“You can’t change someone who doesn’t see an issue in their actions.” – Unknown
If a person disregards your feelings, ignores your boundaries, and continues to treat you in a harmful way, they need to go away from your life. It is for your own good, for your own mental peace, for how long will you hold onto someone, thinking they would understand you or be happy seeing you grow as a person. Not everyone you meet in your life will be happy to see you excel, FACT of life!
Toxic People are the ones, instilled with two unique characteristics, Jealousy, and Judgement. People who are jealous of you are highly toxic, the reason being; they have so much self-insufficiency within them, that when they see someone else doing things which makes them self-sufficient, they cannot digest. Over the time they have built up so much of self-hatred, (which they do not realize) that they see bad in every other person around them. From jealousy comes judgement, validation, criticism. They feel that everyone around them is awful and lacking in some or the other way.
We all come across such people in our whole life, no matter in what profession we are or which place we belong to. It is part of our culture as a whole. They have this immense power to make your life living hell just by their negative vibes around you.
You know it’s time to cut down such people from your life when you resort to an unhealthy coping mechanism and you see your self-esteem dwindling. You see yourself going a few steps back from where you traveled this far, you realize you have been unhappy in their presence and you find it very difficult to make them understand yourself and lose your temper.
So identify those toxic elements in your life and learn to detach from them, only to attach yourself to higher aspirations in life.
“Dear Self: Stop re-opening your doors for toxic people, then calling it “seeking closure”. Certain things don’t work out in life.. and that’s ok” – Reyna Biddy
