In this world, we are so used to normalizing toxic behavior that we’ve begun overlooking it much more often than we should. Instead of cutting ties with those who hurt us we give them chance after chance.

Stop giving those who want to bring you down power in your life. You are the only person who should be making your decisions and this life is yours to live. If you keep allowing toxic people to take away your options, you’re going to end up quite miserable once all is said and done.

Eventually, you will find someone who treats you well and that someone will make you finally realize that you’ve been putting up with the wrong things for far too long. Instead of building proper connections you’ve been allowing negative people to drain you over and over again. 

If you’re always feeling out of it and like your life is not something you’re in control of you should consider the company that you keep. Who is making things worse on you and is there anyone who is taking advantage of your kindness? Sure, getting these people out of your life might not be easy but it will help you take back your own personal power. 

Below I am going to go over some things we should all be working to avoid and keep ourselves protected from. If people are doing these things to us or before us to others, we should be able to tell right off the bat that they’re not good news. Limiting your exposure to those who want to do nothing more than break you down will help you, in the end, find the person who will build you back up and show you what a real connection is.

7 Things You Should Never Let Other People Do To You:

1. Never let someone make you feel ashamed of your past.

Don’t let people make you feel ashamed of the person you used to be. You have grown and are a better version of yourself now because of the things you’ve been through. You should be proud of where you’ve come from and how far you’ve managed to get in life.

2. Never let someone trick you into giving up something you’re passionate about.

Stop letting people trick you into giving up the things you love the most. Just because they don’t understand your passions doesn’t mean you should let them die out. If you like doing something and it isn’t hurting anyone – go for it.

3. Never let someone force you to do something you don’t want to do.

If you don’t want to do something, don’t do it. You do not have to do things that you don’t want to do. In this life, there are very few things we actually have to do.

4. Never let someone hold you back from your goals or dreams.

Do not let the people around you hold you back from where you want to be. If someone is forcing you to give up your goals or your dreams they don’t actually care about you like they say they do. You deserve to get where you want to be and you need to keep pushing forth.

5. Never let someone tell you who to be.

You are who you want to be and you can grow into whomever you plan to be in the end. Don’t let someone tell you who to be or force you to fit into a box. This life is yours to live, they have their own to-do with what they wish, period.

6. Never let someone break you down over the mistakes you’ve made.

Stop letting people berate you over the things you have done. If you have apologized and moved on then that is all that matters. We are all human, and we all make mistakes, none of us are perfect.

7. Never let someone lie to you over and over again.

If someone is lying to you repeatedly they do not deserve to be in your life. Do not give power to those who wish to do you harm. Once you catch them several times, pushing them out the door is your best option.
