If you take the time to respect what you are putting into your body and are taking care of yourself, remember that it's just as important to surround yourself with nontoxic people. Not all toxic people are bad, in fact many love us dearly and even have good intentions. They are however toxic to us because their needs and way of existing and being compromise us, ourselves, and our own well being and happiness. It doesn't mean they are bad people, they just aren't the right people for us. As hard as it is, as hard as it may be, we have to let them go. Let's be honest, life is hard enough without the additional stressors of toxic relationships. People who bring you down, cause you to lose sleep, and worry. No matter how much you love them and truly care. You can't lose yourself and destroy your peace over someone else. Your well being must be a priority. That may look different depending on the situation, ending a relationship, loving a family member from a distance, letting go of a friend, or simply removing yourself from a situation. You have the right to respect yourself, to treat yourself right, to remove all toxic situations, and to create the best life for you, no matter what that looks like. It's not selfish.
