2018 is upon us and the most important cleanse we can’t buy in any stores is the toxic relationships cleanse. To start the new year off on the right foot, and perform a relationship detox, here are 3 ways to do just that.
Race to Erase Toxic Relationships ( Boyfriends, Girlfriends, Friends, Lovers, Co-Workers, etc)
Step 1: Block and Delete EVERY ex-boyfriend, ex-girlfriend, friend, family member, lover or anyone that brings negativity to your life on social media.
There is NO reason to watch them on social media. Splitting up is tough enough without having to figure out what their social media posts mean. Even if you haven’t seen this person in years, you still should not be online creeping or watching their every move online. And of course, the other unhealthy reason to delete and block – deliberately dropping selfies to show them what they’re missing out on. Trust me, if they really wanted to be with you, they would be. NO selfie is going to make them want to stay.
Step 2: Affirm your worth.
Toxic emotions lead to toxic relationships. How you feel about yourself and your self perception, is key to lasting relationships.
Condition your mind to accept nothing less than respect and gratitude from others. Every morning remind yourself of the following: I am worthy. I am valuable. I am capable. I am proud of me.
Step 3: Get into a new routine.
What ever your routine is, change it up. Change is good, it’s also hard. Change is hard because you brain is wired to do the same thing over and over. When you get out of your comfort zone, you tend to find things you never thought you would find. That includes finding love in places you never thought were possible. Change helps you grow, and if you are not growing, you are not living. If you’re open to learning new ways of approaching problems, you may find you learn something new about yourself, about others, and about the world. Finally, change lets you keep your mind active and doesn’t stay put in a negative zone.
Embracing change takes some practice. Getting rid of people in your life that cause you to be stressed, negative or constantly hurt, will make your life more fulfilling. Life is short. Instead of looking back, look forward. And with a relationship detox you will be on your way to living a better life. Happy New Year!
