People Who Lift You Higher

 Always be careful of gossip and how you treat others. 

Nobody owes you happiness, service doesn't come with conditions, you must take responsibility for your own happiness and your own life. 

There has to be boundaries in your life from people who always bring you down. I've been reading this book "Boundaries" and have been learning how to set boundaries in my own life against toxic and controlling people. I choose to limit my interaction with people who bring me down.  These are ways I am striving to be a healthy adult and mother.
I stumbled upon this great article that I wanted to save in my blog journal as a reminder that you always reap what you sow.

Great thoughts~
This can be such a hard thing to master, especially when the toxic person is a family member!

I needed this today. So much.
In fact.. I am going to bring my husband back to read it too.

Thanks for sharing this bit of wisdom today. Happy Weekend!

I think that there are many many forms of this with the people we know in life. Toxic people are everywhere - Yikes! I have learned how to deal with it as I have gotten older and as I have become more Christlike.
It has been easier for me to just let things roll than in years past (I used to get my feelings hurt an awful lot). I think that is why, in part, there was the council to not be offended a few years back. But Holy Moly it can be hard sometimes!
This looks like a great book. I will have to check it out!

My husband and I took this class and it was the best class we could have ever taken. Everyone should take this class because you have to set boundaries with family, in the workplace, with your children among many other things. Life has been so much easier and now I'm passing on what I've learned to my daughter. It's ok to say no.
