The one person in your life

Are you confused about someone in your life?

I'm sure you have heard the term "toxic people", these are people you should try and eliminate from your life.  These people tend to poison your mind with negativity, rumors and are always letting you down.  If you have someone in your life that fits this description, limit your time with them as much as you can.

There is another type of person in your life whom you may be mistaking as a toxic person, be careful you do not need to eliminate this person. Do you have someone in your life that bounces around from relationship to relationship?  How about someone you find simply has a family life you cannot agree with?  And lastly, that one person who has a hobby that you find to be simply a waste of time.
Every time you are around this person you tell them what they are doing is wrong, you are always trying to change their ways. Even with the hate and anger you hold for this person you consider them as your best friend.  You both get along so well, you can confide in each other, share life experiences and you even look forward to time spent with this person.

If you have someone in your life you can't understand and criticize them for there actions you are a toxic person to them, and slowly them may leave you. Scary, isn't it.......

We must stop trying to figure these people out and learn to respect their life choices, as hard as it may seem. If you truly care about someone, just be there for them in hard times and good times.  Nobody wants to hear they are making the wrong life choices, especially from a friend.  How do you like it when someone points out your flaws? (don't lie)  Life is tuff enough to try and figure out on our own and we do not need to start and try to figure out why people do what they do, it's exhausting.

People do not change, yet you can make all the changes in the world.  It's up to you to make changes not for people in your life to make changes so you can be happy!  Next time your friend makes a silly choice and you don't agree with it, learn not to criticize.  You can go home write it down on paper and destroy it, a friendship is difficult to understand yet to precious to throw away.  Learn to respect bad choices because you make bad choices yourself on a daily basis.

Stay motivated
