Throwback Thursday

For this week’s Throwback Thursday, I’m linking to a 2-part post about Toxicity from 2010. I’m sure most of us can relate, especially to the 2nd part! Please be sure to comment and share!

Toxicity Part Two

As if we don’t have enough environmental toxicity to deal with, we always have a few toxic people in our lives that need to be “cut loose.” You know who I’m talking about. A friend, a friend of a friend, an obnoxious neighbor, it could even be a relative – those people who drag you down, drain you of energy or put you, a loved one or your dreams down as if no one else’s feelings matter. There always seems to be someone who has something negative to say or can’t help but stir up trouble; the behind-your-back-talker, the nay-sayer, the one you just can’t quite trust. They aren’t happy so they don’t want you to be happy either. I don’t need them. You don’t need them. Cut them loose. Declutter. Clean out your closet, so to speak.

I’m all for giving people a second chance, possibly a third but there comes a time when enough is enough. They can’t hurt you if you let them go. If you don’t mean enough to them, for them to be loyal and kind to you then let them go. Declutter. Remove the toxic people from your life.

Toxicity Part One

We are living in a toxic world. We breathe chemicals in the air every day. We put chemicals on our skin. We consume chemicals on a daily basis. Our water supplies are polluted with chemical substances. Our oceans are being depleted and our lands raped. People are dying from disease, murdered by their neighbors and friends, and tortured by their governments. Our entire existence is filled with hatred, greed and envy. I fear for my children and grandchildren. What kind of world will they live in come the year 2020? 2030? 2040? Will our great Earth cease to exist?
