It’s true that negative people are part of our reality.
Here’s a powerful question for you – How many times do you remind yourself that you don’t need to be with people who bring you down?
We all know this, yet many of us don’t know that we can set boundaries and actually change this reality.
Yearly I do a serious job of spring cleaning for clothes, the house, and relationships that are toxic. You heard me right. We all have those people who constantly complain yet never change anything in their life. Life is too short to be around negative people who rain on our or their parade.
Start thinking about how you can and need to spend more time with those who make you laugh, smile, think, learn, etc. We all have our own definition of toxic people. Remember this the next time you speak to a friend who complains about everything. I’m not saying to end the relationship all the time. Implement a plan to be with those who support you and bring joy to your life.
