Stressed and trying to let go of unhappy toxic relationships? Maybe you have a toxic love partner? Challenging friend (aka frenemy!)? Difficult family member? Tough bad boss?
Maybe you’re dealing with a narcissist, or a liar, or passive aggressive person?
As hard as it might be – you’ve got to maintain your boundaries!
And in many cases you must let go of these crazy makers.
Right now you might be thinking “easier said than done!”
But I’ve personally dealt with some highly challenging and unreasonable people – who were truly disturbing my inner peace on a daily basis.
Finally I came to that point where I said, “Enough!”
I interviewed top psychologists and therapists (and share posts about this on my @notsalmon Instagram page!).
I read through piles of research studies on challenging personality types.
Ultimately I came up with an effective tool kit of tactics for handling toxic people.
I share these tools in my internationally loved video course, Manage And Avoid Drama Llamas.
Here’s an excerpt from Danielle Koepke
Koepke has a doctoral in Clinical Psychology PsyD and is founder of the Internal Acceptance Movement. She is one of the many respected experts who share advice and psychological tools in my video course, Manage And Avoid Drama Llamas.
Koepke offers these healing insights to let go of unhappy toxic relationships…
“You don’t ever have to feel guilty about removing toxic people from your life.
It doesn’t matter whether someone is a relative, romantic interest, employer, childhood friend, or a new acquaintance.
You don’t have to make room for people who cause you pain or make you feel small.
It’s one thing if a person owns up to their behavior and makes an effort to change.
But if a person disregards your feelings, ignores your boundaries, and continues to treat you in a harmful way, they need to go.
Not all toxic people are cruel and uncaring. Some of them love us dearly. Many of them have good intentions.
Most are toxic to our being simply because their needs and way of existing in the world force us to compromise ourselves and our happiness.
They aren’t inherently bad people. But they aren’t the right people for us.
And as hard as it is, we have to let them go.
Life is hard enough without being around people who bring you down, and as much as you care, you can’t destroy yourself for the sake of someone else.
You have to make your well being a priority.
Whether that means breaking up with someone you care about, loving a family member from a distance, letting go of a friend, or removing yourself from a situation that feels painful — you have every right to leave and create a safer space for yourself.”

If you’re struggling right now…
The fact that you’re struggling doesn’t make you a burden. It doesn’t make unlovable, not desirable, or undeserving of care. Nor does it make you too much or too sensitive or too needy. You’re simply human. Everyone struggles. We all fall apart. During these times, we are not always easy to be around. And that is okay. No one is easy to be around 100% of the time.The truth is you can be struggling and still be loved. You can be less than perfect and still be deserving of compassion and kindness.
