How to Deal with Toxic People

We have all had to deal with toxic people at one point or another in our lives. It’s not the obvious that I will be addressing in this article.

I am referring to the insidious, sometime even so called “fun” people in our lives. People who are dealing with (or totally ignoring) their addictions. They may be alcoholics or sympathy junkies, they may be addicted to failure or criticism or racism. They may say they want something out of life, but is their behavior really in alignment with their goal?

There are a lot of people who truly believe that sarcasm or stating what bad things can happen in any situation are speaking the truth. Well, this is not the case. It is their truth and they will manifest it. It is not your truth, so don’t confuse this point. They are creating that very thing in their own lives, and if you don’t want it to leak over to you then get away from them. They are toxic and only wish to spread that toxicity to you and everything you do simply by being in your life. Get rid of them now, before you suffer for having them around you in any way shape or form.

Some people say that you can’t pick your family and must stay in a battle with them to keep the peace. Do you see what is wrong with this picture? How can you depend on a family member, an employee or even a friend if what comes out of their mouth is not totally on point with what you wish to manifest in your own life, or if there is a small window that you can interact with them due to some addiction, these are not healthy people, this WILL NOT work. Distance yourself as far as possible from the source or suffer the consequences.

We are in a time in the evolution of the planet when what we think, say and feel reverberates though everything we are creating and is made manifest VERY quickly, so be MINDFUL of what is coming out of your mouth, what you are feeling and if that expression is in alignment with what you wish to manifest.

We are the end of this lunar phase and the end of the Scorpio energies (at least the overall zodiacal sign in Western astrology). This can be a good time, once and for all, to clear the table and get on with what you want to manifest and do. Make sure your words match what you want to see or just say nothing. If you have any addictions, put them to rest once and for all and get on with your life. You might just save a couple of relationships you say you care about. You might have to sacrifice some relationships you thought were important to you. You will be better off all the way around by making this sacrifice.
