Wisdom on Wednesday: Toxic Relationships

Whether it is a job, a friend, family, place you live etc, when a relationship becomes toxic it is time to move on.

No one likes change, moving, breaking up, getting a new job, etc.  But, if it is wearing you out, bringing you down, affecting you in negative ways, then it is time to move on.

Did you know people will stay at a dead-end job, or job that is stressing them out because it is familiar?  Or in a bad relationship because they don’t want to be alone or offend someone.  It is always good to put others before you and be humble in your ways.  But when the situation is threatening your well being then you have to let it go.

I have learned this the hard way through the years.  Waiting until I am completely worn out, or irritated beyond repair.  I have had to teach myself to be mindful of the things that affect me in negative ways, and try to avoid those things.  This is never easy and takes a lot of mental attention.  Nothing is perfect and learning to be flexible is certainly a good trait to have.  But you also should be aware of your own self and the things that affect you in negative ways.

You only live once.  Letting toxic relationships tear you down will only make life miserable.
