Toxic people are individuals that you just do not jive with, that harm you or just drain you. They are the ones filled with drama, treat you badly but expect you to still like them or so negative they just make you feel sad all the time. Essentially they are really good at causing more headaches for you then good times. They can be old friends, new friends, family members and coworkers, lovers, husbands/wives even your own children.
I have had to cut off people in my life for good, sometimes it was a heart wrenching decision , others times it was easily done.
The thing is removing toxic people in life is necessary. There is a quote “Maturity is learning to walk away from people and situations that threaten your peace of mind, self-respect, values, morals and self worth.”
Once they are out of your life, you’ll find it easier to breathe. If they are someone like children, ensure boundaries are in place for a healthy relationship with each other for the duration of their lives.
