FACE THE RIGHT DIRECTION & KEEP ON WALKING
“If you can’t figure out where you stand with someone, it might be time to stop standing and start walking“
Are you on a journey of personal growth and evolution? Do you ever feel like you’re outgrowing the relationships around you? Do certain people seem surprisingly unsupportive of a recent success – maybe you’ve taken a leap up the career ladder, decided to start your own business or moved away to start a new life – whatever change you’re going through; what should you do when your friends, colleagues or even family seem to dislike the new and improved version of you?
Like most things in life, every relationship has a beginning, a middle and an end. Separating out what you want; from what others in your life want for you is hugely important. No-one is holding you back, it’s about you taking responsibility for your choices – in this case: who you have in your life and the effect they are having on you.
People come, people go – we’re all on different paths and not everyone will want to support your new ways, they may even put pressure on you to keep things the way they are because that’s what they want from you but this is your life and the ultimate decision-maker on who and what is best for you, is YOU!
Clinging on to this idea of permanence in relationships is counter productive and can set you up for disappointment, sadness and failure. You’re not leaving anyone behind, it’s just that your path is now heading in a different direction to their path, and that’s OK!
If you’ve tried as many ways as you’re comfortable with to resolve this, now may be the time to take a deep breath, communicate from a good place and simply walk away without casting judgment. Knowing when to walk away is wisdom, being able to walk away is courage and walking away with your head held high is dignity...
Do what is best for you, your journey, your life – eliminate the blame game and lead with love, compassion and understanding.
“Sometimes we walk away not because we want others to realise our worth and value but because we finally realise our own“
