Knowing When You've Had Enough

Personally, I am tired of hearing that toxic family are still family and that you should endure their toxic behavior because they are family. It is important to know when you've had enough. No one deserves to be abused or hurt in anyway. Walking away or terminating a relationship does not make you a bad person or a toxic person. I had to cut my family out of my life for the sake of my own well-being. At first I felt guilty and ashamed. I bought into the they're your family. I bought into that for so long that the guilt started interfering in my life. It took a lot of therapy, self reflection and help from my fiancé to realize that I don't need them. I didn't deserve to be abused by my family. Walking away means you love yourself enough to know your worth. It took me a long time to learn that I am worth something. I am more than what was done to me. Choosing to terminate those relationships seems to be the best thing I've done so far. I'm not holding out hope of reconciliation. This also takes a lot of acceptance. I may never get the apology I so desperately deserve. I have to be okay with that. Some days it still bothers me though, but overall I am okay with no apology. You need to know that you are worthy of being loved, respected and treated with compassion. You do not deserve to be abused in any way. Remember walking away or terminating a relationship does not make you a toxic person. Don't let people tell you that it's your fault for cutting people out. Know your worth.

should I leave? #Depression #MentalHealth #Anxiety #Advice #Relationships

I have done everything I could for my depressed friend but he seems to just throw it back at my face. He’s so angry with me all the time for no reason. He’s gotten worse the past few months with me and doesn’t want to talk at all. We have been going through this the past 18 months. I feel so heartbroken with some of the things he says to me. He seems like a completely different person. I don’t recognise him anymore. I made the effort going to see him and he was quite normal to my face and spoke to me but on text he doesn’t make any sense with what he says. he seems confused and contradicts his words. Shall I just leave things and try and move forward with my life? He tells me to do that but I’m not sure if it’s his depression speaking to me or if it’s really him. #Depression #Friendship #Realtionships #help

I had it before , I can have it again.... #Autism #MentalHealth #Realtionships

My Anxiety dawned on me today I Saw this post on social media “Imagine staying up at 2am with the love of your life and making pancakes” .
First thing popped in my head “I had that” Just reading a book out loud to him and he smiled and watched me.
Surely I had that means I can have it again.
You have more then one love in your life for many different reasons.
I don’t regret it. #MentalHealth #Relationships #Autism
What I mean by this post is just because you had something and it didn’t work for any reasons mean you can have it again and it could work out xx
