A relationship with a couple, with a friend, a family member … when it generates stress, it is not a healthy relationship and it has become toxic. No toxic relationship will benefit you … rather it will drain your energy until you feel emotionally drained. When you have ambivalent relationships in life (sometimes positive or sometimes negative), it will cause you more stress than if they are always positive or always negative.

When you have positive relationships you will feel relaxed all the time and when the relationships are negative, you don’t relax when you are around these people. The latter is similar to chronic stress in that the body never fully recovers from the stress it experiences when faced with life situations. Stressful relationships have a negative impact on people’s health, from higher blood pressure to heart disease and other ailments.

Relationship conflicts affect you both physically and emotionally so it is something that can be complicated on a personal level. If you feel that the relationships around you are stressing you out, then the time has come to reevaluate your relationships and eliminate those in your life that you consider negative or toxic.

It has a mantra

Every time a toxic person tries to make you feel bad, look back and realize all the emotional damage they do to you. Do not allow yourself to become demoralized or do not believe that you cannot free yourself from that destructive being. You can think of a kind of mantra that you can repeat over and over again: “It may be good for someone else, but it is a wrecking ball for me and must be out of my life.”

When you connect this mantra with that person you will realize how the best thing for you is to get away from that person who only causes you stress and anxiety.

Cut any type of contact

If you really want to forget that person and have them leave your life forever … then you need to cut off any kind of contact. At the beginning you should do it very strictly because with the passage of time you will realize that it is not necessary for you to maintain contact with that person to be well.

People who are toxic tend to have softer or manipulative sides that can make you feel weak in the face of their charms. If at any point you feel vulnerable, you can fall into their networks and establish unhealthy contact. You need to think about how to minimize contact with that person. If, for example, you have to see that person often for various reasons, you can be polite and say nothing more.

Remember all you are worth

It is important that you feel good about who you are, what your story is and what you offer to personal and professional relationships in your day-to-day life. You have great value and that is why it is necessary that you put your emotional health first. Have compassion on yourself if you want to get back into that toxic relationship . 

It is normal that you miss that person, especially if he has formed an important part of your life in recent years. However, keep in mind that wasted times that made you feel good do not mean that that person was good for you. If you have trouble remembering your own worth, think about what you would say to a family member or close friend who wants to return to a toxic relationship. Thinking about how you can value or advise another person can help you move forward.

Once you have made the decision to get away from that person, do not go back, and surround yourself with positive people who provide you with good energy all the time. You are worth a lot and you should treat yourself as you deserve.
