Opinion: Avoiding some individuals for emotional well-being isn't a weakness.


**This blog post is trying to explain the quote based on my opinion, thoughts, and thinking.

"Avoiding certain people to protect your emotional health is not weakness; it is wisdom." —unknown

It's difficult to be vulnerable around people. It can take a lot of courage to share your thoughts, feelings, and personal life with someone else. And you should never feel pressured to do so too early in a relationship. Sometimes it can even come across as being too needy or desperate if you're the first one sharing how you feel in some type of relationship development stage.

But as you get older and grow as a person, you learn that it's not easy to share with other people. And when someone tries to force you to open up or pushes you too far into being vulnerable with them, you can end up getting hurt.

But what if the other party is the one trying to be vulnerable? What happens then? Does that make it right?

That's where being selective comes in. Another person's vulnerability towards you doesn't necessarily mean that they should be accepted or even tolerated. If someone's actions are causing you emotional pain and discomfort, it would be best to avoid them instead of dealing with their toxicity.

And disallowing yourself to be vulnerable to that person isn't a weakness. It just means you're putting your emotional health first.

It's important to know when to be selective about the people in your life. And it's been said that everyone needs a little space in relationships. You shouldn't feel obligated or forced into sharing every thought and feeling with someone else, especially if they're toxic and are only trying to bring you down emotionally.

The people in our lives are supposed to be there for us. They're supposed to be emotionally supportive and uplifting from time to time. There's no need to constantly share everything that you feel and think with them as well.

You should always remember that what a person thinks of you is based on the way you think of yourself. And if they find themselves being a constant source of emotional wounds, then it's best to avoid them altogether.

You should be aware when someone isn't good for you and make it a priority to avoid them.

Being selective about the people in your life is not only hard work, but it can also be exhausting. It's tough to deal with a constant barrage of emotional pain and being vulnerable to someone who doesn't care about you.

But it's important to always put yourself first and to think about why you're in a relationship before you jump into it. It's best not to get too comfortable with someone because they once said or did something nice.

And when it comes right down to it, you shouldn't feel obliged to share your innermost thoughts and feelings with someone just because they hold that special place in your heart.

Friends are there to listen to you, support you, and help you through the bad times in life. And when it comes down to it, they aren't there to take care of your emotional well-being and happiness.

It's a relationship that should be built on trust and honesty. But if someone is constantly putting you down, being annoying, and making you feel unsafe or uncomfortable, then it's best to avoid them altogether.

Feel free to share your thoughts and opinions on this.
