Banish Negative Relationships
Banish negative relationships. If someone makes you feel bad, hurts you, or makes you feel angry consider asking yourself, “It is worth sacrificing my health and my sanity to keep these people in my life? Is it worth my time and my energy?” If you are feeling worse and if your mental health is deteriorating reconsider these relationships.
I consider myself a very thoughtful, caring, and loving friend. My select friends I have love me. They express their love for me and are supportive in my life. How are your friends to you? Do they say nasty, hurtful, and unnecessary things? Do they make you feel bad? Reconsider them. It’s worth your mental health and sanity. Think it through and banish negative relationships.
