If there’s someone in your life who’s draining your energy or causing you stress, you could be dealing with a toxic relationship. Good health goes beyond just nutrition and exercise. It comes from achieving balance in every area in our lives. That includes the emotional and social parts of our lives, too!

For me, this was just an embarrassing part of my life that I needed to hide from everyone around me.
