Toxic Waste Dump

I don't normally let my posts be very personal. I usually let myself keep it lighthearted or business minded. But this post is different.

There are a lot of good people in this world. Even more people who are fairly in the middle, usually good but sometimes naughty.

Then there are the toxic people. People who come into your life and infect you with their own diseases. People who hurt you and manipulate you.

And these are the most addictive people in the world. I know this is true because so many people stay in abusive relationships, protect abusive parents, return to drug pushing boyfriends. These people are harder to leave than to stay with.

But, if you have someone like this in your life, you need to leave. You need to cut them out of your life.

Or else you will never be happy. Or healthy. Or safe.

So, if you accomplish nothing else this year, accomplish this...

Take those relationships to the toxic waste dump. Then wash your hands, change your clothes, and finally live your life.

Excelsior.
