Dealing With Toxic People & Relationships by Donna Lakes

Good day, everyone.

We’ve all had those people in our lives, whether we realize it or not, who aren’t healthy for us. I want to discuss how to handle these toxic people. Truthfully, once you realize someone is toxic, you cannot take them seriously. Do not take things personally. Thankfully, there are several ways to handle these people.

Your first option is to speak up and call these individuals out on their behavior. Let them know just how it is that they make you feel when they behave in specific ways. Know that doing this is more for you and not them. If they choose not to listen and shut you out, write them a letter. Some people respond to this kind of communication better. Again, doing this is more for you than for them. At this point, they will either hear you and attempt to reflect and work on themselves and their relationship with you, or they won’t. Stand your ground, and tell them what is acceptable and what is not.

Boundaries play an essential role in any relationship; in this situation, they may need to be defined or redefined. Set clear boundaries with this person and stick to them. If you need help understanding boundaries, get a book and seek the help of a healer or counselor; help can also be found in support groups.

Suppose you find that the person is too toxic; limit your exposure to them. Sometimes, it’s even necessary to end the relationship altogether. Not only is it okay to shed poisonous people from your life, but it’s healthy for you and potentially them if they use the experience to reflect upon themselves. You can still love and accept them from a distance, though. Releasing them from your energy will be one of the most respectful and loving things you can do for yourself.

Love and blessings,
