Where can I start? We have all encoutered toxic and negative individuals in our lives.
You know who they are, they can’t find any happiness in your joy.
It can be difficult to remove these individuals if you are forced to work with them, or even worse if they are family.
So what can you do? In one word, boundaries.
I am not saying it will be easy, but for your own sanity you have to do it.
There are just some people in the world who look at a glass half empty and if you are someone who considers that glass half full it will not work.
In work related cases, always speak to HR or mangement. No one deserves to be bullied. But, when it comes to family, it can be a bit trickier.
You can decide to end the relationship or maintain with boundaries. Either one will be hard but it is a personal decision. But, for your mental health, one must be made.
And finally, surround yourself with kind, non-toxic individuals. They are out there and probably searching for you!
