I saw this post on Pinterest the other day that read: I’m 97% sure you don’t like me and I 100% don’t care. Let’s have this mentality when we find ourselves wondering if we should or shouldn’t continue spending time with certain people.
1. Why I decided to start living by this rule
Want to know why I decided to start living by this rule? Because life is too short. I’m really tired of questioning if a certain person or a group of people are good for me. I would make up excuses as to why I thought I wanted them in my life only to be hurt yet again. Enough is enough. And I don’t know about you, but I’m really tired of this rollercoaster. It’s time I start making room for people who really matter.
2. The right people are refreshing
It’s like a cold glass of lemonade on a hot summer day. It’s refreshing, it quenches your thirst. It’s all you want at that moment. Having the right people are just like lemonade. They fill your cup (no pun intended). You feel good after spending time with them. You look forward to the next time you get to see them.
3. Let the toxic people go
Stop. Get out a piece of paper and write down the names of all the toxic people and situations in your life. Now once you’ve made that list, let those people go. There’s a reason why they made it to that list. Every time one of them asks to make plans with you, don’t feel like you have to go. In fact, don’t come up with an excuse why you should go. Be your very best friend in that moment and say you can’t make it. Make the conscious effort to remove these people from your world.
My take away…
I 100% don’t care. If you're 97% sure they don’t like you, then 100% don’t care. Stop making plans with them or making up excuses for them. They are toxic in your life and you need to remove them. The right people are refreshing, like a glass of lemonade. You’ll want to keep those lemons!
Let’s keep the conversation going. Why are you continuing to keep toxic people in your life and are you ready to have them removed?
