We have more control over our lives than we think we do. We have all heard that the squeaky wheel gets the grease. And the squeaky wheel is usually the loudest and the most toxic. Whew… and the squeaky wheel will surely drain your energy!
Inside our lives reside a variety of people. Some of these people are a joy to be around and some are simply… well… toxic. It is up to us to assess the amount of time we spend with people and gauge the quality of these relationships. We do have more power to choose our relationships than we realize. Sometimes it does mean leaving a relationship or even a job. But more often it means setting boundaries.
