In 2021, Say Goodbye To Toxic Humans

In 2021, Say Goodbye To Toxic Humans

If 2020 taught you anything, it’s that life is fragile. You have no idea what’s awaiting you tomorrow, so you should try your hardest to make the most out of today.

In order to feel lighter and more carefree as you walk into 2021, the best thing you can do is say goodbye to the toxic people who are making your world more miserable than it needs to be. You deserve to surround yourself with people who bring out the best in you, who cause you to smile, who encourage you and push you toward your dreams.

In 2021, say goodbye to the people who are unable to apologize, to compromise, and to self-reflect. The people who genuinely believe they’re incapable of making a mistake and refuse to take responsibility for their actions. Walk away from anyone who would rather take countless steps backward than work on themselves and grow into a wiser, more well-rounded human. 

In 2021, say goodbye to the people who accuse you of overreacting whenever you share your thoughts with them. The people who say you’re too sensitive as if it’s a bad thing. Surround yourself with people who appreciate how hard you feel and how much you care. Ditch the people who believe your big heart is a weakness rather than a strength.

In 2021, say goodbye to the people who discount your emotions. The people who act like you don’t have a right to be sad because they have it worse and that you don’t have a right to be proud of yourself because they have it better. Ditch the people who turn every little thing into a competition and are skilled at making you feel bad about things that were originally bringing you happiness.

In 2021, say goodbye to the people who take advantage of your soft heart. The people who only text when they need a favor or want to vent about the problems in their life. The people who are never there when you need them because they only come around when it’s convenient for them.

In 2021, say goodbye to the people who pressure you into doing whatever they believe is best. The people who force you into seeing whatever movie they want and into drinking at the bars they choose. Say goodbye to the people who ignore your opinion and aren’t able to understand the word no, people who refuse to take your thoughts into consideration because they only care about themselves.

In 2021, say goodbye to the people who give you backhanded compliments and nasty looks. The people who make you feel small and inferior. The people who are only happy when they’re bringing someone else down. Walk away from the ‘friends’ and family who aren’t able to congratulate you on your successes because they would rather see you miserable. Because their jealousy is louder than their love for you.

In 2021, say goodbye to toxic humans because you deserve to be surrounded by sunlight. You deserve to step out of the darkness once and for all. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
