If you take energy as an indicator of whether you should pursue something, you are likely to build up a great life. Come to think of it, everything revolves around energy.
Energy from your tribe
“I define connection as the energy that exists between people when they feel seen, heard, and valued; when they can give and receive without judgment; and when they derive sustenance and strength from the relationship.” Brené Brown
As a human being you need social interactions, and the kind which is meaningful to you. It is about being social and connected. It is about your tribe.
Some people give you energy. Some don’t. No rocket science. No judgement. (We cannot all be the same, thankfully).
What is important is to learn to recognise and feel the energy you get, or not, from the people you spend time with, whether personally or professionally.
For instance, if you are having your dream job, but don’t feel connected with the people you are working with, you are likely to feel drained by the end of the day. Because the context is not right.
