You don’t have to put up with toxic, abusive, or negative people. If you have a boss that verbally abuses you or others, or a friend who drags you down, or a business partner who sabotages you… ditch them! It can be scary to break free and find a new path forward. But life is way too short to surround yourself with these kinds of people. At the end of the day it is your choice. Ultimately, you are choosing who you surround yourself with. Or who you don’t want to be around. You can surround yourself with people who lift you up and make you better, or people who drag you down.
