Who you engage and how you engage them is of consequence in your moment to moment experience. Every interaction is an energy exchange and rarely are they neutral.
We are undeniably entangled and to maintain and enhance your reserves depends on your level of conscious engagement. That is not to say that each interaction must be one of profound meaning, but it is to consistently account for the replenishing and depletion of your energy.
Each party can leave fully charged, completely drained or one can feed off the other. Your mindfulness will dictate the outcome.
