As important as it is to learn about the toxic people in your life and how to remove them, it also important to remember in learning about them you are also learning an incredible amount about who you are. You learn exactly where your weaknesses are and to whom you are most vulnerable. You learn who you can trust with your heart and your secrets and you learn who will use these same things against you.
It is important to focus on what you learn about toxic people and apply it to how you need to change the way you show up in relationships. Learning about them helps you become clearer on what you are no longer willing to tolerate and where your boundaries need to be. They are not going to change, so don’t learn about toxic people with the intent of trying to get them to change.
You have to change. And when you do, you will be braver and more confident when removing them from your life.
