It Takes Strength To Walk Away

Fall is upon us.

The season is changing. The weather is changing. Soon there will be no trace left of the summer days. As the pigment of the leaves change and we watch them fall off the branches then make their way back to earth. It’s a reminder that every now and then, we need to make some changes.

Oftentimes we become so accustomed to things and people that we try to hold on so tightly for fear of change. On one hand, this is about convenience and familiarity is comfortable. Our minds can make us believe we need these things, situations, and relationships, and that’s why we hold on to them for dear life.

People and things will come in and out of our lives, and we need to learn when it’s time to walk away. This has been one of the hardest lessons for me to learn, I’ve had to painfully walk away from people and things that I wanted to hold onto because of the fear of letting go. I was able to let go and it took strength to walk away.

It takes strength to walk away from someone you love.

When holding on is hurting you and you’re stuck in a relationship that is no longer what you want, that is no longer giving you what you deserve, it’s time to walk away. The strength that’s required to walk away, it might hurt at first but once the pain is gone you will start to see things from a different perspective and you will understand that walking away from someone that is not good for you is a sign of strength and courage. By walking away, you are freeing yourself to eventually find a better partner.

It takes strength to walk away from friends that no longer walk the same path.

If you have grown apart, it takes strength to understand that not all friendships are meant to be forever. By walking away you’re not discrediting what you once had, you’re not forgetting the memories and the good times you once shared. Instead, you are simply acknowledging that they are different, that things have changed, and this is not what you want anymore.

It takes strength to walk away from the past.

The past has so many memories that we don’t want to move on from. Our hearts see the good in them, the history between them, but the pain that the past brings keeps you from living in the present and it ruins your future.

It takes strength to walk away from bad situations.

When you know that nothing you can do will change the situation, walking away is the best solution. Some things can’t be fixed.

It takes strength to walk away from a career.

You may have invested your best years and worked your way up but when a job has ceased being satisfying, or what you’re doing is no longer fun and you dread the very thought of whatever it is you are doing. It’s time to walk away.

It takes strength to walk away from what is comfortable.

It takes strength to walk away and leave everything behind.

It takes strength to walk away from relationships, friends and even family.

It takes strength to walk away from all that you’ve ever known.

It takes strength to walk away from anything that no longer serves you.

It takes strength to walk away from things in your life that you find yourself too emotionally attached to.

When you finally realize your worth, you’ll walk away from your past, people, habits, and choices that don’t serve you. You will realize that these things are getting in the way of your own personal growth and happiness.

Walk away from anything which is taxing you mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually.

Walk away from anything that no longer makes you happy, and trust that life has better plans for you. Whenever we walk away from anything that’s not serving us, the Universe will bring in something even more wonderful.

Walking away from people and things that are no longer meant to be in our lives allows us to start making new positive memories, and to replace those people and things with better ones.

Walk away from what no longer serves you and gravitate towards the people who make you happy, the things that bring you joy and in the places that bring you peace.

Walking away shows that you are strong.

Walking away has nothing to do with weakness, but everything to do with strength. TC mark
