Yes, relationships. It all boils to relationships (not the taco, thou.) 😉
I will be sharing the taco recipe today along with this post… Ingredients first.
2 cups hydrated hibiscus flower
2 red tomatoes, diced
¼ white onion finely chopped
1 jalapeno or serrano chili pepper, finely diced
¼ cup coriander (cilantro)
½ teaspoon olive oil
1 jicama in very thin slices (these are your tortillas)
Salsa, and lime juice
As for the toxic relationship: a person exhibiting toxic behaviors and another person buying in them. PERIOD.
You might have noticed that on my other posts I stress three things: a behavior, someone buying in and an unhealthy dance or toxic relationship they have.
Again, it takes two to tango. Maybe because of my background as a humanistic counsellor, in Gestalt and on Robbinss-Madanes training I tend to focus on empowerment and the possibility of healing. I typically do not tag others and do not diagnose in my coaching or in my practice. That’s for Psychiatrists, and DSM V criteria. But I.Don’t.Do.That.
Break the pattern. Yes, you heard me well, break the pattern. And I will set forth three roads for you to choose from, because I believe what Tony says, a choice implies at least three options.
One. Leave the scene or the relationship. On the leave part you can do it either physically or emotionally. Be bolder and do both? I know some of these relationships might be family, so the emotional part (even the physical one) might be difficult and seem impossible.
Two. Learn to laugh at yourself and take things with humor. Chances are the offender might be caught off track and either stop in the turmoil come back with a vengeance. Still take it with humor, as you’ve been warned.
Three. Observe from love. Yes, you heard well, from love, specifically SELF-LOVE. Instead of understanding and making puzzles around THEIR behavior. Take a step back, pause and love yourself more. That’s the first step to be unhooked from it all.
Ah, the taco recipe:
How to make the tacos:
- Put the hibiscus to boil in water for 5 to 8 minutes at medium to high heat. (You can use the concentrated tea that comes from its boiling and keep it to prepare hibiscus water, a Mexican delicacy).
- Dice the hibiscus in fine chops.
- Rinse in tap water. If the hibiscus is still a bit stiff, set it to boil for another 5 to 8 minutes.
- In a hot pan, warm a bit of oil and cook for the tomato, the onion and the chili peppers for 5 minutes, if you don’t want for it to be a hot dish you can remove the seeds from the peppers or not add them at all.
- Add the diced hibiscus flower, the coriander and a pinch of salt and pepper.
Take steps forward to get out of the toxic relationships and you will see your life improve.
You will notice an increase of happiness, energy and positivity in your life. Sooo… #StepUp
It’s your time to #RISE to #RAWR and #Live2Soar.
See? Now you can enjoy better relations hips, AND healthier tacos!!!
Oh, oh, serve the hibiscus in the jicama and enjoy your tacos. You can add salsa, the lime juice or go bold and add guacamole!
Have an awesome weekend!
