i'm not mad. i'm a writer.

I’m not going there! That’s what we often to say to people when we see them coming with their antics. It’s a great way to avoid foolishness and maybe keeps you away from behaviors and personalities that clash with your ascent. But you can only do that for so long. Truth is, there are literally some people who love to keep mess going and some of us have determined that in order for us to grow and take off in life we need to be absolutely clear on who these characters are in our life. These people are the ones we call toxic!

Toxic- used to describe a person who is tainted by a subconscious malevolence or psychosis that affects the lives of those who come into contact with them.

Toxic people come in all shapes, sizes, ages, races and religions. If you’re going greatplaces in life you need to understand this. See, no amount of life experience, education and resources can change the fact that some people are just full of poison. They can’t seem to get themselves together for nothing. Always being messy. They love gossip and drama. It’s like they can’t breathe without chaos and confusion. Sometimes it’s you. Sometimes you are the toxic person. We all have been that to someone at one time or another if we are honest. True growth is when you start being honest with yourself and then and only then can you begin the process of getting better. If you always look at everyone else and point the finger and blame them for their toxicity and never accept responsibility for the poisonous habits you possess and your patterns of dysfunction; you’ll actually stay missing out on some good relationships. Sure, some people are not good for you. But let’s be honest, where you are mentally and emotionally today, you’re not so good for them either. We often have a tendency to be attracted to people who mirror our mentality. What kind of people are drawn to you? Seriously! Think about the qualities of the people who you spend the most time with. If all of them are “the problem” what does that say about YOU!? This kind of self reflection is only for those who want to go to the next level. Is that you? Do you really want to take off? Do you really want to step up and be a better leader? Do you actually want to be in a healthy relationship? Do you want to elevate in your field or your business? If the answer is yes, then go there. Go to a place of truth in your dealings with yourself and with the people in your life and stop calling everyone and everything toxic. Your not wanting to go “there” is not helping you ascend. The higher you go, the more you’re going to have to deal with the interesting personalities that go along with your elevation. The higher you go, the more thick skinned you have to be. See, the same low level stuff that used to get under your skin at this level shouldn’t phase you where you’re about to go. If you’re going to be great you can’t keep letting stupid stuff bother you. You are bigger than the pettiness you have been allowing to take you out of your place of peace. Stay in your zone.

You can’t change toxic people, neither is that your job! You are the captain of your own destiny. Stop wasting your time on dumb stuff. Keep soaring to your destination and relax your mind. I’m so excited for you. You’re rising above the pettiness and baby you ain’t seen nothing yet!
