Thing about instincts is, they warn us when they sense something is not right, right in the moment it is happening!
As humans, we tend to ignore the signs in hope that we are just overthinking and the other party truly values us, until we start seeing signs that start as minor things but turn out to be direct indicators of disrespect, even abuse.
We try to be understanding.
Hoping it all must be a misunderstanding or a communication gap only to realize we enabled our own abuse and exploitation.
I’ve been there.
I’ve overlooked my instincts.
I’ve given myself excuses of ‘they don’t mean it’
They really did.
They knew what they were doing and they knew I wasn’t going to speak up for myself and I wasn’t going to walk-away.
So they kept milking my weakness and my lack of self-worth.
I stopped. Stood up. Walked Out, to never look back.
FREEDOM began the day I stood up for myself.
Fears started becoming powers, Hurt started becoming wisdom and indecision changed into clarity. I realized, and confirmed to myself, “I DESERVE BETTER!”
If your gut is telling you to stop, exit and start afresh, do it!
Don’t be scared of the new, don’t cling on to the ‘comfortable’ even when you can see it’s in fact abusing your presence, kindness and patience.
Stand Up. Walk Out, to never look back.
RECLAIM YOUR WORTH.
RECLAIM YOUR RESPECT.
RECLAIM YOUR LIFE!
YOU DESERVE BETTER!
