This week I’ve been blogging about sitting with ourselves, healing, and respecting people’s silence when they are not able to speak. While we are healing and aligning withour energy, intuition, and keeping the faith that each day we will be better, let’s not forget to recognize red flags as we communicate with others. If you don’t already know the red flags of a toxic person then please save this, print it, put it on your bathroom mirror, but don’t forget or dismiss these flags.
Every day as I talk to people in person or on the phone, I don’t care if I just met them or have known them for years, I’m aware of red flags. I’m also aware of my energy when they interact with me. The old me ignored red flags, the old me justified, made excuses, and often had compassion or sympathy for them. Great news! The new me does not tolerate, ignore, make excuses, justify or feel compassion for any red flag. I do not care what my relationship is with them. I’m so confident in the new me that I’m certain many folks do not like me now because I’m not broken to their advantage.
If we start looking for red flags then we will usually find more than one in a toxic person. If someone constantly interrupts us, then wait there will be another red flag. It could be grandiosity because they feel their words are more important. If someone is controlling us, wait they may be jealous of our time with others. If they are gaslighting us, watch I bet they don’t respect our boundaries. Toxic folks are like criminals, they usually have more than one thing on their record. Let’s heal together and recognize these red flags! 🚩
