Lately I have gone through a purging of sorts with people or situations that are not in my highest good.
I am done having relationships with people who verbally attack me.
I am done with people who are friendly to my face, yet have ulterior motives when I am not around.
I am done with the insinuations that I do not work hard.
I am done allowing negative comments on my social media posts.
I am done.
I am not available to be anyone’s punching bag. I am not a dumping ground for your anger.
Yes, I am compassionate – but that does not make me a doormat. Take your anger elsewhere – or better yet, work through it and let it go. Choose to be a better person. But not because I said so, because you take accountability for your role in your own life.
I realize now that it is not my job to try and “fix” you. I do not have to invest in that. I can (kindly) set my boundaries and leave it there. How you choose to respond is just that – your choice. In that, I am free to just be. To shine my light in a way that I choose to, not to fit some mold of what you expect from me.
I choose to protect myself from abusive behaviors.
I choose to trust my intuition.
I choose to value my work.
I choose to hold space for love.
I choose to allow more good into my life.
I choose me.
