Sometimes we need to remove toxic, negative people from our lives and sometimes... we are that person. *AWKWARDDDDDDDDDDD*
Time to get real!!!! Ughh--oops, I mean YAY. YAY! I MEANT YAYYYYYYYY. Ok? I'm not negative.... Geez. Alright, maybe a bit. FINEEEE, the truth is I've been a very negative nancy lately. Such a negative nancy, in fact, that people simply don't want to be around me.
I DON'T BLAME THEM.
Truth is, I wouldn’t want to be around myself either. No one wants to be around a girl who is insecure about herself, her relationship, and makes it very obvious to everyone in the room. *starts whistling* No one wants to be around someone who is always unhappy or complaining. At least I know I don't!!! + I DEFINITELY don't want to be that person either.
At first, that realization produced dread and anxiety in myself. I’ve now accepted that this is completely ok to realize, in order to move on and become the best version of myself.
What I'm currently practicing is switching my thoughts to all the beauty around me (THERE IS SO MUCH, GUYS) whenever negativity comes creeping in. Additionally, I'm learning the amazing saving grace of walking away to cool down & take care of myself when I need to. This makes sure I'm creating a safe space for those around me (I don't project my emotions and feelings onto them) and it helps me create a safe space for myself.
My partner Isaac actually made a video about this a few years back and it's helpful. I was having a really tough time yesterday, and as I went for a cool down walk (*sigh*....) I played it, and it helped me relax, release anxiety and feel better.
I am taking my happiness and self-development seriously. There is no other choice! Are you with meeeee? Let me know your thoughts, experiences, & questions down below.
Love you all <3
