Setting boundaries is so important. You can't allow others to put you in a position where you are being taken advantage of. You can't allow toxic or negative people in your life on a daily basis because they will drain your energy. Spending time around toxic and negative people can bring you down and affect your life in many ways. Surround yourself with more positive and like minded people. Surround yourself with those who support you and not those who drain you. If you find yourself always going out of your way to be there for someone yet they never show up for you, it may be time to rethink that relationship. One- sided friendships are very draining. You deserve to have a solid circle of people in your life and not those who bring you down. Set those boundaries to protect yourself.
