In order to live a life of abundance, positivity, and love, we MUST surround ourselves with things and people of abundance, positivity and love as well. Must. There's just no way around it. In the past couple days, some of you asked me HOW? How we do we say goodbye to those people? How do we close those chapters of our lives for good in order to live the life truly meant for us? Let's start with this:
Take a deep breath and find an appropriate time to talk. Keep the dialogue short, sweet, respectful, and to the point.
"I care about you and our friendship/relationship but this toxic cycle of you letting me down/ignoring my boundaries/disrespecting me is not something I'm willing to revisit again. At this point, I think we should wish each other the best and go our own separate ways."
Again, this dialogue may differ depending on your specific situation but I have learned that the shorter you keep it, the better. If you're truly ready to let go and move on, no matter what the person's response is, it won't make a difference at this point. And if they continue to initiate dialogue with you via social media, text, email, etc. [or better yet, pretend like that conversation never even happened] I've learned:
"Sometimes it's better to react with no reaction."
Respect yourself. Stay strong. And good luck. Have you had the "letting go" conversation? Feel free to share experiences you've had in the comments below!
