One of the greatest sources of happiness occurs in healthy relationships.
One of the greatest sources of suffering occurs in toxic relationships.
Many people encourage separation from toxic relationship. I would like to challenge you to take a step back and look with me at the entire picture.
We have been given our own life to be lived greatly, in a world that exists for us. We must trust the process, and we must trust ourselves completely, we must know the soul within, we must understand our own personal power that goes with us, everywhere we ARE. We must also see this greatness within each life we connect to, we must believe they hold the same potential as ourselves. I am asking you to think on the idea that though a person potentially be "toxic" in a relationship, they are awesome. Its all in the mind set.
Healing in toxic relationship starts here, in the mind. You have the power to choose how you perceive another human being, yes, they may be demonstrating terrible flaws, yet, they have the same potential to be noble, and with the ability to understand the actual, the reality of their being, you can begin to heal how you interact with them. Treat them as a wonder, honor the soul within, a little sugar on a sour spirit sweetens the whole. Acting in congruency with the greater understanding, giving them the respect of a noble human, even if their active lives do not warrant that treatment. Try this, test to see if this change in mindset creates change in the toxicity of the relationship.
Lean toward healing, If this does not create any change or motion towards a better relationship, I would then consider maintaining your good perception, do not harm them, let them find companions suited to their tastes and you maintain your power and happiness, you will both be made better from your time and experience together, and now seek those who are like you, growing towards their full nobility, and who see the wonder in you.
Expanding is a process, and within this process is change of form, anytime we change we experience discomfort. I wish you courage through displeasure, wisdom to honor it and healing from toxic relationship.
