Walking Away from Unhealthy Relationships – Part 1

On the road to happily ever after, there’s always another bus.

If you clicked on this post, I’m guessing you are on a quest to let go of an unhealthy relationship or find help dealing with rejection. Hopefully, this post will help you make the right decision.

Let’s be honest, majority of us have all, at one point or another, had to deal with rejection in relationships. However, the truth is, rejection is a part of life.

Without rejection, we will never truly experience the goodness of being accepted. Rejection creates opportunities for change; makes us reevaluate ourselves, motivates us to do better and most especially, it helps us understand how we want/need to be treated.

Unhealthy relationships usually can come in two different forms; emotional (mental) and physical abuse. Both are horrible. It drains your soul. You find yourself constantly depressed even when you are in your supposed happy place.

Without sounding like a motivational speaker, it’s time to look at yourself in the mirror and shout “IT’S TIME”. Not tomorrow but NOW!

Are You Ready To Let Go?

No matter how many times your loved ones tell you to walk away, moving on is a choice you will have to make on your own and for yourself.  You will need to decide whether you want to continue to dwell on things outside your control or let go and make way for new beginnings.

I came across an inspirational quote the other day, it read, “A clear rejection is always better than a fake promise.”

This got me thinking about how we fight tooth and nail to hold on to people that have no intention of being held down; how many of us lose out on true love while clinging on to unhealthy relationships. Endure hate and abuse just because our culture dictates it. How we constantly change our behaviours, hobbies, needs and desires just to stay in a relationship.

How about what you want? Does it not matter?

You were not created to suffer abuse. Know your worth in people’s lives and act accordingly.

Relationships are full of ups and downs but through it all, we all need to be reminded of our self-worth. We need to know when:

  1. To love
  2. To tolerate
  3. Compromise and
  4. When to walk away

When someone does not reciprocate your love, then it’s time to move on. It’s not arrogance, it’s called Self Respect! Redirect the love you have for that person right back to yourself. Learn to love yourself again,

You deserve it!

Your happiness is your priority. If you are happy, you would positively impact others around you. But if you are unhappy, it affects a whole lot such as self-worth, self-esteem, mental health, physical health etc. You become bitter and start to rub off on people the wrong way.

It’s like you become a whole new person you don’t recognise or want to be.

You need to be happy!
