The 4 Types of Negative People to Stay Away From

The 4 Types of Negative People to Stay Away From

At some point in all of our lives we will have encountered negative people, but I hope in your life you have encountered more positive than negative. Negativity is just something that comes with life, not everyone is on the same wave length or life path as you. Whether these people are in your work place, in your school class or even online, it’s important that were aware of the types of people who are out there, so that we can look out for them and avoid them. My intention with this post isn’t for it to be all negative. I think my intention here is more of a warning, for us to be all looking out for these types of people so that they don’t get a chance to infiltrate our lives.

The people you surround yourself with have such a great impact on your life, whether you think they do or not. They help to shape who you are, and the saying “you are who you surround yourself with” it’s so true. To lead a positive and fulfilling life, its important that your circle reflects you and your beliefs and morals. Negative people drag you down, they don’t lift you up.

Learning About Toxic Relationships

Learning About Toxic Relationships

[Guest Post]

Hi everyone. I’m Lima, a Relationship and Lifestyle Blogger and I happen to love tasting the waters, so I have made a lot of mistakes as a Christian. I am not exactly proud of everything I have been through that’s why I teach people how to avoid them. You can read all about it here.

I remember sitting in my room and looking through the wedding invites I have for the remainder of this year, some I have to attend and others I can just watch from home. I was delighted at first about the union until I thought about the number of people that might end up rushing into relationships just because they have one or two friends that are about to say I do or are a happy couple. This still remains the major reason people try to tolerate a toxic relationship, and try to manage the hits.

Why Long Distance Friendships Are Worth It

Why Long Distance Friendships Are Worth It

For most of my adult life I have had long distance friendships. Me and my friends maintain a pretty regular friendship with 4,000+ miles between us. We met when they came here to the UK from America. They came here for a semester (around 4 months) to study and work at the church I attend. Long distance friendships, similar to long distance relationships can be hard to maintain but I’m here today to tell you why they are so worth it.

How to Lovingly Let Go of Friendships

How to Lovingly Let Go of Friendships

I wrote a post a few weeks ago called ‘How to Lovingly Let Go of Relationships” and it mainly focused on relationships in the sense of romantic relationships. And I thought it would be good to talk on the subject again, but this time about friendships in particular. I think at times when friendships end it can be harder than relationships, depending on the reasoning behind the friendship ending.

Letting go of any type of relationship isn’t easy, especially when you can feel that things have shifted or changed between you. I hope to make it easier for you by going through some advice from when I have been through it myself. Its not easy letting go of anything, but we should do things in love always.

Make sure that you read both of our blog posts. My blog currently features posts on love & relationships, healthy habits and mental health.

Sweetening our selves for some other person’s taste can often be tempting, especially when we are romantically interested in them.

Here are some significant ways to love yourself equally in a relationship.
