By taking the question ‘Who drains our energy?‘ from various perspectives we could ponder, list and wonder why we continue with certain relationships or situations.
Possibly it is valid to think of energy in the following ways: time energy, emotional energy, confidence energy, desire to achieve energy, and enjoyment or enthusiasm energy.
Knowing who drains our energy in each area goes a long way to being in a position to explore present and future options.
And understanding who drains our energy in these categories helps us to decide whether the benefits obtained by being around the energy drainers outweigh the cost of losing our daily verve.
Naturally, for social, commercial or even political reasons we at times have to accept a compromise, although that need not be our automatic mode of behaviour.
As ever, we are free to choose many aspects of life, including who drains our energy.
If you’d like to explore this issue further, perhaps in the form of a complimentary coaching session, please let me know. For now, thanks for connecting here and reading this ‘Who drains our energy?‘ post today.
