One of the hardest things to come to terms with is when someone is no longer good for you.
Toxic relationships develop over time and often have deep roots in your life, which make these situations hard to identify and hard to leave behind for fear of the unknown, life without insert toxic person’s name here.
The other thing about these situations that makes it tricky is that people with toxic tendencies tend to inject false hope and unrealistic expectations moving forward. Some people will come crawling back on their hands and knees spewing apology after apology – it’s all part of the game.
With each wound they tend to, there is toxicity laced up in the stitches they sew. Their hold on you grows stronger, and it gets harder and harder to leave.
If you are trying to find your way out of a toxic situation, I just want to remind you:
You are whole on your own and worthy of all the love, safety, and care in the world.
You did not bring this situation onto yourself.
If you cannot leave on your own, resources are there to help you.
Coming back from a toxic situation is hard and the healing process is almost never as easy and as smooth as we hoped it would be. No matter where you are in your healing process, it’s so important to remember how far you’ve come and how much stronger you are now.
You are unstoppable.
