Dig Your Way Out


At times I find myself surrounded by a toxic wasteland of bodies. I’m thinking some of you do too.

We have to evaluate the circumstances. There are family members, co-workers, friends and so on that are part of our circle.

Cancel the subscription to the unnecessary bullshit. It’s really a burial ground.

Do not allow these destructive people to pull you into circling the drain with them. It’s mind over matter all day, every day.

Take a knife and cut the cord already. Make the change and flip the switch. Come at them with positive responses. Compliment them on something you find significant about them. There’s something good in everyone. Sometimes you have to use a magnifying glass but it’s there.

Resist the wreckage. Clear out the debris. Don’t allow these people to suck the happiness out of your soul. Put light into their dark tunnel.

Digging your way out will be gratifying. You might also be influential to these toxic people. Positivity spreads like a wildfire. Shouldn’t we all bring value to each other?

This game of life can be hard on us…. “A great spirit rises from the ashes.”

    Good advice. No sense tolerating or enduring what is toxic. If you can’t escape due to circumstances I suppose we must learn to compartmentalize and not let things get to us. Often though, it takes practice. Thanks visit my blog.

      I think sometimes we get caught up with the negativity from others and lose ourselves in it and forget that our lives really are good. It’s amazing the power that the other person has over us….cutting the chord is one of the best things we can do 🙂

    I think maybe as you get older, you learn who to care about, and who to completely ignore – and the drama queens go straight onto the ignore list for me – every time 🙂
