Detoxing your life is such an impeccable way to get rid of things that you have burdened yourself with, over the last couple of months. It puts things in perspective. There are so many things that I have been collecting over the last few months and it really gets me to the point, where I ask myself why I put myself through this all the time.
I have been doing some cleaning through all parts of my life, from people I hardly speak to, to things I don’t use anymore. I had to get rid of all the bad things to make space for the new things in my life.
First thing I did was, clean out my contact list. There were so many people I didn’t talk to anymore and I had no idea why I kept them around. They were just collecting dust anyway. Some I haven’t spoken to for three months or longer and some I spoke to just the other day. I don’t want to be around people who are toxic and add anything but positivity to my life.
Next thing I did was, unfollow and unfriend people on social media. I used to be active on social media all day, everyday. Tweeting, posting status updates, uploading pictures to sharing things that I didn’t even know why I was sharing. I think I did it because I wanted to stay relevant and see what everyone was up to 24/7. I was wrong. I just decided that people don’t have to know what I’m doing all day.
You have to realize that those people only want to see the happy things you post, until the day comes, where you post some sad status and they laugh at you behind your back. You seriously don’t need that.
I deleted friends that I just didn’t want to be around anymore. They were toxic and they didn’t add meaning in my life anymore. Just because they’re friends, doesn’t mean I have to deal with them being toxic. I can handle a lot of things, but friends who are toxic, I just can’t be around. They are not good for my mental-health or my emotional wellbeing. Toxic people have just got to go!
You have got to detox your life as much as you detox your body. Be it once a day, once a week or once a month. You can’t keep toxic people in your life and ask yourself why your life is toxic.
Sometimes you are the toxic person in your life. That’s okay. Just work on yourself. Growth and self-love baby!
Clearing out my junk drawer. By that I don’t mean the drawer in my desk, but the drawers in my mind. I tend to collect moments, memories, and feelings that gets jammed into my junk drawer to the point where I cannot fit anymore inside of it, I get overwhelmed and I have a melt down. I keep what is important, happy thoughts. I discarded of all the negative feelings I had and put them into the fire to burn.
You tend to collect so many things and store them in that drawer. You don’t realize how much you collect until you have a mental breakdown. Just keep things neat and tidy for you and your mental wellbeing. Get rid of all the thoughts and feelings that you don’t need anymore. Toxic thoughts lead to a toxic life.
I hope this post will help you when it comes to detoxing your life. It is such a healthy thing to do to keep yourself happy and positive.
