It’s never easy to cut someone out of your life. And when it comes to family, it’s especially hard to accept that a family member is causing so much stress, anxiety, and pain that you can’t continue to have a relationship with them.
Toxic ties may come from your ancestors and are often related to specific patterns and trauma. Someone’s bad behavior and low vibration actions may be a matter of genes.

Communicate about your boundaries and discuss the consequences that come from violating them. If some people push your boundaries too often, it’s okay to say goodbye and make sure they understand your reasons for doing so. Don’t give people the negative attention they hope for and take control of your emotions.
You don’t need people who constantly judge your life choices. Listen to what they have to say, but make sure they realize that you don’t like to judge others or be judged. Help those people understand that they are doing a bad thing.
Be their best example. Share articles about people who have done good for society or tell your judgmental friends or family members about your charitable donations.
When one of your relatives criticizes you all the time, help them understand how you feel. What are their motives? If they keep doing that, just step aside and stay away from them.
They never apologize
Some people just won’t apologize for anything they do. If you don’t get an apology, tell them how it makes you feel and make sure they understand that you need an apology. If your friends or family members don’t want to acknowledge their part in a situation, pay attention to their attitude and make changes accordingly.
They are always in trouble
Everyone needs peace and stability. Some people just can’t stay away from trouble. Try to help them, but don’t lose your self-respect. Help them learn from their mistakes and improve their situation. They should never try to gain negative attention through their troubles.
They are not consistent
If some of your relatives make you feel like you’re walking on eggshells, tell them how you feel. Letting someone manipulate and control you is the worst thing you can do. Acknowledge their problem and express yourself. We all deserve better.
Tell them how you expect to be treated. If they cross the boundary, explain their mistake and share your feelings.
Reciprocation is an important part of every relationship. Having selfish people around you doesn’t really help much. Some people are just too focused on themselves and aren’t even aware of it. Self-centered people often take you for granted and may even walk all over you.
Spend more time with people who support and take care of you. Some people may need a hand in realizing their mistakes, and you are here to help them. You can sometimes turn a toxic relationship into something great. Don’t let others disrespect you and tell them how you want to be treated.
