Ha! I have to learn that not everything and everyone is going to serve in a capacity of my highest good. Let it go (me shaking myself)
With laughter, love, discernment and gratitude.
