Surround yourself with kind people.

Sometimes it’s hard to distinguish a truly good person from a toxic one.  We tend to give people the benefit of the doubt.  Most times at our own emotional expense.   A good barometer for determining whether a person is helpful or harmful in your life is by paying close attention to how they respond to your fears.  An authentic, loving and kind person will sense your fears and soothe them.  A toxic, deceptive and cruel person will target your fears and feed them.
A kind person

    This is sadly true. It has taught me to think before I speak. I was a target of evil for long enough to know that the wreckage is not easily healed.

      Yes Cindy, thinking before speaking is a challenge for me too; and many people pleasers. And true, it takes a long time to heal. But you will! Thanks so much for shouting out here. <3 Rose
