When you bitten by a venomous snake, you need to administer the serum to counter the poison.
Toxic environments, situations and people offer the same fate for you unless you apply the serum.
The serum in this case could be removing yourself, standing up for yourself, remaining true to what you believe in, getting help from friends and people who care about you.
What you don’t want to do is just do nothing.
That’s when the paralysis can set in.
Make sure it doesn’t.
Don’t let a toxic environment or person make you feel bad or wrong.
Apply the serum.
