This is hella long but a worthy read. The first step to a life free of drama and filled with positive and motivating people is to let go of those that don’t deserve a spot in your front row. I know from personal experience that there are certain people, even family, that are just not positive influences on your well being and in your life. Sometimes you just need to allow those people to grow and eventually allow them a front row seat back into your life.
“Front row is like being in the center of your life. Be careful who or whom you invite to attend the show or exclusive episodes of your life. Better yet whom you give a reoccurring roleTake inventory of who is in your front row…………….
Life is like a theater, so invite your audiences carefully. Not everyone is holy enough and healthy enough to have a FRONT ROW seat in our lives. There are some people in your life that need to be loved from a distance. It’s amazing what you can accomplish when you let go, or at least minimize your time with draining, negative, incompatible, not-going-anywhere relationships, friendships, fellowships, and even family!!!
Observe the relationships around you. Pay attention to:
Which ones lift and which ones lean?
Which ones encourage and which ones discourage?
Which ones are on a path of growth uphill and which ones are just going downhill or just standing still???
When you leave certain people, do you feel better or feel worse?
Which ones always have drama or don’t really understand, know, and appreciate you and the gift that lies within you?
The more you seek God and the things of God, the more you seek quality, the more you seek not just the hand of God but the face of God, the more you seek things that are honorable, the more you seek growth, peace of mind, love and truth around you, the easier it will become for you to decide who gets to sit in the FRONT ROW and who should be moved to the BALCONY of your life.
You cannot change the people around you…but you can change the people you are around! Ask God for wisdom and discernment and choose wisely the people who sit in the FRONT ROW of your life.
Remember that FRONT ROW seats are for special and deserving people and those who sit in Your FRONT ROW should be chosen carefully.
Everyone Can’t Be in Your FRONT ROW!!! “~Unknown
