Toxic relationships have a nature that is harmful to our emotional and mental health, and will ultimately destroy us if we continue in it. Be aware; you can seldom repair it. It is not impossible, but it may be next to impossible. It has a great deal to do with the toxic person's desire and ability to change. If they are not changing, then you cannot invite them into your life. When something is toxic, it is poison and becomes deadly. Its destructive nature causes constant stress and poisons us every time we interact with it. History just keeps on repeating itself.
The only thing you can do with some toxic relationships is to contain it by distancing yourself. From time to time, you might interact on a superficial level, but if it still explodes, you may have to distance yourself permanently. However, before we move on, we must realize the proper way to cultivate lasting relationships. If we center our relationships around Christ, everything else will fall in place.
