Great question, and yes…that does happen.

Great question, and yes…that does happen. Often. I think the key is to always try to build our capacity, while minimizing demands that aren’t necessary (if we look at stress as what happens when demand exceeds capacity). In this case, minimizing how much time we spend with energy drainers, and preparing ourselves the best we can to be present and grounded so we don’t take on their bad juju is helpful…plus trying to spend more time with those who do energize us, inspire us, more often.
