You are always in relationship with another, whether its your family, your colleague or yourself. Relationships bring out the best and worst in us. When you’re in a relationship, it’s easy to get overwhelmed with instinctive “toxic” emotions that begin to negatively affect your physical and emotional well-being.
You can overcome toxic relationships by:
1.Freeing yourself from past hurts.
2 Give yourself permission to release the hurt. anger and betrayal.
2 Forgive the person who hurt or disappointed you.
3.Pray or mediate so that you can focus on you and connect with God.
4. Take care of your mind, body and soul through healthy life choices.
One of my favorite quotes on forgiveness:
“Forgiveness is surrendering my right to hurt you for hurting me.”-Dr. Archibald Hart
