It is at our weakest times that we must learn how to be strong. The moments in our lives when we feel like we can no longer hang on anymore. As strong, independent women, we must be able to realize how to let go of anything that no longer benefits ourselves for the better.
Friendships as well as romantic relationships are the toughest to get out of especially if we have invested a lot of time and effort in them. Change can seem scary at first and doing what is best for ourselves is not always the easiest, but letting go of anyone or anything that is toxic in our life is vital to our own personal well being and happiness. How do you know when enough is enough? Here’s how to know when it’s time to walk away.
There can be plenty of reasons to get away from a certain type of person or even situation that is harmful to our mental and physical health. In a relationship, we sometimes convince ourselves to stick it out even if we are not truly happy. As women, we want to be loyal and there for the one we are with, but the truth is, we cannot forget about our own self-worth and all of the happiness we deserve. If your relationship is full of physical or verbal abuse, constant fighting, anger, yelling or crying, that is how you know it is time to walk away.
When it comes to friends, we can find ourselves being around and associating ourselves with people who we actually do not care about. Friendships should never be forced, bought or manipulated into. A friend is someone who will like you for simply being you. You should never have to try hard to be friends with a group of people. If you see that a friend of yours disrespects you and takes advantage of you at any time, they are not and will never be a good friend. It’s time to walk away.
Sometimes, we find ourselves holding onto people who no longer serve a purpose to us. They are not meant to stay around, but simply a lesson to be learned. It’s important to remember that it’s okay to let go or walk away from anything that is harmful in anyway. Do not be afraid to let them go. After you have done this, you can now begin to be open up to all the possibilities life has to offer. It’s hard to let go, but as soon as you let the bad out, you can allow yourself to open up to the good. Life is too short to be unhappy, so remember to live each day to its fullest with peace and no regrets.
