60 to 60: It's Okay to Walk Away
There have been a few times that I have consciously chosen to walk away from people. The pain of being in relationship finally tips over and spews out in a way that there is just no going back. That bucket is empty.
As a little girl, I certainly didn't set out to become strong in this area of life. But, here I am. Some day maybe I'll come to understand this challenge. I don't talk about it much, or with many. People don't understand, or want to. Unless you too have some estrangement in your family, or have decided to allow certain friendships/relationships to fade away, this may seem harsh, unnecessary.
I get it.
You insist, "family is family." You learn to put up with it.
Lifelong friendships/relationships are just that. Forever. Oh, just look the other way when the gaslighting starts, the under-cutting.
You exclaim, you can't cancel people, you don't walk away! That is simply not right. Nice people don't do that.
I choose to make my body/mind and spiritual health a top priority.
I can decide where my love, my energy, my attention and intention goes.
It's really okay to walk away.
