We’ve been talking a lot about toxic people and relationships.
Here are the main culprits
- Intimate Relationships
What makes it extra hard is these can be hard relationships to break away from. These are our closest relationships. Because of this, it can be hard to even tell if they are toxic or not.
I had to end a 15-year friendship because it was toxic. So much damage was done over the years and it hurt to let it go, but once I ended the relationship, things improved in my life!
Family can be the most difficult because you can’t always avoid them especially if you live together.
Here’s the thing about family, you have to love them, but you don’t have to like them. Over time, it may be worth exploring to overcome issues and repair or at least tolerate the relationship.
Then there are those at work. This makes a very challenging work environment. I find it best to smile, be professional, and stay away from it. IT being any drama, negativity, or gossip. We spend so much time at work, it's the last place we need added stress.
You can be respectful and maintain your boundaries without letting someone into your personal space and energy.
When it comes to men, if he’s no good you just have to cut him off. It takes strength and support.
No matter if it’s your longtime friend, your bae, or auntie you can eliminate toxic people from your life.
