02 Jun Are You Hanging On To Toxic Relationships?
“Do not let the behavior of others destroy your inner peace”‘ – Dalai Lama
Sometimes we feel like we are obligated to be around people who are not enriching or empowering to our lives. This is not so. The greatest gift you can give to the world is your own joy, peace and compassion.
Being in a constant battle to maintain your own high vibration with a person who is determined to hang on to their lower vibration does not serve either person. Make it OK to walk away from people who steal your joy.
Love them, forgive them, wish them well and be on your way. Even a family member. It’s OK to love them from afar.
Other times we may be in a relationship that does not serve us, but we cannot let go out of fear. Fear of the unknown, of being alone, that we may never find someone else to be with. We can choose to stay in the familiar and safe-feeling misery or to move on into the unknown and scary potential for our lives. It is never wise to make decisions out of fear, so examine your heart and see what is driving your decisions.
Remember today, that your greatest gift to the world is joy, and that you are not obligated to invest your energy in relationships that don’t serve you. Give yourself permission to let go of these relationships, move on in your own journey in love and peace, forgiveness and freedom.
You are creating your life! Choose your thoughts, your words and your actions and create a life you truly LOVE living!
