5 Signs You Need To Cut Someone Toxic Out Of Your Life
Sometimes, no matter how much you want to keep someone in your life, they are not good for you.
When we form friendships and relationships, we do not think that they will end in heartbreak and tears. Subsequently, when we are faced with difficulties, we continue to fight because we value the people in our lives. It rarely occurs to us that they may not value us as much. This realization only comes about after a long period of suffering and sadness. Usually, it is when we hit rock bottom that we understand that certain people do not deserve to be in our lives at all.
There are 5 signs you need to cut someone out of your life before you hit rock bottom.
1. It’s a one-sided relationship.
Every friendship and relationship is made of two people. This means that if one stops putting in the effort, the connection will inevitably perish. If you find yourself being the only one to check up on someone, make plans with them, and support them, you are most likely in a one-sided relationship. Being in a one-sided relationship is not only difficult but disappointing and saddening. Eventually, you will be the one to get hurt if you do not end the relationship.
2. Your morals and values are different.
Of course, it is normal to have contrasting views and opinions on things; however, if you have different morals and values, you are bound to often encounter issues that will be impossible to solve.
3. They do not support you.
A true friend (or partner) will be there to support, encourage, and motivate you. They will remind you of your strengths and your ability to achieve anything you put your mind to. Furthermore, they will always be there for you when you are facing difficulties. If the people in your life are never there when you need them, they probably do not deserve to be a part of your life at all.
4. You cannot have meaningful conversations.
Do you have deep, meaningful conversations or do you spend hours gossiping when you meet up? If all your friend does is gossip, this means that they most likely gossip behind your back too. Being friends with someone who constantly spreads rumors is risky; that is, you too are bound to get sucked into the drama.
5. There is no trust.
There can be no relationship or friendship if there is no trust. You need to be able to trust and rely on the people in your life. If you do not think that someone is trustworthy or reliable, you should probably let them go.
Dissolving relationships and friendships with the people you love can be difficult and painful. However, you must remind yourself that when you surround yourself with people who do deserve you, you will be happier and more content than ever before.
