Stay away from people who erode your quality of life

I read an interesting article today on LinkedIn by Dr Travis Bradberry. He talks about habits that will improve your life. You need to read the article to get all of them, but I want to focus on one in particular–Stay away from people who erode your quality of life.

That is a great concept. He gives the example of being around toxic people that tend to upset you or make your blood boil. Know anyone like that? I do. And I have found myself avoiding them. I’ve been feeling guilty about that until I read this article.  Thank you, Dr Bradberry, for giving me the permission to look after my well-being rather than trying to make the other person happy.

I suggest that we all take his advice and focus on the people that deserve our attention–especially this time of year. It can be hectic and time-crunching. Let’s make every moment count!
