One word: BOUNDARIES.
This is true freedom - sure enough it can feel icky and uncomfortable standing up for yourself and speaking your truth if you are not used to it; but once that initial feeling of loneliness subsides...you'll feel immense peace.
If you struggle with being alone, the silence may become loud and unbearable and your brain will try to convince you that 'perhaps it wasn't so bad' or 'you're being childish and overreacting' Trust the process and push through it!! ✨
Being authentic and walking away is not only powerful but it leaves a space for others to enter your life or for YOU to focus on the things which enrich your life. ❤ ...
A painful thing to realise.

We just don’t realize now poisonous the air we breathe is, until we are out of that toxic prison. If you are still stuck in an abusive relationship, remember this: YOU ARE ALLOWED TO LEAVE. THIS IS YOUR LIFE. Call a women’s center. Google different forms of abuse. Make an appointment with a doctor. Go to the police and tell them about the domestic violence. Ask your friend who knows someone who went through the same. Take one single tiny step today, and one day you’ll be free from this hell. .

What has shifted for me?
🙏🏾 People pleasing: I do a lot less going with the flow these days, and feel at peace with saying "no, thank you", if something just doesn't feel right for me. 🙏🏾 I check in more with my needs, and let that guide my decisions as opposed to familial/cultural expectations. 🙏🏾 I have learnt to recognise that 💃walking away is not necessarily a bad thing, and actually at times the best long term option.
I am currently doing some research regarding people pleasing, codependency and toxic relationship patterns. If this post speaks to you and/or you know of someone who would love to get involved, ping me a DM, so that we can hit go🚦 ...
