Rid yourself of toxic people

Rid yourself of toxic people

01 Jan 2022 by Ted Escobedo   3 min read

As we ring in the new year and focus on our resolutions, you may consider who you are bringing with you into 2022 and re-examine their place in your life. Toxic relationships can come in all forms like an ex-partner, friend, co-worker or even a family member.

They’re easily recognizable as those people who distract you from a positive mindset or stand in the way of positive habits. They’re often making you feel guilty or ashamed for having an interest in something they don’t, causing confrontations or making you feel like you’re putting in a lot of effort without receiving any support or happiness in return.

One of the most important things to remember when removing toxic people from your life is that ghosting them is not ok. It only stands to hurt both you and them. Begin by setting boundaries within the relationship, communicate your intentions clearly to the toxic person and be firm about enforcing them. If you need to delete their number or block them on social media, do it.

Then, you need to go to work on your own mind and highlight all of the positivity you stand to gain by cutting them out of your life. Once they’re out of your life, there’s no turning back. Try to cut communication once and for all and allow yourself to move on to productive and positive relationships.
