Not all toxic people are cruel and uncaring. Some of them are toxic to our being simply because their needs and way of existing in the world force us to compromise ourselves and our happiness. They aren’t inherently bad people, but they aren’t the right people for us. And as hard as it is, we have to let them go. You have to make your wellbeing a priority. Whether that means breaking up with someone you care about or removing yourself from a situation that feels painful — you have every right to leave and create a safer space for yourself. Life is hard enough without being around people who bring you down.
Big thanks for your jump!
