I just started college and I would have never thought I would find some toxic people. Growing up, I encountered some people that have treated me poorly, and as I gave them more chances, the worse the mistreatment got. I have learned throughout the years to STOP giving people the chances they don’t deserve and 110% remove them from your life because you will find better people. I just got out of some friendships I had adored and cherished so incredibly much. It’s been 3 months, and trust me, it still hurts. It hurts like a romantic breakup. I have given so much time, effort, and trust into these relationships to get trampled on, and I knew it was enough. 110% they are out of my life through my decision, and I know it hurts now, but it was for the better. I know there are better people out there for me.
This seems like the silly way out, but trust me, it’s worth it. Block them from your Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, Facebook, phone, EVERYTHING! Every time I had troubles with people, my mom told me to block them. This seemed really silly but the tip was incredibly useful. I personally reach back out to people, because I miss them, and blocking them won’t allow me to do that. Or I’ve had some cases where they try to come back to see and silly little me allows them back in my life. NOPE, NOT TODAY OR EVER AGAIN! The block button is a useful and powerful button
Find New Friends
In desperate times, you’re going to want someone outside of your family to talk to. A friend’s shoulder is sometimes the best to lean on. Go out and be social, which is tricky for some people, I get it. I’ve learned to open up more and talk to the people around me in my classes and do the usual, “Let’s hang out sometime or do homework together! Here’s my number…” This is how I’ve made so many of my friends recently.
If you have a fallout with someone, they might want to see your life go downhill. Don’t let that happen! Reader, you’re a great and beautiful person! It’s okay to be sad about losing someone but DO NOT let that prevent you from being overall happy.
I am a strong believer that everything happens for a reason and if God took people out of your life, it’s okay because His plans are so much better than you dream. Romans 8:18 “I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.”
