3 Important Reasons Why You Should Walk Away From An Unhealthy Relationship


Words by Te-Erika

Meditate on these 3 important reasons why you should plan your quick exit from an unhealthy situation.


1) It will contaminate the rest of your relationships.

When you are involved in an unhealthy relationship, whether it is a romantic relationship, an unhealthy work environment or a toxic relationship with a family member, the negative energy you collect when dealing with these people will be transferred over to the people you love.

You might find yourself being fussy with your children or less tolerant with your spouse. You may snap at co-workers who are not even involved in contributing to your unrest. This creates an even more miserable existence.

It is important that you relieve yourself and your loved ones of this type of abuse by removing yourself from the relationship or situation completely.


2) You will lose focus on your dreams.

A direct result of being in an abusive or unhealthy relationship is the way it sabotages your dreams. You begin to believe that you can not move past the situation and fall deeply into the abyss of despair unable to pull yourself out.

You start to believe the negative words spoken to you and the opinions of your antagonist gains power over your life therefore controlling your destiny. Take back your power and position yourself to walk away for the sake of your future.

3)You will delay the blessing that is waiting for you.

Sometimes it takes releasing yourself from a bad situation in order to receive the blessing that is in store for you. No door shuts without another one being opened, so unless you build the courage to walk away, you will never know what is out there waiting for you.

Many people have told stories of walking away on faith, believing that they deserved more and ultimately they received it because their unflinching desire for a better life demanded that they have what they deserve.

Demand the best for your life by first imagining a better situation, believing you can have it and then planning your exit.

Often it is not so easy to walk away from an unhealthy relationship. Especially if that relationship is a marriage to someone you still have feelings for.
It could be the case that a healthy relationship has gone bad.In which case there is a chance that it could be fixed.
You are right that you need to come away from an unhealthy relationship but working at your relationship (it takes both of you!) can be far more satisfying than simply giving up.

This is a great and inspiring post. I did exactly what you are saying and life has not let me down. Sometimes life calls for you to be bold so that you can exercise your God-given power of courage and determination and show yourself that you are worthy of the best in life. We also need to learn to lift our hearts before we get into situations that will affect our lives in the future. The best way to prepare for a new job, to meet your husband or wife is before the situation arrives. We need to learn to think our lives ahead of time because we are after all the creators of our own destiny. However, if we are already married, we have made a commitment to another being that we must honor and if it is in your heart to work things out, all you need to do is go within a search for wisdom and forgiveness and God will help you transform your relationship in ways you never thought possible.
