As You Remove Toxic People From Your Life, You Free Up Space and Emotional Energy for Positive, Healthy Relationships – John Mark Green

Every person I know has experienced a time in their life when they had to leave someone important behind. This is because that important person, or the relationship itself, became a negative and hurtful presence.

As we continue on our life journey, we meet so many different people and build so many relationships. At some point, we’re bound to find a relationship that becomes toxic – or maybe we eventually discover that it’s been toxic the whole time.

Don’t be afraid to say goodbye to someone who’s a negative influence in your life. Even if they make you feel guilty, even if YOU make yourself feel guilty. Stand strong. Know that keeping yourself emotionally healthy and happy will always come first. It’s most important to take care of yourself.

Once this happens, you will have more room for the relationships that make you smile and help you feel good and loved. You will have more room to remind yourself that you deserve to be happy.

  1. This is so true and a great reminder, because removing toxic people is HARD. But it’s so much better than having to keep dealing with the constant flow of negativity! Thanks for a good reminder.

  2. Oh my goodness, can I relate to this one! It’s definitely not always as easy as we would like it to be to remove toxic people from our lives, but what a difference! So much better for our physical and mental health.

  3. Thank you for posting! I needed to hear this.

  4. I think that this has been a theme for me this week. Having discovered this in my life, and now being without it for a while, I have seen how things have changed for the better, and I am looking forward with a new sense of purpose and hope.

  5. This blog was so good! And I can relate to the truth of i!

  6. This piece just hit it on the nose for me. An experience that I’m going through at this very moment. It hurts to have to let go of someone that you care about so dearly, but now I leave it in GOD’s hands. I did all that I can. Thank you for reassuring me.

  8. You will also have more and better to give to other relationships. Toxicity doesn’t just affect you, it affects everyone. Sometimes when we remove ourselves from toxic relationships, the other person is able to see themselves. Not always, but sometimes.

  9. I need this too. Thanks for covering this subject today!

  10. I relate so much to all of your posts. I absolutely agree. Leaving behind important people hurts so much, but man, will it improve the quality of your life by allowing positive energy to start flowing.

  11. Very nice sentiment, and so much truth within the message. Growth and change!

  12. Nice! My friend says you are not losing a friend or partner, you are gaining yourself.

  13. Great focus! It’s important to remember that you can’t win them all!!

  14. Who could disagree with this? Yet, as most of us know too well, removing toxicity from our lives, especially when it takes the place of a living, breathing person, is easier said than done. At any rate, life is too short to suffer poisonous people who hold us back.

  15. It is hard to leave toxic people. They don’t think oh themselves as toxic. They often also have good aspects. The break will hurt them and yourself. With the passage of time, you will realize that you now breathe easier. It was the right choice for you. Hugs, Barbara
