Even though this post is shorter than usual, I can relate to it very well. Just a couple of months back, I changed my environment. Most of the toxicity I used to encounter is now gone. I am completely independent and free and it's a bliss.
The second part is a little difficult for me to incorporate. I have been a self-made person all my life, rarely taking help from anyone. While I do realize the value of loving connections, I have taught myself to manage without anyone's help. I am beginning to realize that it's going to take some major shift in my beliefs to form loving connections. As it happens, at the moment most of the people i know who are growth oriented and supportive are thousands of miles apart. I rarely meet such people in person.
So I am making a list and ordering them right away.
