So I just blocked an acquaintance who never fails to send me sh*tty little jabbing tweets. They said something snarky about a post of mine & I said "So?" They responded with a string of invective--remember, we were friends. It made my heart race (bad for me) and face flush.
I started to write three separate responses.
Then a DM.
Then I just said--does this give me joy?

I've got #cancer--that's toxic enough.
I don't need toxicity in my personal space.
I don't need to take abuse from anyone.
I'm saying this because I want you to learn from it.
I blocked them.
I realized I had spent a couple years putting up with that behavior because I felt guilty.

Remember that you own your energy.
It's a gift.
Don't give it to just anyone.
Don't be manipulated.
Push that toxicity away.
It's freeing.
It will give you joy.
