detaching and other things.
you can read a thousand books, set a million boundaries, talk with a million therapists, but if you can't just let it go, you're going to fail. that's probably why i've failed at making changes before. because for whatever reason, i just can't let it go.
cut the string. say bye. watch it float away. if it's gone, it can't stick around to hurt you. and you know what? detaching from people is okay too. they might not be what you need to heal at the moment. does that mean they're bad people? absolutely not. in fact, you might love their company and they might love yours, but in the end, it's about getting to where you need to go.
let go of everything and everyone that will hold you back from being who you most want to be.
detaching is a way of saying, "i do not accept this behavior in my life." it's hard but it's worth it. and it took some really awful lessons to learn that.
do what you know you need to do.
