Toxic People are Lame!
It's true. They're like vampires and they suck the life out of us. They use us, abuse us and can't understand what our problem is.
Identifying Toxic People
It's important to identify these people and avoid them or confront them with their abusive and intolerable behavior. So, there's a short list of ways you can identify them:
- Toxic people are focused on their needs and not yours
- They attack others with a level of meanness that's hard to imagine
- Pretense of being victimized
- They love to play the victim in every circumstance, it's part of the ploy
- They twist the truth
- Whatever you've said, it's worse or different than the way you said it...
- Just when you need them, they aren't there
I could go on, but you get the picture. They're the worst kind of people to have around and the odd thing is, I bet you're one of them!!
Gotcha! If you're reading this, hopefully you realize that I am a hypnotist and I deal with the subconscious mind. We are (or can be) at war with ourselves and our relationship with that inner child can be toxic.
- How many times have you spoken down to yourself?
- How many times have you insulted yourself?
- How many times have you known your actions were destructive and did them anyway?
- How many times have you been a "victim" of your own circumstances and choices?
- How many times have you blamed your problems on other things or even people?
You may be thinking that I am full of it, but hear me out. That inner voice is a part of you. You use it daily and depending on how you use it, you can experience a wonderful life or a miserable one. Our negative self-talk is that toxic part of our own personality. It's terrible to think of just how mean we can be to ourselves, especially when we mess up.
If you've ever felt this way, you're normal. If not, I am willing to bet you're not being honest with yourself and...that's toxic.
So, how does one change this awful thought process? It starts with the way we choose to forgive ourselves. That's a hard one but it's doable. Sometimes we just have to realize that we human and we mess up. We mess up diets, we mess up relationships, we mess up our houses, we mess up jobs, and on and on.
Let it go!
You can do it, I promise. And when you can allow yourself to live and be happy, you've made a valuable change in your life.
Don't worry about the small stuff...
It's ALL small stuff! Truly, we tend to focus on all the little things and turn them into negatives. One thing I know about the human mind is that we can only focus on one thing at a time. If we're focused on being negative, then that becomes our paradigm and everything becomes negative.
The reality is that we have so much to be happy about.
Choose to focus on one good thing. Hold that thought and then add something else to it. It's called "counting your blessings". Maybe you've heard of it. Thing is, it works! Keep adding things to your list. Now start adding your good traits to that list. Pick just one thing.
Now add another.
You can because you will
Proverbs 23:7 states: "As a man (or woman) thinketh in his heart, so is he". Keep your heart and your mind focused on the good things you have to offer; to others and to yourself.
Start allowing yourself to live.
Take it one thought at a time. I have faith in you.
