First of all, I realize the title of this article is not very nice.
I’m the kind of person who never says words like “loser”. I’m an equal opportunity employer- rich, poor, fat, skinny, annoying- everyone deserves respect and kindness as far as I’m concerned.
My husband, not so much.
He has a quick radar for all things “loserish”. He was raised in a much more socially-conscious environment than I was. He’s a snob, basically.
But what I admire about his shrewdness is that he never seems to get entangled in unhealthy or draining relationships because he can spot a toxic or needy person a mile away, and will not throw an ounce of his care or energy in their direction.
He shuts it down quickly.
And I’m over here just trying to make everyone feel comfortable and loved. But deep down I’m like…
But all jokes aside, I know that we balance each other out and there are so many ways that God has used me to soften his edges, and him mine.
For me, learning to put up the right boundaries with people has taken some work- but it has been more than worth-while.
Learning how to NOT be drained by toxic, unhealthy or needy people, allows you the space and breathing room to focus on (and do a good job with) what matters.
