Doing the hard thing is a part of life. It’s a given that rough times will come in life. Doing the hard thing is often not the road most people choose to travel. I get why because life can be hard, but there is so much to learn by taking the path most people don’t.
Saying goodbye to detrimental relationships and choosing to take care of your mental and emotional health is anything but easy. I guess that’s why they call it tough love. Even when you know it’s the right thing to do…it’s still a difficult thing to do. You want people to understand the reason why, your friends and family, those that are close to you, but I guess if they DID understand, you wouldn’t be doing what you’re doing.
It’s not easy, changing how you conduct yourself in a relationship. But choosing to make the change is honoring the relationship, no matter who it is with. It’s honoring to yourself as well, and most importantly, it honors God. Setting boundaries IS doing the hard thing. And honoring those boundaries isn’t easy.
I pray that you find a way to live honorable in all the relationships in your life.
