Tick tock. Tick tock. Time is spinning away. The sand in the hourglass is steadily dropping down. Supposedly, “The more sand that has escaped from the hourglass of our life, the clearer we should see through it”.
Here is a secret, though. If you surround yourself or are embedded within a toxic group of people, you will not have clarity and your time will be wasted.
None of us knows how many minutes we have set for our lives. One thing we should know, though, is that time should be precious. Toxic people will not be mindful of your precious time. They will just suck you into a dark abyss that contorts and mishapes your vision.
I’ve reached the point in my life where I just don’t wish to look, hear or be near toxic people. Unfortunately, I cannot be so fortunate. However, I’ve been learning to turn down the noise. Mute the toxic people around me. I want my time to be meaningful. Of course, it will not always be so. There are many times I sit on the couch with a bag of gummies watching a really bad movie. Yet, that is way more freeing than being around toxic, venomous people. If only we could swat such people away and send them out into a universe where there’s only toxic people. Then we would see toxicity bubble and stretch onto itself until it bursts.
