I try to spend a vast majority of my time trying to figure out how to be nice to other people. I always think I am not doing enough.
Loving someone won’t suddenly make them healthy. Or good for you.
“You’re the most anxious person I have ever dated.”
You don’t owe them your time, your respect, or an answer to their text.
They have “don’t know what they got ’til it’s gone syndrome”.
They remember your failures and your losses very well but they never celebrate your accomplishments with you. They find more joy in your setbacks than your comebacks.
The truth is she doesn’t do boring well. She doesn’t do average.
Most toxic people leave behind a trail of drama because negativity fuels their identity. It’s an exhausting way to live. And if you hang around long enough, they will draw you in.
Toxic people are manipulative, codependent, and reliant on you to deal with the overwhelming negativity in their lives. They are not just people with problems – they are people who don’t take responsibility for those problems.
Taking a step away from a toxic person is self protection. We can love this person from a distance while taking our power back.
