There are people out there who will make you feel uncomfortable whenever they’re around. It’s as if they were born to humiliate you, distract you, and get in the way of your success and happiness.
And even if you’ve kicked them out of your lives, they always find their way crawling back to you.
The worst part of all these is that you allow them to come back into your life again, hoping they have changed for the better.
And each time, things get messier and messier, and ultimately, you’ve got no idea what’s really going on… You find yourself stuck in a vicious cycle…trapped in a desperate situation that harms not only your lifestyle but also your health. Without even realising it, you end up getting manipulated, hurt and devastated again and again.
But you should not keep letting toxic people rent space in your head again and again. Instead, raise the rent and kick them out for good. Yes, darling, it’s high time you achieve your highest potential by eliminating one of the major stressors in your life—toxicity.
It would be best to drive out whomever and whatever is pulling you down if you want to free yourself from unnecessary stresses and hassles. It may seem difficult initially, but it will be worth it in the end, I promise. Your own battles are already enough to handle—you don’t need someone else’s baggage as well.
Cutting people out of your life doesn’t necessarily mean you hate them. It means you respect yourself enough to walk away from anything that no longer serves you, grows you, or makes you happy. It means you are protecting your space and prioritising your mental health. ❤️🌟🧠
Life can be tough, so you need people who can bring out positivity in you, and not the other way around. After you successfully remove these people and their negativity from your life, you’ll be surprised at how healthy and happy you can become.
While getting rid of toxic people is important, getting rid of your own toxic traits is equally important. Loving yourself isn’t only about telling how awesome you are or defending your boundaries; it’s also holding yourself accountable for your actions, not blaming others for things that don’t work out the way they should and not feeling like a victim.
Yes, real self-love is the foundation of all personal development and growth because it gives you a reason to change and improve yourself for the better.
It’s the kind of love that gives you true fulfilment and peace. It’s a form of unconditional love for yourself. No matter what you do, no matter what happens to you, no matter how other people treat you, there’s a part of you that says, “I respect myself and accept myself fully and completely.” ❤️
