10 Things You Naturally Chase Away If You're Always Chasing Toxicity
Start writing a post

If you let go of the toxic relationships, toxic friendships, etc. You will find the light and in that light you will find yourself.

If not, you will miss out on the following:

1. Happiness

Chasing toxic people will exhaust you of genuine happiness.

2. Love

With toxic people, you will never be able to experience true love. True love is patient and kind and genuine. Toxic love is detrimental and draining- everything real love isn't.

3. Opportunities

Sometimes toxicity can hold you back from bettering yourself. Such as studying or moving abroad, finding yourself, being yourself, and more.

4. Yourself

When you're wrapped up in a toxic relationship, you often lose sight of yourself- who you want to be, your dreams and aspirations, and more. It is so easy to get lost in a relationship and lose sight of yourself.

5. Family

Whether you're in a toxic relationship, toxic work or home environment, or are just generally unhappy, one major thing you can miss out on is family. It is easy to shut the ones you love the most, out as a result of a high stress, high toxic environment.

6. Self Discovery

You deserve to be selfish and being held in toxic captivity will only prevent you from discovering who you really are.

7. Being alive

Sometimes when things are too toxic, they prevent us from being alive because they suck all of the life out of us.

8. Living to your greatest potential

Toxic things and people often get in the way of you on the road to live your best life. Without these toxic things in your life, whatever they are, you have the ability to live your life how you want to, to your standards. Nobody else should matter when you're on the road to self discovery and your best life.

9. Spirituality

When toxic things have a hold on you, it's very hard to turn to whomever you believe in spiritually. It's hard because you feel trapped and locked down by toxicity that you can't even reach out to the one thing that brings you the most joy.

10. Living

When your life is consumed by toxic things and people you devote all of your energy towards that, not towards you and your needs. Ultimately, you miss out on living a life with no regrets and setbacks because you're too concerned about this person or job or college you attend that you forgot what you need to do in order to make yourself feel alive.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
