I have been pondering my life, and trying to work on myself, and my relationship WITH myself. It has taken a long time for me to understand that I was worth investing time and energy into, solely to benefit MYSELF.
But, there are toxic things in our lives, right?
I think it is so sad how common it is to actually not think of ourselves at all, but rather to function from a place where we work to please others. We exist solely to please others.
Like, as if we are robots. Just functioning within our toxicity.
How much of your life, and your energy is being taken up by or with, negative/toxic energies?
How much of your life are you operating from ROBOT?
What do I mean by toxic energies?
Any sort of negative energy or person/people that affect your mental health. This can be, jobs, situations, relationships. Anything really.
Anything that brings out stresses in you, and/or affects your mental health in a negative manner.
Now I don`t mean just one stressful situation. Usually these toxic things are ongoing, and have happened repeatedly, the feelings associated with it as well.
Can you let them go? Is it easy for you to get rid of the toxicity in your life? Can you cope with it well? What about operating from ROBOT stance? Do you ever find you are simply just existing?
This is definitely something I am learning.
See, understanding self-love has given me a new perspective on areas of my life, and in terms of toxicity, it has allowed me to see that I don`t need it. I don`t need to have toxic situations and/or people in my life.
Toxic people are often those who are un-supportive of people in their Mental Health journey I have found. The people who doubt ones feelings, emotions and thoughts. All that does for the one struggling, is make them struggle more. It is completely unfair that anyone struggling has to face this.
Then, we just turn on our ROBOT, or, actually, was it ever off?
I know, myself, I have been on auto-pilot and coasting for years. I think it first began with becoming a mother. Upon becoming a mother, I was taught that I no longer mattered. Life wasn`t about me anymore.
I`ve been coasting.
Making it through…. day by day…
Just being a robot.
Just trying to coast through the toxicity.
Lately, while learning about self-love, and strengthening my relationship with myself, I have been practising being in-tune to situations, and my life. I`ve been paying attention to how my mental health is, and how my emotions are.
Because, I deserve to live a mindful, and happy life.
I deserve to actually LIVE, rather than coast. I deserve to have support, and non-toxic people in my journey.
I`m not a pro, at cutting out the toxicity. I just listen to my heart. I listen to my body, and to my mind.
You deserve this too. You deserve to be living a mindful happy life, filled with support, kindness and love.
Please, practise LIVING.
Get rid of the TOXICITY.
Transform being in ROBOT mode to being in an AMAZING mode!
