You are always ‘allowed’ to leave…
A date, a job, a relationship, an argument, an uncomfortable situation…
Wherever you are, however deafening the silent, societal pressure is – you are always allowed to leave.
Having boundaries is important, it’s just as important as having courage, being kind and being loved.
If you have no boundaries, or if your boundaries are not in order, people take advantage.
Life takes advantage.
Employers take too much of you.
Narcissists will be even more attracted to you.
Life will take too much of you, and really, there’s not enough of you to go around as it is.
It’s your right, and your duty to yourself, to say, ‘too much’.
Not everyone in this life can say they have their freedom, it is a privilege, own it.
So, my child, remember one thing…
When the hours become days, when the words cut too deep, when the toll is taken and taken again, when the joy is fading from your eyes….
It’s okay to leave.
Just walk on out.
