If you have been following my blog or YouTube channel for a while, you know that The Law of Attraction and positive thinking is not a fad but a religion to me. I pride myself in living a very positive life and use my blog and channel to share it with others. You have probably heard (or read) me say many times the importance of ridding our lives of people who bring us down. You know the ones I am talking about- the debbie downers, or constant one uppers. People so toxic, they have the power to zap all our positive energy with a single brief encounter.
In the past few years I have been doing very good with letting toxic friendships go. Even ending a 14 year old friendship that had taken a very negative turn over the years. Despite this major "clean up" in my life, I find myself surrounded by a new type of nuisance. I will call them "the friendly bullies next door." These are the people that no matter how hard you try will not take no for an answer. They have learned the art of bullying people into a friendship. Often coming at you with things like "what's wrong? You don't want to talk to me anymore." Or "are you ignoring me?" Even going as far as guilting you by things like "I don't have any friends." Lesson learned: Beware of people who don't have any friends! When you do talk to them, be prepared for the battlefield. They will question your life choices, your relationships, your parenting skills, yet insist on always hanging out or doing things together. Forget about ever getting them to accept you for the way you are.
Unfortunately, I have a few people in my life that I know are toxic, but they have mastered the art of guilting me into spending them with them. Time that will often leave me with a major headache afterwards because I have spend the day either defending myself or trying to cheer them up. Nothing is ever good enough for them, complaining has become second nature. I learned a long time ago that it is not worth the effort in trying to "fix" or "cure" them of their disease. If only I could muster up enough courage to actually say "Yes, I'm ignoring you and no we can't hang out" the next time they ask!
How do you handle such situations? Do you have toxic people in your life? Join the discussion at www.facebook.com/realhousewifeofsc

Many of you have requested a sample of what I eat on my new found Blood Type Diet. I have tried many diets in the past but this has been by far the easiest and most beneficial to follow! I am including some pictures for inspiration. I am a blood type O and have been following this diet for about 2 months now. On average I stick with it 95% of the time, allowing myself a few cheats here and there.
I start the morning with some Seltzer Water and 2 tablespoons of Chia seeds.
My Favorite Breakfast: Eggs, Ezekiel 100% Sprouted Bread, Berries and Tazo Tea
This is the only bread I only myself on this Diet since Blood type O’s are wheat and gluten sensitive. I will generally eat 2-3 servings a week.
Below are some of my favorite snacks:
Lightly steamed Broccoli with 1 teaspoon of mozzarella cheese and hot sauce!
A few other favorites: Carrots, Bananas, and Mangos!
My favorite drink: Seltzer water!
And now for some meals. Since I keep the portions fairly decent, these work for both lunch and dinner:
Brown rice, broccoli, and masala fish
Brown rice, meat curry, and carrots
Steak, steamed broccoli & carrots with mozzarella cheese
Quinoa, broccoli, and masala fish
Brown rice, beef curry, and veggies
**Everything was cooked with olive oil
Some tips and tricks:
*If you have trouble with portion control – use a salad plate instead of a dinner plate.
*Fill up half your plate with veggies and save the other half for your carbs and proteins.
*Eat 6 small meals instead of 3 large ones.
