What is the Quality of Your Relationships? Toxic or Edifying
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. When we surround ourselves with positive people we do create space for more positive relationships to enter. But it takes being honest with ourselves and honest with others. More often than not, people do respect our honesty and frankness.
Take a few moments each day to reflect on the people within your day and how they either added to or detracted from the quality of your day. Make it a point to ensure you have high-quality interactions more often than not.
