I’ve come to love the image of me walking away from things that don’t support me.
Just this week, I was informed that someone who’s never met me is not a fan. She has said some not-so-nice things about me behind my back.
My old self would have tried to prove her wrong, win her affection and convince her to like me.
Did I do that? Nope! No longer.
I am done trying to convince people to like me.
It’s exhausting and such a waste of energy.
What did I do instead?
Walking away from these types of situations always means I’m walking towards the people I don’t need to convince and towards more joy and more of what supports me.
Walking away is the highest form of love for myself and others.
I get to like me. And, I get to like the other person too, even if they don’t like me.
It’s all up to me.
Everyone gets to be who they are.
I don’t have to engage in screaming or harsh words.
I don’t have to feel hurt or anger.
I simply turn towards what feels like love, and away from what doesn’t.
What do you need to walk away from?
