The perfect way to live your life is with your eyes wide open. When you know that a situation or a person is toxic, don’t close your eyes and ignore the obvious.
It’s a wonderful thing to be able to see the best in people, to give the benefit of the doubt, and to turn the other cheek, but you should never volunteer to pull the wool over your eyes.
Surround yourself with people that willingly make a positive contribution to your life, who want the best for you. If someone wants to withdraw without making a deposit, be aware. Nobody can use you without your permission.
If you recognize that something or someone doesn’t have your best interest at heart, put on your sneakers and run for your life. The exercise will be good for you.
