This is a topic we've addressed before here on BBB, but this is a topic that will never run out of fuel. That's talking about negative relationships, what it does to you, brings to your life or subtracts from your life and the world surrounding you. This could be any type of relationship family, friends or intimate.
The great thing about all creatures upon this earth is, the connections we can make with one another, the way we can mix our energies together, build rapport and foster a relationship. Sometimes these connections can be built with a person that is, or brings negative energy into your life.
We've all had a relationship of some sort that has struck a point of negativity, it's something that will temporally consume your life and energy. One of the major problems is that we see the negative effects, once this relationship has already been in our lives for a significant period of time. You could also see this early on, but chose to ignore it or be in denial. This leads to making excuses for these negative people in your life, for their behaviour or like I mentioned before just avoiding the thought all together.
The effects aren't just limited to your life, but also the people close to you, this has a domino effect! Which is why something needs to be done about it.
Someone's bad, should never outweigh their good! The people allowed into your life, should be adding to it and vice versa. There is no excuse for the behaviour a negative person exhibits and it shouldn't be something that is tolerated. If it seems as if a person in your life causes more stress, turmoil or you're constantly walking on eggshells, waiting for the next outburst of extreme negativity and negative energy this should be considered a poison to you.
Set a standard for the people in your life!
Let the poison go...
You can't save a person from their own negativity, the only cure they have is themselves. A person will make the choice on their own time and path to which they repair the quality of their life. The only part that you're in control of is, what you allow into YOUR life.
The world has created medical terms around negativity and what it does to our health called the "Nocebo Effect"
Nocebo is Latin for "I Shall Harm"
a detrimental effect on health produced by psychological or psychosomatic factors such as negative expectations of treatment or prognosis. (Definition From Google)
These relationships can cause
It's not unknown in this world that stress is bad for us, stress is the culprit to many health issues and we spend our lives trying to reduce it.
An excess amount of stress, causes your body to deteriorate, age, internally and externally at a faster rate, which can also cause other health issues. This also causes headache, anxiety, anger, pain, lack of motivation and will even effect your quality of sleep.
a negative person is a vacuum to your energy, this isn't just one type of being tired, but full body and mind exhaustion.
Negativity can also play a role in cardiac disease, high blood pressure, respiratory problems and even cancer.
You'll banish the negativity from your life when you get tired of being tired, having all your energy drained, before you can use for productivity or positivity. There will be a time when you finally say that" you've had enough of this impeding your world." Negativity can appear so normal, because after having it in your life for so long, you may not know any different, we seem to just simply adapt, and then that becomes our way of life. It's time to realize, that life can be lived without a negative aspect! This isn't saying it's not a difficult transition, to get this out of your life, it's a long road that is going to be continuous, it's going to test you along the way, to make sure you're paying attention to your main goal, but it's all worth what you'll get back in the end.
