No More Drama!!!

Updated on March 3, 2011

No!!!

At this point I'm sick and tired of being sick and tired. There's someone close to me who I'm seriously at my wits end with. In the time that I've known them I've shown them all the love, care, and support that's humanly possible. This person time and time again has put themselves in all sorts of predicaments, made numerous mistakes, and always manages to look to me to get them out of it. I felt sorry for them and have tried to help as much as I can, because that's how I am. The only problem is that this person continues to make the same mistakes over and over and has no plans of stopping the madness. So I've decided that enough is enough!!! No more breaking my neck to try to help someone that really doesn't want my help or appreciate it. I've learned that this person is HIGHLY toxic, and highly toxic people will DESTROY you if you let them. Toxic people don't care how you feel or what happens to you, they are walking death and disease, and only bring on pain, stress, aggravation, sadness, and anything else that's bad. So I've decided to walk away and just keep this person in prayer. No more rescues, no more "emergencies", no more wasting my time and energy, no more unnecessary stress, nothing. I'm tired of being mother, auntie, counselor, coach, superwoman, and being lied to, walked over, being disregarded, and not appreciated. At this point I'm mentally exhausted. I have to walk away to preserve my sanity. Do I feel bad about walking away? No. I won't be totally shutting them out, I just won't be playing the role(S) that I have been. At the end of the day, I know that I've done all I can, I made a huge effort, and they know it too. Instead I'm gonna put more energy into loving and caring for myself, because this is my life, and I'm gonna live it to the fullest!!! Anybody or anything in my way better watch out!!!

      Thank you for reading. It's interesting because this issue has come up for me once again, so you commenting was a reminder.

      Wow. I like it. You've got to let the unappreciative fin for themselves at some point. Every birdie must fly sooner or later. Bravo. voted up

      You're right Shelva, and they will definitely be doing for themselves.

      THe only way that folks can know that they can do something, is when they are left to do it for themselves, so this may serve them right. This certainly is good for you!

      Good read...
