Have you ever felt like you deserve something better? Then why settle for something less than you desire? You can decide from now that you won’t tolerate bad behavior in your life. People who try to bring you down suck the life from you and leave you feeling miserable. Why would you accept that when you can eliminate similar types of behavior? If you want to change how people are treating you and detox your life from the negativity, here are 6 behaviors you should not allow in your life.
We live in a world where the problems of people can actually bring them closer rather than their successes. Most people are not only comfortable to share their problem but this has also become a way to make friends. Whenever you hear someone trying to start a conversation with you using negativity as a catalyst, remind yourself that you don’t need more drama in your life. Choose your health over that, choose to stay in your “positivity bubble” rather than feeding your soul with unresourceful energy.
2. Underestimating your abilities and strength
Don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t achieve something you want. Stay true to yourself and to your dreams. Don’t quit just because someone thinks differently than you. The important thing is you to believe in your potential. You are strong enough to pursue your most desirable ambitions.
Paying attention to what people say and what they do in reality will definitely help you see who the honest people in your life are. If you get caught in a person’s trap of lies once, that is a sign that must remind you to be more careful next time you communicate with them. And remember- actions speak louder than words.
Bullying is not a problem just among kids and teenagers. It is a very common issue for adults, too. Many people just don’t recognize it because it is usually disguised as verbal aggression or other types of intolerant behavior. Bullying is not something that should just be accepted. Nobody has the right to make you feel bad for who you truly are. Unfortunately, there will always be people who try to bring others down by saying mean words. This kind of people will try their best to bring your ego to the ground but it is your responsibility not to let that happen. At first, it may seem frightening to fight back their toxic behavior but you will be glad you did. So, be aware of people who are trying to make you feel inferior. But also take note that bullying can even come from the most unexpected people, for example, your friends or family. Be alert of how others are treating you and when necessary, confront them.
5. Others taking control over your life
You are the architect of your own world. Why would you let anyone else decide how to manage your life? Of course, it is human to feel out of control and ask someone to help you find your way back on the track but don’t let them take charge of your life..
6. Physical violence and abuse
If you are a physical abuse survivor or have been the block between an abuser and someone close to you, if you tried to forgive and to move on with your life, you are a hero! Most people know that physical violence is a serious issue that should never be ignored and you must never tolerate such behavior but it is still surprising how many families and relationships are going through this right now. So, if you know someone who is struggling with this or has had such an experience before, give him a helping hand and encourage them to let go of their past, anger so that they can move on with their life the healthy way.
You are a sum of your life choices, so choose wisely what kind of behaviors towards yourself you tolerate. Remember that you are in charge of your life and that you are stronger than you think. Live well and don’t settle for anything less than you desire.
