Learn to recognize the #toxic people in your life. They may be good people deep down but they are not good for you. Let go of them.
They are people who call you a friend and use you as an emotional crutch. They stew in the soup of self-pity and self-inflicted loneliness and try to pull you down to a place of darkness. They encourage you to dig up the past youve already buried and make you feel guilty for having friends who bring you light.
You do not owe anyone your strength attention or constant presence by neglecting your priorities. You do not owe anyone your tales of lonely battles. Cut off such negative influences. You do not owe them a warning or an explanation. Dont feel ashamed of getting rid of #dysfunctional alliances with #toxicpeople. Youre not responsible for their darkness.
Your person is someone who makes you feel comfortable even in silence. Hold on to relationships that transcend geography. Prioritise people with whom you dont need to make an effort. Embrace every opportunity to grab happiness in the middle of all that you have to deal with in your own life.
Stand up for your peace. Choose You. #thoughtoftheday #choosehappiness #chooselight #chooseyou #justodthings Image courtesy //in.pinterest.com/pin/189291990565394325/ #chooseyou
