Toxic People

“Set your life on fire. Seek those who fan your flames.” ~ Rumi

Ever notice how some people in your life bring your down no matter what you do? You get good grades or a pay raise and you’re told that you could’ve done better. You clean the house real good or good an awesome meal and your told that it’s not good enough. These are people who are considered toxic people are they’re not good for us. They may be family, friends, or lovers.

I learned some time ago just how toxic these people can be in my life. Throughout the years I’ve had people who’ve either torn me down or done other things in my life to hurt me, especially the ones who’ve gossiped about me. These people have wreaked havoc in my life or made me feel angry or depressed.

With all the negativity in our World today, we need to build each up more than ever. I’m not saying that we need to say nice things to everyone. Helpful criticism builds us up. By that same token, each of us needs to be less thin skinned. We need to realize that when someone give us helpful suggestions that they’re not trying to be mean. They’re trying to help us.

Thought for the day: Today let’s start building each other up instead of tearing each other down. At the same time, get rid of the people in your life who are toxic in your life. You deserve better than that.
