Lose weight fast; it’s possible; drop your toxic friends. This weight loss doesn’t require any exercise. No low carb, paleo, cabbage soup or any other diet plan. This weight loss can occur overnight, and it requires one thing. You need to drop your toxic friends. The weight that he/she places on you. Losing weight has never been so easy.
The one thing you need to do is get rid of the friend you know is toxic. This is the friend that doesn’t clap when you’re successful. The friend that calls only to vomit negativity upon yourself. They hate their boss, and the kids are rude, the partner is leaving. The madness can go on and one forever; get rid of this friend.
No friendship should require you to be a sounding board for a constant release of toxicity. I’m not referring to a friend that is having a bad day. I’m referring to the friend that is pure evil. Nobody likes them, and your the only one that tolerates them primarily due to pity. This friend for many years has nothing good to say to you or about their life. Please get rid of them
Toxic friends benefit more from having us as friends than we do from having them as friends. They use our kindness as an opportunity for them to continue to leech all life out of us. They take and take and give nothing back to the friendship. If you have a friend that is very carrying and giving, thinks of you and displays support towards your goals for life, it’s very easy to understand days in which this friend can be damaging. Toxic friends have no off day. They are miserable 24/7; they don’t stop on their quest for chaos and inflictors of bad vibes.
I had a friend that started out to be an excellent person; they appeared to be caring, and at the time, we both were experiencing oppositions in our lives. We created a friendship based on our venting sessions. As time passed, she moved to a different area, and so did I. Both of our situations changed when we moved. I found that she was still complaining about everything. I gave her the benefit of the doubt for one year and ignored her complaining
These kinds of friendships tend to sneak up on people because the signs are often subtle. But generally, a toxic friendship “emotionally harms you, rather than helping you,” says clinical psychologist Andrea Bonior, Ph.D., author of The Friendship Fix: The Complete Guide to Choosing, Losing, and Keeping Up With Your Friends and the “Baggage Check” column.https://www.womenshealthmag.com/relationships/a25939904/signs-of-toxic-friendships/
One year passed and she was still complaining, two years pass and she was still complaining. I found this was becoming too much. My body would ache after speaking with her and I found I began to get resentful whenever we spoke. I started to become angry. I didnt understand what was causing this anger but I felt it was best to examine why I was feeling this way
I notice my behaviour and emotions before we spoke and how I felt after we talked, and I found after I talked to her, I was a wreck. I decided to avoid her calls and invites for two weeks and notice I had no issues. I decided to speak to her about the negative discussion to bring awareness to how I was feeling after our conversations.
She revolted the thought that her talk was toxic and chalked it up to me being soft. I decided it’s best to end our friendship since she couldn’t see nor acknowledge my feedback. This is something toxic people do very well; see themselves as the victim and don’t understand nor take the other person into consideration
“Friendships can be protective and rewarding, nurturing and uplifting. If a friend has the opposite impact, we may want to reconsider our relationship and reconfigure that person’s role in our lives. It doesn’t mean you need to end the friendship altogether—maybe you still see them for social gatherings—but they shouldn’t be who you turn to for emotional support,” explains Dr. Jessica Nicolosi, New York-based clinical psychologist and owner of Prana Wellness.https://www.oprahmag.com/life/relationships-love/a25919349/signs-of-toxic-friendship/
Time is so short you can not afford to have people in your life that bring you down. You are the sum of people you hang around; why do you want to be around someone that is so harmful to your well being. We all have to take responsibility for our lives, and if someone gets up every day and choose to be miserable, then this person is delusional to their power in life. Surrounding ourselves with individuals that hands over their power for happiness to people or things can and will impact us when they vent their frustration in our direction
If you feel ending this friendship is mean spirited or petty, I would like you to examine the times you are with this friend. How did you feel after they left? Did you feel elevated? Is this a person that leaves you feeling loved regardless of who you know or what you do? If the answer is yes, then they’re not a toxic friend. If the answer is yes, cut your loss and move forward. Use the new time to create a more profound friendship with existing friends who support you or with your immediate family.
You deserve to have a support network who is constantly rooting for you and not on your team to give you grief or attitude.
