Everyone has a purpose in your life.
Some people’s purpose in your life is not necessarily in your best interest. They are dead weight, providing no value. Eliminate them. Harsh? Perhaps. But that’s the thing about the truth. Sometimes harsh, always fair. Eliminating the toxic people (I call them “blessing blockers”) will open up room for free flowing favor!
Emotionally toxic people can ravage us from the inside out. Yet, what exactly defines a toxic person depends on who you talk to. In my life, I’ve found toxic people are those who:
- take and never give in return
- constantly complain
- put others down to make themselves feel better
- make others feel guilty
- can only criticize
- have no joy or laughter
What all toxic people have in common is that they always leave us powerless, vulnerable, and depleted. Feeling this way for long periods of time is devastating to our physical and emotional health. Toxic people don’t help us, they harm us. So how do you clean up the poison? Simple.
If You Allow Unhealthy Relationships To Stay in Your Life, You are a Volunteer, NOT a Victim.
STOP THE INSANITY! (Where is Susan Powter when you need her?) And guess what, only you can CHOOSE to stop it. On your time, on your terms! And when you are READY, it won’t be hard. The quickest way out of victim mode? RESPONSIBILITY! Accept that you are allowing what you’re allowing. You’re not forced to have this person/situation in your life. And until you GET that, you will continue to go on volunteering for the drama, unhealth and misery.
One final thought? Are you the person some one else needs to remove from their life? Just a little food for thought . But hopefully of not the bad apple type.
