Don’t Go Tripping!

The word ‘tripping’ means to catch one’s foot on something and stumble or fall. To stagger, slip, slide, or lose balance.

We can trip over a step, a rug, a pet, cords, an uneven sidewalk, and the list can go on and on….but for some of us we can find ourselves tripping over people who have been placed strategically around us.

I have found myself tripping by either overreacting or having a meltdown when I am either exhausted or in a toxic environment.

Okay! Exhaustion – I can handle this by making time to relax and catch up on some much needed rest. Check πŸ‘

But what can be done when you are in a toxic environment? πŸ€”

Toxic environment is where there is significant drama and fights creating a negative impact on our lives. The kind of situations where we lose hope, becoming the very person we taught we would never become.

I guess that’s when you say – it’s time to move on and stop tripping. πŸ™Œ

I hate seeing myself turning slowly into a complete stranger because of tripping over people.

A relationship that tears you down, or makes you question your values… goes against a healthy balance – and should be labeled ‘toxic‘.

Those in our inner circle should empower and fight for us as we do the same for them. It absolutely doesn’t matter how long you have known each other….be aware when the atmosphere turns toxic.

Two persons who are not equally matched together will always create unwanted drama. If my values are different from your values then this will lead to the both parties becoming toxic.

When our joy tank reads empty – know that there’s trouble. Pull aside and do a random check on the last persons you interacted with. Get to the nearest refreshing stand and fill up.

It’s great to know our strengths and weaknesses. There’s no need to pretend if the relationship is healthy. A healthy relationship covers and protects each other.

Forgiveness gets us past our hurts and disappointments. Refusing to forgive is like carrying a bag of garbage full of hurts. When the relationship is healthy…both parties travel.
