Dear Kristy, Good Morning !!!! What's your thoughts about removing my mean mom ? I'm trying so hard . I've been following the secret for over 7 years now . I'm good at it in someways ... Someways not so much ... Like my family . It's ripping my heart out . I guess I'm just hoping I get some message from you saying its ok, I'm gonna be ok . Thanks for taking the time to read my stuff. I've been following your blogs for a little over a year now and I absolutely love you!
I am assuming you're asking me this because I am always telling people to remove the negative toxic people from their lives, no matter whom it is....moms included! It's just not possible to live a positive life with negative people in it, regardless of the "titles" those negative people hold in our lives.
It's easier said than done but I believe we must take a personal stand and say "I will not, and cannot, accept your negative energy in my life anymore. If it's someone you truly cannot remove completely then you need to learn how to "compartmentalize" them in your life. Keep them in a place that's safe, not destructive.
When, and if, you're around them stay "tuned out" temporarily, in the moment. Do not discuss things that are "hot topics" which could lead to negative energy and keep your distance in every way possible. Listen, a few years ago I cleansed my life of all toxic negative people...some stayed away for good...and some, after having found their own way in life, came back to me with a renewed sense of our relationship.
It's like the air masks that drop down in case of loss of cabin pressure on the airplane. Place your mask firmly on you first before helping those around you! IF YOU ARE NOT ALIVE and well you will be of no true service to anyone anyways! ALWAYS take care of yourself first...
