It’s hard to walk away

It’s hard to walk away, but you must! You have to make sure that you’re not holding on out of ego. You have to be sure that you’re not trying to raise an adult or change a person who is unwilling to change. It’s not about you, it’s about them. It’s not that you’re not worthy of love. It’s that they aren’t ready to learn how to love. You have to recognize that and be willing to walk away.

Sometimes it’s the walking away part that makes a person change. If you’ve left before and it didn’t influence them to change then the next time you leave it needs to be for good.

We waste so much unnecessary time trying to make love work. You have to be willing to admit when you didn’t know love and you built on lust instead. You have to be willing to cut your losses, learn your lesson(s), and move on stronger and wiser. You can’t force love and you shouldn’t have to.

Love is a gift not a curse. Don’t live a cursed life by trying to hold onto a lie. Evaluate your situation. If you know you’ve done all you can to make it work and it hasn’t, let it go. Love is waiting for you but you can’t attract it if you’re still tied to a lie.

I pray you find the strength to leave if you know you need to leave!

  2. Reblogged this on Random Thoughts and commented:
    This really hit home for me. I’ve been living a lie for almost 2 years and last year I reached my breaking point. I was finally able to admit to myself and to the other person that it is time to let go. I was holding on out of fear but I realized I was also blocking my blessings. I let go of all the negative thoughts and feelings and stopped entertaining the nonsense. This chapter of my life may be coming to an end but the next chapter is already off to an amazing start.


  3. Needed to hear his but I need to find the inner strength for me and my boys to let their father know that he has to go. The relationship has been over for the past four years, and I am tired! I am tired of his presence just being there. I am tired of raising a grown adult and wishing he just found his place elsewhere and moved on. But I need to believe in myself love myself and entrust that their is so much more that will lead to the happiness I miss and seek in my life.
