It's always a good idea to be cautious around people and guard your heart so you don't get harmed. There may be moments when people will abandon you, whether you see it or not. But you'll get over it, and that's OK. People come and depart for a purpose, and it improves your life. Even if someone leaves without saying anything, they're still taking responsibility for their own actions and you've done the same for them. It's a fair trade.
People will walk out on you for many different reasons; sometimes it's because they feel like it can't work out between them and you, but more often than not it's because they feel like they can't take the pain of being with you any longer. Don't assume that just because someone hasn't killed you yet, that they won't.
The most important thing is to keep yourself safe and sound. If someone has abused you physically or emotionally, you need to leave them behind forever. No matter how much you believe you can change them, in truth they are a part of your history and there's no going back now. They have shown themselves to be incapable of living within reason, which makes them a threat to yourself and others. Protect yourself at all costs!
If someone has walked out on you, don't take it personally. Remember that they have their own problems they need to deal with, and sometimes we only see the surface layer of someone else's life.
Even if stepping away is the greatest option for you, it will be excruciatingly painful. It is never easy to say goodbye to someone who has been a part of your life for a long period. 14. You're going to make it through this. Even though these people may not agree, you are not responsible for their feelings. If they protest, tell them you love them and want you to have the life you deserve.
Walking away is not abandoning them; it's allowing them to reach their own conclusions on your relationship without influencing them one way or another. You don't need to explain yourself further than that. Allow them to feel what they need to feel and move on with your life.
People take different amounts of time to get over things, but most people do get over them in the end. Don't worry about them; they'll be just fine without you. Focus on yourself and everything else will fall into place.
You will realize that leaving someone who is not good for you is a show of strength and courage. By stepping away, you give yourself the opportunity to find a better companion in the future. It takes courage to break away from people who are no longer on the same road as you.
It takes courage to walk away. Leaving folks behind may be painful at first, but as the anguish subsides, you will begin to view things in a new light. You will realize that leaving someone who is not good for you is a show of strength and courage.
It is OK to walk away from anything that causes you pain. It does not need apologies or justifications. All you have to do is quit feeding the fires. You will discover love again, and it will feel better this time. Life isn't always easy. Some things build us up, while others break us down. Our hearts continually expand, break, and rebuild. No matter what happens, you can keep rebuilding yourself until you are strong enough to stand up straight once more.
If you're remaining with someone mostly because they're kind, kind, and well-meaning and you don't believe you have a sufficient reason to leave them, you have every right to walk away. Because here's the thing about the person you can't decide on: someone else is very certain of them. They know exactly who you are and what you want and why you'd be leaving them. And here's how they see it: gone. You've been together for so long that they probably assume you'll get back together once you realize this was all a mistake. But if that happens, you have to ask yourself whether or not you can really go through it all over again.
Walking away isn't about being cold or cruel. It's about seeing things clearly and knowing what's best for you. If you feel like you need time apart to figure out where this is going, then don't worry about them; just focus on your own life plan. The more people who try to force you back together, the more confused you should become. If they truly cared about you, they would let you go without a fight.
You may think I'm talking about a romantic relationship here, but I'm not. I'm talking about any deep connection you have with another person.
Learn to walk away as a favor to yourself. Learn how to let go of a relationship as it begins to wane. When someone begins to abuse you, figure out how to move on to something and someone better. Don't allow yourself to be walked all over!
The next time you feel like staying in a relationship that isn't right for you, remember this story: A young man was walking along a path when he saw a light ahead. He wondered what kind of place could have both a light and a house? As he approached the light he heard voices inside talking about some people who were going to kill themselves because they were poor. The boy turned to look at the house but by then the light had gone out.
He stood there for a while wondering if anyone was inside the house waiting for them to die. Then he heard footsteps coming down the path toward him so he ran into the woods to hide.
Later that night after the people in the house went to sleep, the boy sneaked back out looking for the light. He wanted to see who lived in the house and maybe help them if they needed it. But when he got to the path it was dark and no light was anywhere to be seen.
So he decided not to go into the woods tonight after all.
