Gordon MacDonald once wrote about VDP’s or Very Draining People. These are the people who drain our energy rather than refueling us. Into every life at least one VDP must wander. But we can choose to limit our exposure or interaction with them.
We can also choose to surround ourselves with more positive people. I love to be around believers and dreamers. These are the people who provide a mental pick-me-up when I need it.
Which are you?
