Learning how to deal with toxic people, or simply cutting them out of my life completely, has been one of the best ways that I have improved my life as a single mom.
We all have those people in our lives who are toxic and just suck the life right out of us! It may be our ex, our mother, or friends and co-workers… there are always those few people who are just draining to be around. Then there are the ones that push our buttons on a regular basis in order to bring us into their misery.
Today's podcast discusses several ways to deal with toxic people that were identified in this article on Entrepreneur.com – ‘12 Ways Successful People Handle Toxic People‘ written by Travis Bradberry. I happened to stumble across this article today on my Facebook feed and I simply LOVE it.
I decided to go into a bit more depth on how they related to me as a single mom. I realized several years ago that in order to be successful I needed to distance myself from those kind of people. I realized that spending time with them was effecting me negatively.
After splitting with my ex I was able to look into myself and the choices I had made in my life. One of those being the people I chose to associate with. Too many of the people in my life were toxic & it needed to change. You can't have a positive and productive life with people like that in it. They drag you down. They weigh you down.
Do you have people in your life who may be toxic? Imagine what your life could be like if you replaced them with more positive people. Would things improve? Would YOUR attitude improve? I think it just might!
