Get Rid of Toxic People!

People who are miserable love company because it allows them to complain about the things they actually can do something about. They just need an ear that will listen to their cries and allow them to choose suffering instead of healing. Some people just want to call upon you because they want to keep a piece of your positivity with them to make them feel normal. They have to say something negative about what you are doing so that they can feel good about themselves. I am not talking about those folks who are struggling with life situations and come to you to seek sincere advice or help because they value the relationship rather I am talking about those who just don’t want to see you succeed at whatever you are seeking to achieve.

Tips to get rid of those who are toxic:
1. Become unavailable to anyone who seems to always complain about what’s not happening in their life when you share the exciting things that have been happening in your life . It’s a TRAP! You are doing more harm to them when you make yourself available for their complaints. You are not giving them the push they really need to make anything happen you are just giving them the easy way out. If you care about them let them know that you are quite busy and that you think they have everything they need to find a solution to whatever it is they are going through and to pray and be patient. If you can stick in there try to help them come up with a plan to fix their situation then go for it! If they seem resistant then back off and let them be. Pray for them. God will send someone else who is more qualified. You and that person are not on the same page so things will start to frustrate you and then you may end up giving up what you truly want because they have drained you. You don’t need all of that negative energy!

2. Tune out the sarcasm – When people make sarcastic comments about your goals and dreams they just don’t believe in you and could care less if you become successful. In fact they would rather you not become successful so they could have something to be RIGHT about for their own misconceptions about becoming successful. When someone says something sarcastic and you find it hard to just shake it off say “Thank You” with a big darn smile and walk away telling them to have a great day! It’s one of those “kill them with kindness” methods that leaves that person looking real foolish when it’s all said and done.

3. Choose who you share your vision with- You are ultimately the only one who can see your vision clearly and will be the only one to see it manifested. Those who don’t believe in you won’t care about it. They will tell you it’s foolish and totally impossible. They will laugh at you and tell you what they think you should be doing. They say things like “IT’S NEVER GOING TO HAPPEN, YOU DON’T HAVE WHAT IT TAKES, WHAT MAKES YOU THINK SOMEBODY ELSE IS NOT DOING THE SAME THING, YOU ARE WASTING YOUR TIME, JUST FORGET ABOUT IT, YOU’RE CRAZY ETC…
All of these comments are toxic and come out of the mouth of the toxic person. TUNE THEM OUT TOTALLY!!!

4. Beware of those individuals who want you to “play small” or “dim your light”! These folks just want you to make them feel comfortable in their fears and in their insecurities. Don’t let them do this! Be you! If they cannot handle all of that light you have coming from you then they will have to move on! Why should you compromise who you truly are just to make somebody feel good with not wanting to do the same for themselves? It;s not your fault that they want to stay in stuck mode! You actually are doing them a favor by being you because it just might be enough to give them the permission they need to be their authentic self!

5. Value yourself if you want others to do the same. You teach people how to treat you by how you treat yourself!

Face Your Fears!

If you’re ever out camping or just exploring the woods in the country and you come across Mr. grizzly bear, here are two things you absolutely never want to do:

1.Run away as fast as you can

2.Climb a tree

Ok you’re probably thinking, “so what in the world should I do?”lol Well here is what you do:

1.STAND YOUR GROUND and DON’T TURN AROUND!!!

Even if it begins to chase after you.

STAND TALL AND DON’T BACK DOWN!

If you attempt to run, it will chase you,catch you, and make you the main course at meal time!

What has all of this got to do with fear, you ask?

Well it has everything to do with fear.

We all have something that we’re afraid of.

I’m not  only talking about heights or creepy crawling insects and spiders!

I’m talking about things like the fear of failure or rejection.

I’m talking about the insecurities that we all have within us.

I’m talking about having our lives governed by how others think of us.

I’m talking about our irrational fears that cause us to continuously run away from all aspects in life.

But here’s what you must come to know.

Your fears chase after you when you run, just like Mr. grizzly bear.

They hunt you down and they taunt you.

They cause you to loose sleep at night.

They won’t back down.

Here is what you do:

Since your fears are like Mr. Grizzly Bear, here is what you want to do for sure:

Stand your ground and face your fears,they will lose their power and no longer have control over you.

They will back down leaving you to wonder why you were so afraid to face them.

With Success,

Walida
