It’s hard to cut toxic people off but that doesn’t mean it’s not something you need to do. If someone is hurting you or bringing you down, they shouldn’t be allowed to stick around and keep doing that.
Toxic people come in all shapes and sizes. They can be friends, people you hardly know, and even family. They could have been in your life since the day you were born or only be someone you’ve met recently. That’s just how it goes.
When you find yourself dealing with someone toxic you need to know that you do not owe them anything, period. Sure, if they’re your mother or father they may try to act as if they’re entitled to control you just because they brought you into this world but if you’re an adult, they can’t force you into sticking around. If moving on is what’s best for you, do it.
Toxic people tend to target people who do not deserve the treatment they get. They find the kindest and most caring people to pull apart and it’s wrong, it’s so wrong. While not all toxic people know they are toxic, you shouldn’t let any of them remain in your life without change. Once they prove to you that they’re not willing to make a difference in their lives and yours cutting them off is imperative.
You deserve respect and kindness. The things you give to others they should be willing to give back and if not, then all you’re doing by keeping them around is wasting your time. These people will destroy you if you allow them to and you shouldn’t allow them to. You are more powerful than you realize and once you find that power, you can do so much.
While you might be afraid because you’ve been stuck dealing with this person for so long, you can do it. You can break free and let yourself grow. You need to make changes in your life and you can’t do that with toxic people trying to control you. The more in charge you become of your present and your future the more empowered you will find yourself.
Please take these words to heart. You are not the one in the wrong here. You’re supposed to be living your life not someone else’s. This world was made for you to explore, go do that.
It is going to be hard and it is going to suck for a long while but it will be worth it in the end. You can do this and you deserve to be happy. Stop letting other people tell you what to do and who to be. Find yourself and really get back out there in any way you see fit. Life is too short to let someone else live theirs through you.
