I’ve been reading a lot of great sayings and quotes on Facebook lately.  Most of those attracting my attention have to do with relationships and letting go of people in your life who are toxic, and how when the wrong people are gone, the right things start to happen.  What exactly is a toxic relationship?  Are people actually toxic?  No, I mean, barring being subjected to copious amounts of radiation, they get along out there in the world, with other people. They have jobs.  They have kids, and even friends.  So, what exactly constitutes toxic and why? And to whom are they toxic?  

 And what about them is wrong??  I don’t really believe that there are wrong people in our lives.  I believe we are all here, in each others’ lives, for a reason.  Maybe we get to know what that reason is right away, but more often not.  More often we can’t figure out at first, why we are attracted to this or that person? Especially when we realize that we need to not be hanging out with said person.  

What IF, though, we looked at every single person as a gift?  What if we acknowledge that we’ve chosen to be on this earth plane, in the world of form, to further our evolution, and that these people, all of our peeps throughout our lives, are a valuable part of our journey?  What if we simply paid attention to how we feel when we are with people and trusted our feelings, and chose to stay or go, now or later? What if there were no judgment about them?  And we also didn’t judge ourselves for our choices?  

Just asking.
