… If you drink much from a bottle marked ‘poison’, it is almost certain to disagree with you, sooner or later.
You deserve to treat yourself well. You deserve to inhibit what is not good for you. You do not need to try what is bad for you, to know that it is not for you. No longer do what is not in your best interest. You have a habit or two that you would do well to let go of. You have people in your life that you keep giving time and space to, despite knowing you will suffer afterwards, that you will again be upset and disturbed by their harshness, their unkindness.
Poison does not only come in bottles. It comes in the form of others who hurt us, deliberately or even without their knowledge. It can simply be that they are not for you, and you are not for them. Poison comes in the form of words which hurt and harm, that fall from your lips or which are spoken about you by others.
There are situations you know may hurt or endanger you. There are substances which could be toxic for you and you do not need to have them in your life anymore. It is time to eradicate that which can poison you. It is not cruel to refuse to hurt yourself. You will be astonished at the energy you will have once you remove these toxins from your life.
Avoid toxic situations, people or relationships. Do not partake in what you know is not best for you. Ending harmful relationships, changing toxic habits or improving your nutrition and health regime. A clean out from your home and pantry of substances, foods, even fabrics that can ‘poison’ your personal environment. Changing unhealthy harmful thoughts and beliefs about yourself and refusing to speak ill of others. Choosing to encourage, support and lead through kindness and strength.
