Let’s talk about the relationships in our lives. How do you know if you are you attached to a relationship that has gone stale? Let’s explore some scenarios…
⛔Do you feel like you cannot be open and honest with this person, that you cannot share your real thoughts and feelings? Kinda feels like you’re walking on eggshells.
⛔Do you feel like you are giving a lot more than you are receiving?
⛔Does this relationship leave you feeling drained?
These are all signs that it’s time to let go of this connection because it has expired. It’s not always easy to let go, I struggle with this myself! But sometimes you just outgrow certain relationships in your life. This is any kind of relationship–friends, family, romantic. It doesn’t make sense to keep someone in your life who is hindering your progress, draining your energy, and not giving back. It doesn’t necessarily mean that they are a bad person! It just means that the connection between the two of you is no longer serving either of you.
Take inventory of the relationships in your life and ask yourself these questions to decide if it is time to move on. Releasing is just as much a part of life as connecting. And the quality of your relationships can have a huge impact on your life.
