I’ve learned this lesson several tens of times, and yet when I’m struggling with any kinda negative emotion, I forget to turn to it.
We have been raised to escape from our emotions, and taught that it’s not right to feel anger or disappointment or whatever it is that others think isn’t desired..
I myself feel weird when my son feels guilty of expressing his disappointment. He openly speaks it! He expresses it by crying out loud. N I’m getting used to being okay with that..it’s tough n yet I’m learning..
It’s okay to feel anger! The minute we let it pass, it’s gone!! Struggling with it makes it stay!
I intend to choose the ‘being okay with any negative emotion’ part.. It makes life super easy..
The effect that toxic people have on us is too contagious even to be observed ..
Even before you know, the toxic personality has passed on the toxicity and there’s a pretty bright chance that we may carry the chain reaction till some one brave chooses to do something about it!!
Have you met people who have no sense of appreciation about anything happening around them? They keep whining all the time, complaining , blaming??
Some choose to feel better about themselves by putting down the others around.. They may say mean things to you or about you behind your back and that is because they feel inadequate themselves..
These people seriously need way too much love than we think they do!! And I’m not being sarcastic here.
Their need for love gets manifested in the form of their toxicity!! When we are sick , we need to be taken care of, we feel like being loved.. And when someone does that we heal better
A toxic person is in a similar state!! Needs healing and love ..
If the next time we meet or interact with a toxic person, if we can step back and see the real cause of their toxicity – I will offer tons of gratitude to the universe for allowing me to see and share this lesson 🙂
