Toxic people have negative impacts on our lives, they can cause us unnecessary stress, maybe without even realising that they’re doing so. The bottom line is, with a toxic person in your life, it can really take a toll on your mental health which isn’t good for anybody. Sometimes you don’t even realise how toxic these people may be until you they are no longer a part of your life anymore.
What is a toxic person? A toxic person can be the type of person that puts you down for no reason, doesn’t have respect for you or someone who makes you feel bad for something that’s not your fault. Not all toxic people are necessarily bad people as they could very well have good intentions, but they aren’t the right people for us.
Getting rid of these toxic people is important if you can do so, that is. It doesn’t matter whether this toxic person is a family member whose related through blood or a friend, a toxic person is still a toxic person no matter what the relation is to you. No toxic person is good for you, your mental health and your general wellbeing. Nobody deserves to be treated with disrespect and talked down to for no apparent reason whatsoever. It doesn’t matter if somebody is family or not, they have no right to make you feel like crap. If you feel like you need to get rid of this person from your life because it’s the best thing for yourself, then go ahead if it’s possible for you.
I recently had to get rid of a toxic person in my life who so happened to be a family member of mine because I wasn’t putting up with the way that they treated me, which is what initially inspired me to write this post. It wasn’t the easiest thing to do, I must admit, and I did cry. I’m not the kind of person to cut people from my life easily either, you really have to tip me over the edge before I’ve had enough. I like to give people chances to change, but sooner or later you get fed up of taking someone’s unnecessary crap that’s it’s better to cut them out of your life, no matter how difficult it may be. Now that I’ve cut said toxic family member from my life I feel like a weight has been lifted from shoulders – I can 100% say that I feel happier now.
When you cut a toxic person from your life it can be easy to feel guilty for it, but at the end of the day, it’s your life and your wellbeing that’s at risk. If you believe that it’s the right thing to do, then that’s completely your decision and no one else’s. At the end of the day, it’s your life and you need to do what’s best for yourself, regardless of what other people think. Screw what other people think of your decision, they aren’t in your shoes.
Have you ever had to get rid of a toxic person before? How did you feel?
