Be Brave Enough to Leave When There Is Nothing Left to Hold Onto
Sometimes having the courage that you need to have is much easier said than done. We all want to be strong and stand up for ourselves but most of the time we can’t actually do it or don’t know how to go about it.
When it comes to relationships many of us hold on for far longer than we should. We stick with someone either because we care or because we are vulnerable. We know there is nothing left for us to really hold onto and yet we still cling.
We need to find our bravery and be more willing to let go of toxic situations and toxic people. While it is hard to face something new, it is worth it. Knowing when to leave and when to stay is beneficial to all who are involved.
Sometimes its terrifying to move forward away from someone who has been so close to you for so long but staying is only going to tear you apart more. Why is it as human beings we tend to put our own needs behind those of everyone else? Why is it considered selfish to leave toxic people in the past?
Far too often we are afraid to let go, to move on. We worry that we won’t find anyone else to be with, and we stress over how to find balance in our lives and where to even go. We refuse to dive into the unknown because it is exactly that, the unknown. We let things pile up and take so much damage, all for the sake of what?
Sure, being ripped apart from the person you put so much into is devastating but being in a damning position like that is only putting yourself at stake. Cutting ties is something that has to be done sometimes. Just because it’s painful doesn’t mean you should hide from it. As difficult as being courageous is, it has to be done.
You should never stay with someone when you’ve already lost everything worth holding onto. You shouldn’t force yourself to be with someone you don’t want to be with and you damn sure shouldn’t let anyone abuse or take advantage of you. Rebuilding your life is going to be hard but it won’t be impossible.
Sometimes you have to spend some time lost to find your true self. There is nothing wrong with doing a little exploring. Sometimes the hardest decisions to make are the most worth making.
We only get one life, why waste it on someone that is already moving on or someone that refuses to treat you right? Get out in the world and find something that makes you feel worthwhile. You don’t have to be in a relationship to be happy.
True happiness comes from within. You are enough, don’t ever let anyone make you feel like you’re just an option. You don’t have to cling to the things you’re used to, you can find something even better if you break free and move forward.
