I reserve the right to out grow you, cut you off, and move on with my life. No amount of time in a friendship, familyship, nor relationship will make me stay once your chapter has ended in my life! ??And since I do not take this decision lightly, I know that once I cut you off…I will have no regrets. Sometimes you got to go because I can no longer relate to you. Sometimes you have to go because you are just a toxic bitter person and there’s no room in my life for the crap you have going on.?? Folks will try to make me feel guilty for cutting them off but truth be told…they made their bed and now they must lie in it. I have no hard feelings about it and neither should you! This applies to anyone from a toxic parent to a toxic mate! Sometimes you got to just love people from afar and wish them the best! Do not feel like just because someone is related to you or the fact you have been friends for 20 years that you should keep putting up with someone that is providing too much negativity in your life. Life is about growth and a quest for happiness. You do not get extra points for keeping someone in your life that drains you! As a matter of fact, transference of energy almost guarantees that some of that negativity will rub off on you and then all of a sudden you will start to doubt God’s promise to you! Life is what you make it. You cannot let people steal your joy because they have been around a long time! You must walk in faith and let go when you feel it’s time. Do not let folks emotionally blackmail you into staying in a certain place and time with them. You have every right to out grow them. You have every right to move on. The thing to keep in mind though is as you pull away…some folks will try to trigger you into a place of anger because any response is better than no response. ?Those are the moments when you have to try to rise above it and stay in faith. I have to admit…I struggle with rising above a negative situation but in 2017…I am doing my best to not give those situations any deference in my life. I see the text messages, I get the voicemails, and even when provoked in person…I do my best to not respond to all the mess. But I am only human. Sometimes that transference of energy does work. Those will be the times to regroup and remain in faith. Remember that some people are so buried in a dark place…they don’t even know it! ?? I don’t care if they wake up every day announcing how happy they are…if they have to weigh you down with their “happiness”…walk away. Save yourself and infuse your life with positivity. ~KJM on Flashback Friday saying I’m so glad I have a Higher Power. Without faith, I just do not know where I would be. What God does no man ever can! ??
