Remember – your peers aren’t necessarily as dedicated to their growth as you are to yours.

Certainly, everyone grows at a different rate. But the difference between someone who is trying to keep pace and someone who’s phoning it in should become obvious in short order.

And while you don’t need to have any “Look, I don’t see you growing, and I need to let you go” type conversations, staying in the same spot and hoping for the best could be detrimental to your growth. If you aren’t expanding, you’re shrinking!

In thinking about letting go of what is holding you back, it’s easy to let the guilt get the best of you. “Well, they are good people…” (By the way, I’ve heard people say that about literal sociopaths.)

I agree, though, that there is good in everyone. I don’t know that there is such a thing as “good” people and “bad” people. There are just people, and sometimes they do things we agree with and sometimes they do things that appall us.

Either way, you don’t want to surround yourself with “crabs in a bucket” people, as their only hope is they can keep you at their level for as long as possible. And they will do crazy things to keep you there too.

So, the question is – is the Universe urging you to let go of something right now?

Are you being asked to surrender a relationship, a job, a commitment, a habit, or something else?

If so, are you willing to let go and make space for new things to come into your life?

If you value your growth, you will exercise compassion on yourself and others and let go of what is no longer serving you.
