Good morning, friends!
May has been an emotional month for me, and frankly, I am just glad that it is almost over.
Last week, I opened up a little bit explaining why some of my blog posts recently have been on the Debbie Downer side of things, and this week was no different. As I had mentioned at our link party last weekend, I had a really productive outlook and was ready to get things accomplished. I totally did, too. That weekend was great! But earlier this week, I lost a few members of my tribe.
Finding your tribe is more important beyond words. We all need people in our lives who we can talk to and lean to for emotional support. Friendship is built on trust. It's also built on respect. There comes a time in a failing relationship when someone eventually realizes that the trust and respect between those two people has vanished entirely. Sadly, this week I made the difficult decision to close the door on a couple of relationships in my life that no longer felt mutual.
It's important to know that it is okay to sever a relationship that feels harmful to you. To know that you should not feel guilty when you feel forced to say goodbye to someone who has done nothing but make you feel disrespected and betrayed. Look out for yourself--love yourself by knowing your worth, and have the courage to sever ties with people in your life who take advantage of your friendship.
