Making the hard choices

Making the hard choices Choosing to honour our fundamental values, and honouring how we want to live, and with whom, requires having the courage and the strength to say no to  people who do not share our values or do not support or respect who we are. No matter what they represent in our lives, we do not have to tolerate or stay around people who discredit us, who make us feel unworthy of their love, or who use us simply to get what they want and need, without any consideration for what we want and need.

Several times, I have had to walk away from relationships that had a negative impact on me and my life. The closer the relationship, the more difficult it was to make that choice.

Walking away from the relationships required that I make choices that were not fear-based. Fear had kept me in these relationships for years. And the more I tried to make them work, the more they diminished my energy, my self-worth and my joie-de-vivre. Needless to say, they were not working out at all.

The fear of losing someone, of being alone, of disappointing others, or of not making it on our own are some of the fears that keep us imprisoned in dysfunctional relationships.
