What do we do with Toxic People in our Lives?

1- Don’t try to change them. It’s exhausting and just in case you need a reminder. You can’t change other people, you can only change yourself.

2- If this toxic person is not family, you should really re-consider if they need to be in your life at all. Sometimes relationships need space.

3- If it’s family, and you choose to keep them in your life, you don’t have to entertain their madness. You can refrain from entertaining their toxicity by switching the topic, cutting conversations short, making phone calls short and sweet, turning any negative conversation into a positive one. Eventually, they WILL get the hint, and even if they are slow to catch on – the time they can spend “dumping on you” will be so minimal… that their misery will not have much company, and they will need to turn to someone else to fuel their monster.

Toxic people in your life will hold you back from the life you were meant to live. Life is short, don’t let someone else puppeteer your future.
