Dear Friends of The Sunny Center,
At a time when it seems so many people in the world are expressing so much anger and hatred, how do you maintain your balance? How do you approach a close friend or family member who is toxic, and still do so from a place of love?
In today’s video offering, we address how to interact compassionately with loved ones who are toxic.
Choice plays a big role in all of our lives. People who tend to become toxic during personal interactions choose to go to that place. You can choose to not go to that place. And you can make that choice without spiraling into anger or sadness, but from a place of calm.
Tell Us Your Story
Watch the video above, and then join us on social media at Instagram, Facebook or Twitter. How have you dealt with toxicity in your life? Are you struggling to connect with a toxic person? Do you struggle with toxic feelings of anger and negativity within yourself?
In our work with Exonerees, we sometimes encounter toxicity because Exonerees have been through so much, and even when they are exonerated and free they still have a hard time. Especially when the euphoria of exoneration wears off. The realities of life come crashing down.
At The Sunny Center we try to make this transition easier for Exonerees, by providing not just a place of beauty to begin recovery and healing from the trauma of incarceration, but also connecting them with other Exonerees as well as key resources such as therapists, social workers and agencies to get them housing, food and medical care. These are all incredibly important steps to help Exonerees make that journey from a place of great sadness and anger to a fulfilling life that is as normal as possible.
