Sometimes walking away has nothing to do with weakness, and everything to do with strength. We walk away not because we want others to realize our worth and value, but because we finally realize our own.
True. I can forgive, but that does not mean someone will continue to be part of my life (family or friends). Sometimes it's best to just move on, or to limit my contact with people who are hurtful, destructive or uncaring. I've learned to take care of myself and do what is best for me, not what someone else thinks is best. I live with my decisions, right or wrong, so I choose to make my own.
