"What I have come to realize is that counseling shouldn’t be sought just in the bad times. Sometimes it’s in the best of times when life is going your way, that we choose to invest in ourselves and our relationships. We always seek to be a better version of ourselves and I knew I had some layers I wanted to peel back. I wanted to be a better mom, girlfriend, friend, daughter. And I absolutely did not want the past to repeat itself. I wanted to do everything the right way this time around".
Yeap. What it comes down to is your actions in the end. As the saying goes actions speak louder than words. We can make careful plans if needed to to end relationships we do not wish to stay in. Start making plans for the life you want to have after that person is no longer a part of your life. This will make you stronger. Feel the fear, but do it anyway--carefully and with the help of others. If you give up, nothing will change.
