10 Things You Naturally Chase Away If You're Always Chasing Toxicity

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.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
