“You can never be happy if you’re always afraid to let go of what’s comfortable or familiar. Sometimes those are the things that hurt us.”
As of recently I decided to let go of some toxicity that was in my life. Honestly, I never thought this day would come. My patience was wearing thin and so was my strength. Rolling my eyes when they called me, keeping the conversations short and most importantly noticing how much I was being taken for granted and disrespected. I started to realize that I was willing to accept all of their actions towards me, because I was comfortable and sometimes what makes you comfortable isn’t always good for you.
One of the most courageous decisions you will ever make is to finally let go of what is hurting your heart and your soul. On this Self-Reliance Sunday I challenge you to begin a detox and get rid of all of the toxicity in your life. Whatever is weighing heavy on your heart and constantly stays on your mind try to let go of it. Of course it won’t be easy, but ask yourself this… Is this what you deserve? Always know your worth and know that you are worth way more than how you are being treated.
It is certainly okay to keep people in your heart but not in your life. Sometimes walking away has nothing to do with weakness and everything to do with strength. We walk away not because we want others to realize our own worth and value but because we finally realize our own.
