~ Toxic People // Toxic relationships ~
What makes a person or a relationship toxic? How do we separate the two? Toxic people are born into this world with the sole intention of destruction. Toxic relationships are more of an incompatible bond or energy, rather than a person.
It is clear when someone is toxic. Maybe not right away, but you will begin to notice little red flags. They master the art of manipulation. They self destruct, they blame the world, and they push people away. If they lose a job, it’s the jobs fault. If they lose a friend, it’s the friends fault. There is no accountability or ownership, and without that, there is no room for self reflection and growth.
Toxic relationships can occur between anyone, whether it be friends, family or partners. This is more of a two way street. It’s not a single person doing the damage, but a negative coinciding energy between both parties. We are not all meant to bring out the best in each other, and we learn that by living through these toxic relationships. This also requires both parties to self reflect and to be mindful of what good or bad juju they may be contributing to the relationship.
There is good news and there is bad news. The bad news is that people who are toxic will either change - or they won’t. It’s common that they don’t. The good news is you have the freedom to leave any toxic relationship, whenever you desire to do so. You will begin to find peace once you do.
