Hold it, smile big…keep holding it, count it out, three, two, one and release. When you let it go, let out a big “Ahhhhhhh”. I bet you’re still smiling. I know I am. For way too long, I didn’t smile, I wasn’t happy, yet I searched for it everywhere. From every person I met, every relationship I entered into, whether it was just a friend, a group for business, or looking for love, I searched for happiness. There was a problem with that, happiness didn’t come from outside sources…it took me a long time to learn that. In the meantime, I made a lot of poor choices, though I didn’t realize I was making those poor choices at the time.
I had friends, who really weren’t my friends. Sure, they probably thought they were friends too, but they were toxic relationships. What is a toxic relationship? A toxic relationship is someone or something that is always bringing negativity to you. We have relationships in many ways and they can either help us, or hinder us.
Our relationships with friends, ask yourself, how do you feel after you leave them. Do they leave you feeling down, depressed, anxious, doubting yourself, do they bring you into their drama, well that is a toxic relationship.
You think that your family should always have your back, right? Unfortunately, that is not always the case. After talking or being with a family member, do you feel angry, frustrated, bitter, or do you avoid talking with them as much as you can, because you already know how the conversation will make you feel? That’s a toxic relationship.
What’s your relationship like with food? Does it make you feel good while you’re eating it, but then you hate yourself after you do because you know you shouldn’t have? Do you constantly think about your next meal, even while you’re eating the current one? Can you imagine having a food addiction? Yes, there is such a thing and yes, that is a toxic relationship.
As a Certified Life Coach, and a weight loss expert, as well as an authority of food addictions, I know all too well what a toxic relationship is like and how it can ruin your life. I will work with you to help define those toxic relationships, and teach you how to either remove them from your life where possible, or to look at them and deal with them in a different manner, which is not detrimental to you.
I’ve been in your shoes, I’ve had the friends who really were not my friends. I have the family members who drive me insane with their negativity and yes, I am a food addict, who has her addiction under control and in-check. I spent over 40 years living with a negative mindset because of all the toxicity that I was surrounded by. I was certain that it was my destiny to be miserable, but I was wrong!!
You do NOT have to spend your life being miserable, living in a body that you don’t want to, surround by toxic people, toxic thoughts and all of that negativity. Together, you and I can work to move you away from that and towards finding the positive. With just a change of your mindset, I promise that you will be amazed at the things that change in your life.
