Who said dealing with toxic people was easy? Those individuals who just figured they aren’t in my circle, they are not my friends. Well, what if these so-called toxic people are your family? How do you separate the judgment and ridicule of those people? Can you say this is my life and live it without the loved one included?. What if it was your mom who did not agree with the lifestyle choices you make, are you willing to sacrifice your lifestyle to have a mom in your life? Easier said than done right? These are the things we have to consider when we choose to deal with toxic people. Some people such as older family members are just so accustomed to how things were in his or her time. Well truth be told, things aren’t much different now it’s more known. People have put other people down so much until it has played on others ability to self-care. Saying that, we have to stop allowing other people views on life to affect us is so much harder than it is. We first have to be able to accept the things that we don’t like and like about our self. Many times the people that are toxic has issues of his or her own and cannot self identify. To them, it’s easier just to intimidate others and call out their flaws rather than to acknowledge you have some skeletons in your closet you have to recognize. Sad but very real, we cannot continue to put others down thinking we can build ourselves up. So to deal with toxic people especially when its a loved one we have to distance ourselves from those people and practice self-care regularly. Never forget about self, too many people out there in this world already have.
