Friends or enemies? Life does not always reserve for us happy encounters, sometimes we happen to find on our way people who over time turn out to be negative and who end up wearing down our feelings. The Indian Armadillo Tale teaches us how to get away from toxic people.




Breaking up is better, but easier said than done. Enemies can have many faces and we are not always able to recognize them at first sight. The toxic relationship can be hidden behind a friendship, a love or even in our subconscious.

In terms of friendship, the list of negative people can be quite long. There are the victimizers, those who judge us without mercy, the perpetually dissatisfied or those who want to have control over us at any cost.

Even on the level of love, not everything always goes according to our expectations. Toxic love is what leads us to give up our passions, our friends and which locks us up under a glass dome.

But you know, time heals all wounds.

What does this symbolic animal say?

That in our life there will be many obstacles to overcome, but that our inner self also knows how to find the balance and the strength to face them. The armadillo, despite being a small animal, is the most armored there is, which is why it can survive the enemies.



So let's learn to create our little armor that must not become a barrier nor should it lead to general distrust, it is only a film to defend ourselves from those who do not really love us.
