Toxic People, a slow poison we can’t stop drinking

We all have them.  Those people who have overstayed their welcome in our lives, who have not contributed much in the way of positivity and yet we insist on keeping them around.  In doing so we create a toxic cocktail which we all too willing drink. I've always wondered why we insist upon keeping these people in our lives?  I used to have quite a few people like this who brought me nothing but ... Read the Post

Those of us that are compassionate will often try to rationalize keeping these demons in our lives for fear of losing a friend.  But the truth is we are poisoning ourselves.  We are quite literally drinking a toxic emotional cocktail that robs us of our joy, self-respect, and happiness.  And yet, just like any other addiction, we keep coming back for more.

Better off alone than in bad company

I have always been attracted to bad boys.  I would guess most of us are at some point or another but I had the disease to the detriment of my own well being. I'm eighteen years old and hanging out with this guy *Ted.  By all accounts Ted seemed to have it all (at least by teenage standards).  Nice apartment, car, and friends who adored him.  He seemed nice, and I really had a crush on him.  So as ...

"Honey.  It's time to let this one go.  He's not going to change and he is in for a lifetime of trouble.  You can't save him and the truth be told, you're going to end up dead or in jail if you keep messing with this guy.  It's better to be alone than in bad company."

You try to get out of bed, but can’t.  Your head feels ... Read the Post

You were out on a date, or out with a friend. By all accounts, it seemed as though you had a good night.  You felt a bit tired, but you figured it must be due to the demands placed on you at work.  The next morning, you open your eyes and immediately sense something is wrong.  You feel as though someone hit you in the head with a baseball bat. You try to get out of bed, but can’t.  Your head feels heavy, not quite a headache, it's a feeling that drops you back onto your pillow for some much-needed rest.  This my dear friends, is an energy hangover, and it is not fun.

Be Careful Who You Trust

My whole life I have attracted needy people who do nothing more than drain my precious energy.  Having this spirit of always wanting to help or take care of people led me attract strays. We are all like this in some ways, especially if we are givers.  Givers by nature attract takers, so we must be super careful to make sure that we don't allow toxic people to slip in under the radar because we are ...

We are all like this in some ways, especially if we are givers.  Givers by nature attract takers, so we must be super careful to make sure that we don't allow toxic people to slip in under the radar because we are so blinded by our need to help or save them.
