It’s not so much who you know as it is who you avoid. — Anon.
Their are foods that are toxic to an individual’s system, and the doctor’s advice is avoid the food or beverage that is toxic.
There are people who who are toxic for another, but I think it is sometimes harder to avoid that individual than for an alcoholic to avoid alcohol. Guilt plays a huge part. We are taught to love one another, but what happens when someone is bad for us?
It might seem easier for someone who is in an abusive relationship, but talk to a person who is being abused and they will tell you how difficult ending an abusive relationship is.
Maybe the relationship isn’t abusive, but is still not good for you — you drink to much, you act out and certainly act out of character, or simply you are not your best when you are with that person.
The individual may not be toxic for others, perhaps others are jealous of the relationship you have, not seeing it is unhealthy. There are so many situations like this.
You can still love and admire someone, and yet know you must avoid that individual. If you feel you are in such a relationship avoidance is a therapy that may save your life.
