Perhaps it’s the rubbernecking theory that draws me to toxic blogs as it does a moth to a flame. Perhaps it’s just my curiosity of dumbfoundedness that draws me to read preposterous theories and nonsensical personal life stories. For whatever reason it is, starting right now, I am no longer reading or commenting on toxic blogs. I’ve deleted their URLs out of my bookmarks and I am certain by the time I wake up tomorrow morning, I won’t even remember their names.
What’s a toxic blog you might ask?
For starters a toxic blog is a blog that spreads negativity non-stop. Always angry, resentful and unhappy inside their little bubbles, they are unable to see the real world as it actually is. You can’t say anything that they themselves feel is untrue. Be prepared to be ridiculed, quite falsely I might add, if you dare to express your own thought, vision or theory. Avoid conflicts with these people at all costs. Don’t waste your time or energy engaging in the drama. Walking away from a conflict doesn’t make you weak. On the contrary, it makes you stronger.
Toxic blogs are a time waster. Big time! They don’t help you develop or grow. They just suck the life force right out of you. They’re jealous. Oh, they might chant you are the jealous one but it’s really the other way around. You’re the one who’s rock steady, focused and on track. They’re the opposite of you, floundering, distant, unsure and basically just wasting time as they search the globe for life’s meaning.
Toxic blogs love to play the victim. They’ve got a plethora of excuses and justifications for just about anything. Toxic blogs are long-winded and can rant on and on and on. They’re experts at finding ‘solutions’ to their worries that in the long run, make absolutely no sense to you at all.
Toxic blogs are self-centered, uncaring and continually disappoint. We keep thinking these people will change or discover some sort of restoration but they never do. Hanging around these people only bring you down. It is time to get rid of that blog/person. You need to stop allowing the same people to hurt and disappoint you over and over again. They are not helping you develop and grow, they are just wasting your time.
Toxic people will make you forget to see tough times as opportunities to learn and grow. They don’t take responsibility. They won’t actually say “I’m a victim”, but they will say “It’s not my fault” or “Why is it always me”. They will blame the government, a politician, a past teacher or family member for their status quo. Their life is stagnant. They don’t make any progress because they think they are powerless. They hold onto old grudges. And use them as reasons why they are how they are. They feel sorry for themselves all the time. But probably won’t show much sympathy themselves, because it is all about them. They always think that there is something missing from their life. And they are never happy or satisfied.
I’m making 2019 my positive year. I’m eliminating toxic blogs (and people) out of my life once and for all. I’m not interested in their rants or put downs or their pathetic begging for a better life all at the hands of someone else (like a politician) to get it for them.
You’ll find that the pursuit of happiness is actually simple once you’ve cut out toxic people from your life. The secret is in having the freedom to enjoy the choices you’ve made. And not let anyone tell you otherwise.
Live well and prosper, my friend. Live well and prosper.
