You don’t ever have to feel guilty about REMOVING TOXIC PEOPLE FROM YOUR LIFE. It doesn’t matter whether someone is a relative, romantic interest, childhood friend or a new aquaintance. You don’t have to make room for people who cause you pain or make you feel small. It’s one thing if a person owns up to their behavior and makes effort to change. But if a person disregards your feelings, ignore your boundaries and “continues” to treat you in a harmful way, they need to go. – DANIELLE KOEPE
Can I share something with you? Something honest? Something…real?
One of the downsides of being unapologetically myself, is that I’m a bit headstrong and extremely decisive. I’ve always had things under control with my to-do lists, planners and bullet journals. This applies to everything. This shocks people, it intimidates people and what people don’t understand, scares them and they will try everything to bring you down. But here’s the thing… “A truly strong person does not need the approval of others any more than a lion needs the approval of sheep”
In everyone’s life, there will always be friends who resist, threaten and sabotage the possibility of self-improvement. And guess what, cutting (✂) these toxic friends out from your life doesn’t mean you hate them, it simply means you respect yourself. NOT EVERYONE IS MEANT TO STAY!!!
I have personally experienced the impact of being around a negative and positive environment and “Oh” the effect is tremendous. I had “friends” who would belittle my exam anxiety, friends who would make me feel guilty over choosing studying over hanging out with them, friends who would sabotage my studying by feeding me false advice from lecturers, friends who would suddenly stop talking to me one week before an exam, every time.
Associate yourself with friends of good quality – for it is better to be alone than in bad company. Don’t let people question your values or make you prove your worth. As the Dalai Lama said: “In the practice of tolerance, one’s enemy is the best teacher” Every friendship even the negative ones, should teach us something that helps us to be better people going forward. LIVE YOUR TRUTH, AND SMILE. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.❤
I’m sharing this for everyone who needs to hear this!!!
BLESSINGS AND LOVE.😊
