Caregivers: Time to Say Goodbye! How to Eliminate Toxic People From Your Life

March 23 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm CDT


There’s an old myth that frogs will pull down other frogs trying to escape a pot of boiling water. That’s likely the stuff of folklore, but the dynamic is real: In everyone’s life, there will always be people who will resist, threaten and sabotage the possibility of self-improvement. There are always people in our lives who stand in the way of our self-improvement. As caregivers, we all want to hit the “Easy Button” as we have to consolidate our energies for “the marathon” ahead.

Stress reduction is all about our ability to emotionally self-regulate but realize any improvement must be done in healthy relationships and families.

The general group of people — whom sometimes we can safely call “toxic” — might resent your progress for any number of reasons. For caregivers, these people are literally “energy vampires” at a time when we need to consolidate and enrich our energies. Perhaps they think you’ll no longer be in their life if you improve too much. Maybe they feel like your improvement exposes their own shortcomings. Or perhaps they’re just threatened by the idea of change. These “people” may be close or long distant caregivers or they may literally be in our communities we seek peace and serenity from.

Join Dr. Jamie as he joins hands with you to facilitate your growth, self-improvement and mental health by offering an important strategy for your emotional wellbeing and life’s journey.
