A lot of people are going through hardships and struggles each and every day: trouble in their relationship, a loved one is sick, struggling mentally, having a big fight, feeling discontent with their job, struggling to pay the bills. Keep all these possibilities in mind when someone cuts you off or ghosts you or they overreact on the road while driving or do something that makes you angry or hurts your feelings.
If someone treats you a certain way because of something you did, it is up to that person to communicate that to you and be open about it, However, if a person is important to you and something they did/said keeps replaying in your mind over and over again, ask yourself: why is this bothering me so much? Do I think there is some truth in what they said? It may be helpful to talk and approach this person and ask if there is something that you may have done for that comment/action. IF THIS PERSON IS NOT SIGNIFICANT TO YOU: GOODBYE.
If someone values and respects you, they will honour your feelings and voice. It is courageous to speak your truth.
Toxic relationships are very destructive- especially romantic relationships. They tend to feel almost like an addiction. You can’t help but answer every text, every phone call, even when you know you will end up getting hurt. To let go of a toxic relationship, or negative people in your life, you have to be fully committed to walking away. You have to remember that as much as you like the other person, you cannot change people. Spend some time in solitude and reflect, analyze your relationship with that person and if you find a solution to fix the relationship go ahead with trying to resolve issues but if it’s not in your hands do not feel caged, make up your mind and move on.
Focus on one at a time, one that bothers you the most. Is it overindulging in food or other habits? Is it not getting enough sleep, not exercising? Don’t make a “resolution” but make a plan instead. How exactly are you going to change things? What tools will you use to make the change easier for yourself? Don’t try to change everything at once- focus on one habit at a time.
