Self Care Sometimes Means Making Peace w/Your Past & Changing Your Number.

“God will INTENTIONALLY allow the people you want to be in your life, to be a let down in every way possible to help you recognize His plans do NOT include them. We end up making ourselves miserable by hanging on to the very little parts of them that make us comfortable and ignoring the negative all because we do not want to release them to move on without us. Letting go may cause a TEMPORARY discomfort but forfeiting God’s plans for you are not worth it. Trust me when I say “just do it”. You will understand it better by and by.
Self care sometimes means making peace with your past and changing your number. Some people just no longer need access to your life nor should you leave any room for them to think they do. We will never move forward into God’s promises if we keep stringing along people we we were supposed to have dropped off a long time ago. Don’t become your own hinderance.”πŸ’› – Montana Danielle

These beautiful words were written by one of my Facebook friends but I was particularly inspired to share it here on my blog to encourage those men and women out there in toxic relationships to move on and let go! I know that’s much easier said than done. It’s never easy for a good person to walk away; especially after you’ve invested so much of yourself into making it work. I know it’s hard. I’ve already been there and done that but you want to know what I learned? Sometimes it’s not about having the strength to hold on, but it’s about having the courage to let go. Trust that God has a better plan down the road. I know I did and now I’m blessed more than I could ever put into words. I love my Husband with everything in me and it feels to good to know, see and feel that same love being reciprocated !!
If you are going through high-highs, low-lows, desperation, self-loathing, vindication, relief, depression and confusion, I have a message for you: Love doesn’t feel like this. It doesn’t feel like what you’ve been putting up with. Praying for you and your strength to let go and move on!!

  1. I really needed to read this even though I let go of my long distance and toxic relationship 2 years ago but sometimes I still feel something in my heart that makes me miss my ex and that I could do better to work things out, now that I know he’s not single it’s pretty hard on me sometimes. Thanks for sharing this post ❀

  2. Yes exactly! Just about recovered from a 4 1/2 year relationship… which ended over text, after I discovered… a lack of commitment πŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™€οΈπŸ˜‚ Let’s put it that way. I hung onto it for a while, we had lived together and spent a lot of time together. I didn’t recognise that the relationship was toxic at the time, but it definitely was! Now I feel so free, I feel like I had forgotten what actual happiness was. Now have blocked his number and removed him on my social media. We had agreed to be friends and stay talking, but as you said in your post… sometimes we need to just cut people out and let go!
    Thank you so much for sharing this πŸ™πŸΌ

  4. Hi Jessica, I definitely agree with you. I also believe that we can manifest and attract people into our lives. For example, if you are a negative person, I’ve noticed that negative people will likely attract toward you. Misery loves company, as they say. But also, it’s true of the opposite. People love happy, positive and confident people. If you can radiate that from within yourself, good people will come to you. Gotta keep on keeping on, after all. Life doesn’t stop for the living.

  5. Yep! This quote in there sums it all up: β€œSometimes it’s not about having the strength to hold on, but it’s about having the courage to let go.”
    We sometimes have to let go for our sanity!
