It’s Time To Cut The Ties That Are Holding You Back From Growing

feet in the nice nice sand
Toa Heftiba

Every day in each of our lives, we learn and grow.

Every day we change in some way, whether that be physically, mentally or spiritually.

As we grow, our wants and needs adapt and we are then forced into situations whereby we must confront the idea of “change.”

The people we surround ourselves with at this point in time won’t always be around forever. There comes a point in our lives where we wake up and realize that some of these people we call our friends, partners and even sometimes family, aren’t always what’s best for us in the long run.

At one point in time, we enjoyed this relationship.

But when we realize we are no longer growing from this connection it becomes time to cut it loose.

This then becomes the hard part.

The idea of conflict, the idea of letting somebody down, the idea of confronting your issues…

When you are around something or someone negative for so long it becomes more so a habit or forced interaction rather than a positive aspect of your life. What I have learned is, if something is not bringing you joy and happiness, not pushing you to be the best you can be and not inspiring you to do better, then why are you wasting your time?

Whether this means quitting that draining job, cutting off that one-sided friendship or blocking yourself out from that negative drama, it is a step you need to take.

Once you realize this and acknowledge where this feeling inside your body is coming from, gaining the courage to confront it becomes that little bit easier. Your mindset becomes stronger and you develop the picture in your head of how things SHOULD and WILL be. Once you uncover this bit of strength and begin to face your problem, you become the one with the power.

Although in reality, you always had this power, you were just too nice to ever use it.

This power will drive you, it will motivate you and it will take you to where you need to be. You just need to maintain that strength in order to follow it through and have faith in your own abilities.

Life is too short to spend any moment unhappy, especially when you have control over it. In 10 years time are you going to look back and regret anything you are doing right now? Will you wish you had done something different? Would you give yourself any advice?

You have goals, you have dreams and you have ambition. Set yourself free from anything or anyone that holds you back from this. Follow your heart and aim for the stars.

Negativity is something that will only ever bring you down, but you, you belong in the sky.

I promise you that breaking free from any bad energy you experience in your life will be the greatest feeling you could ever give to yourself.

Remember, the scissors are in your hands. TC mark
