Best Life Logo By Sarah Crow of Best Life | Slide 2 of 21: While cutting loose people you’ve known for years can be a daunting prospect, doing so can make you far happier in the long run. “Toxic people can plant seeds of doubt in your mind, make you say yes when you want to say no, push you away from your priorities and just downright make you feel negative. If you want to be happy, you have to rid of or set boundaries with these people so that you can have more confidence, joy and success,” says Dr. Kulaga.“Take inventory of the top people you surround yourself with. Do you share similar goals and values with them? Do they instill inspiration in you and motivate you to be better? Do they want the best for you? If the answer to any of these questions is no, it is time for an immediate detox in your life! Remember, you are who you associate with.”
