• Getting yourself surrounded by toxic people is the worst way of having company. I often find myself eating a lot of junk food when I’m stressed. I guess I should start eating healthy now. Comparison can only lead us to think that we are inferior than the other person, it’s toxic and and truly make us unhappy. Great post. Thanks for sharing!

    • Thank you for reading. I do think toxic people is one of the big ones. I read on another blog that apparently you’re the average of the people you spend time with, which puts in perspective how significant toxic people can be!

  • YAS I’m living for this post. Sometimes it’s so easy to justify our actions that we don’t even realize what we’re doing is extremely toxic to ourselves and sometimes others.
    Loving this post girl, I appreciate the reminder to be more mindful of my actions (even if it is just wasting a few moments mindlessly scrolling!!)

    • Thank so you much for such a lovely comment. It’s so difficult isn’t it? I’ve definitely realised, with toxic people and my old job for example, that’s it’s only when you take yourself out the situation that you get a bit of perspective on it so I totally agree that sometimes you don’t even notice how damaging some things are.

    Such a great read! And being in quarantine has made to do a lot of self reflection and getting rid of the toxicity in my life, these tips are extremely useful 🙌🏾

    • Thanks so much! I agree that lockdown has been a good time to reflect and take stock, it’s definitely made me realise that the simple things like getting a good night’s sleep are so important!

    I used to live with toxic people and it made me a wreck of a human. The energy they were giving me made me depressed and sad all the time. That’s why I am so happy that I have my own apartment now. I am so much happier without them in my life! Thanks for sharing x

    • I agree. I used to flat share too and even though the people I lived with were perfectly nice I think it just makes such a difference having your own space to relax and unwind. Glad to hear you have your own apartment and you’re away from those people now!

    A couple quick typos (if you edit after the fact): first section – “waste of time” not “waste time”. Section about money habits – “pays to be sensible” not “pays to sensible”. Ironic because leaving this comment is itself a waste of my time, and yet here we are lol. Great article by the way! A lot are definitely easier said than done but great advice and a good starting point for establishing better habits.

    I’m so glad I read this. I’ve come a long way. My food choices have evolved to healthy with so little fast food. I’ve lost 35lbs and continuing. I have eliminated toxic and abusive people from my life. And dissolving the incarnation of an abusiveness right now. Women, guard your hearts from abusive men. Currently removing another infection of abusive. I have grown past comparing myself with anyone. I love myself and God accepts me where I am. Don’t let anyone force the shaming idea that you are less than if you don’t have a side huddle to make money. It’s a lie. And money? I have reformated my entire world around sound use of money as God guides. My five score has been at or near 800 for several years.

    • Thanks so much, and congratulations! It sounds like you’ve done incredibly well. It’s so hard to get away from toxic people but it’s only when you do that you realise how much they drain you.
