We talk about being inspirational in life. The first step in inspiring people is for you to let go of your own baggage. The baggage is the people who make your life toxic. The catch is: what if that person is a parent? I have a great friend. She is 45. She still struggles with the legging go part with her mom. My friend shares to much, in my opinion. Why? She knows her mom is judgmental.

If you know this, well why would you share information, you know she will judge you about? Maybe she’s a gluten for punishment? I don’t know. What I do know is that she has cried to me many times about it. I have shared my own struggles, with my mother, with my friend. My dear friend tells me often, she’s not strong as I am.

It’s not strength. It’s a force field. I have emotionally built it over the years. This force field has enabled me to finally see that my emotional well being rest on me letting go negative people in my life. Is this easy?

Nope! It’s freeing. Will you miss those negative people? Yes! Only the quirky things about them, will you miss. However, you will never cry over being treated a certain way. You may save money along the way. So how do we let them go? Good question! I am glad you asked!

  1. Know you are worth more.
  2. Remind yourself you need this to survive emotionally.
  3. Remind yourself, you are needed for better people and experiences. 
  4. Pray that the person will find growth and better ways.
  5. Never feel bag for walking away from a toxic relationship. 

Always remember, your first friend is God. Everyone else is dessert! Food = Good; Dessert = Friends & Family. You cannot have one without the other. However, in order to receive the second, you need the first.

  1. I can definitely relate to this blog post. We are at our most productive to other people and in our own lives when we are more positive and optimistic about life in general. Sadly, the people we love the most can dampen that with their negativity, if all they ever talk about and dwell on is their “misfortune”. Its one thing to allow someone to vent to us but over time, if they constantly discuss negativity, we will absorb those vibrations and start to take on their energy. I thoroughly loved this read. Peace and love to you.

    1. Thank you for your kind words. Indeed you are correct. I am actually giving up toxic people for lent. Plus, reading all these comments from by blog posting and responding to everyone. xoxo, Lioness

  2. Negative people drain me. Really had to learn how to let them go. At some point, it ain’t healthy anymore.

  3. Umm tough it is a family member? Also, we could have the wrong end of the stick. It is not like that we are all born wise. We make mistakes and we could be judging somes love as judgmental and not realising thats the only way they know how to express themselves. Now it is extremely easy to know when someone is down right mean. But all children get their parents wrong because of our childhood tapes.. and immaturity.. also we dont understand their life story and hard ship and their desire for the best of….

    1. I am not sorry for my views or experience. If you wish to condone negative behavior and write it off, that’s for you to do. But, I will never condone inappropriate behavior even if it comes from a parent. God grants us free will to live lives that are pleasing in his eye. Parent or not, children are to be cared for and not mistreated. Thanks for reading.

      1. I dont condone it at all. I think in some cases we can get it wrong because of our own emotional baggage and just to be mindful of that ..i say this to myself. I absolutely dont condone negativity of others on my life or anothers no way do i condone it. Who can condone it? I am not expressing myself well. I think your post is great and valid. I just say i should be mindful of my emotional baggage that may not allow me to see something …. if definately dont condone negative or abusive behaviour.

  4. Wonderful amazing information given so simplifying the tools to understand “self”
    IF one person reading this blog learnt only one word and used it to the world what a wonderful Panettiere it would be ..Blessings xxxxx

  5. Just what I needed to hear. Thankyou
    We all have our baggage but the worst kind is having a troubled relationship with your parent. On one side you are bound to respect them cause they brought you into this world and made you what you are today. On the other hand they can elicit so much pain and negativity by judging and belittling you.
    I think it’s best to cut the cord and remove the toxicity

  6. Hello , sometimes it could be hard to end toxic relationships for some reasons but i think it can be learned. Life is a gift so it shouldnt be wasted to struggle with this negative vibes. If it affects us negatively, we must start departing from that . Thanks for remind us to preserve our positive energy and lives and to live much more free and meaningfully. Best
