Let Go Of All Things Toxic

Emotionally, physically, spiritually..

Letting go and going ‘no contact’ with my toxic family feels so good on my stress levels. I feel I can finally breathe without them breathing down my back. I’ve changed my phone number and blocked them on my emails.

I finally realize they are the damaged ones and that I am the only mentally healthy person in my family.

I can’t believe what I allowed them to get away with… all in the name of ‘love’ of course…

I now have some healthy plans for my future and have met some healthy people.

Emotional stress is such a slow and painful killer.

Much love to all of you standing up and setting boundaries, or in the process of breaking free from emotionally dysfunctional partners and families

Love & baby steps,

Disappointing My Family..

This quote is amazing and just what I needed to read today.

Daring to set boundaries is about having the courage to love ourselves even when we risk disappointing others. -Brene Brown

No one can make you feel guilt quite like family…  and have mine pushed the guilt tripping boundaries this week! It felt painful at first to set hard boundaries but after doing so it I felt great. I realized for once I chose me first.. my needs and my health. I had the courage to follow my soul rather than their expectations..

Of course they’re sulking..  they always do if they don’t get their own way. They’ll get over it … in time :o) but I’m sure (like always) there’ll be repercussions (the silent treatment and they’ll probably bad mouth me ) but I’ll survive and keep following my own path and plan.

Have the courage to disappoint family and friends rather than betray your own soul.. it’s hard but ultimately you’ll felt better and stronger for it!

Ask yourself the question… “Is this good for me?”

Love & baby steps,
