I often discus the need for “clearing the field” or issues in the physical body. There is something both profoundly simple yet painful that most of us shy away from clearing out of our lives. Toxic Relationships. These are the relationships that haunt us, block our soul purpose and clutter up our energy fields and physical bodies with toxic debris. These are the relationships that we don’t look too closely at, we don’t question, we just endure.
In order to love yourself, you have to be able to disconnect or manage family, business associates, romantic relationships and friendships that are not working for you. Everyone has their own threshold of toxicity. Everyone has a list of excuses why they can’t leave “yet” or why society or culture doesn’t approve and they have to hang on. For some it’s money, others a fear of abandonment or disapproval. The Band Perry, a popular country group wrote a song about this issue. They called it “Done”.
That word holds both a mystical finality and freedom in the same tone. A clean break, a new start and an open door. For when we choose to stay in the friendship, business partnership or relationship, we often don’t or can’t choose anything better. You’ll never know what’s around the next corner of your life if you don’t start walking.
