“I had to let them go. It didn’t matter who they were. It was a matter of life and death.”
There are some people in this life who are far too toxic to remain wedged in our lives. They can be spouses, coworkers, lovers, friends. The hardest truth to face, however, is when these toxic people are our family. You’ve got to let go of the people that present a danger to your wellbeing. When these people are our parents, our siblings, our cousins, our caretakers? The work is harder, but even more important.
