“I will not let anyone walk through my mind with their dirty feet.”
This is my favorite quote from your piece. I think it is so important, but also so hard to do to not let other people “pollute” your life. It takes a lot of courage to remove toxic people from your life but it’s hugely beneficial.
I you’re not able to actually remove them from your life (for instance at a workplace), you need to make it a habit to ignore this person in your environment, or to keep your interactions with this person to a minimum.
You decide how people make you feel, just like you decide how you react to a bad weather. It might be pouring rain outside, but as long as it stays sunny in your heart, you’ll be able to move forward.
Thanks for this article Omar Itani, keep up the great work!
