DO You Need a Relationship DETOX?
I am SERIOUS about my friendships. Very serious. I’ve had the same amazing girlfriends and beautiful relationships for over 20 years. To me, my relationships are my wealth. They are my joy. They are my refuge, and yet at times, they have also been my greatest source of PAIN. I reflect upon a time that a very close friendship of mine changed. You see, I don’t believe relationships END, but they most certainly do change! This relationship was very dear to my heart, and yet I could feel it shifting, accommodating new growth, new vision and my own expanded sense of self and worth. We will all experience this familiar crossroad in life, where it really is time to let go and move on.
Now, I don’t believe in intolerance and “cutting folks off” for simple irritations or the normal challenges that most relationships face. Solid relationships are far too valuable and genuine friendships are truly worthy of nurturing, healing and protecting. I do however believe that we must be discerning of these changing times. It is imperative to be CLEAR when it is in fact time to move on from a relationship in order to honor our hearts and life’s calling. Every new beginning follows a necessary ending.
Relationships— The “STUFF” of life
Out of all of the experiences we have in life, NOTHING impacts our happiness, joy and emotional well-being like our personal relationships. As a wholeness-coach, when I sit and listen to the truth surrounding the pain of a person’s heart, it will eventually go back to a relationship. Relationships shape our world-view, our self-concept, our financial status and our belief systems. Relationships touch the very core of our existence. Nurturing healthy, life-giving relationships and letting go of unhealthy ones is imperative to our social and emotional growth and our spiritual well-being.
Relationships are TEACHERS:
There is a quote that states: No man is your lover or your enemy, but every man is your teacher. Often times when our soul-lesson is over, the relationship will change. As human’s beings, we resist change. We naturally associate change with loss and uncertainty. So we cling to the old and familiar often times through false-guilt, or a sense of duty/obligation. The people in our lives are so deeply tied to our God-ordained destiny that lingering longer than wisdom allows can not only be harmful to our psyche but also to our personal growth and soul-purpose.
Seasons change and so do relationships.
We really can outgrow certain mentalities, certain habits and certain people! If you’re seeking NEW blessings, new growth and NEW opportunities in your life, you may be called to let go of old, limiting, unhealthy relationships.
We often ask God for BIG, new things, yet remain small in our ability to leave our relational comfort zone. Blessings, lessons, opportunities and life flow through relationships. We must be willing to release what is not longer healthy or conducive to NEW growth in order to live in authentic wholeness and personal power.
Trust yourself. You know when a relationship has reached an unhealthy pattern that no longer serves you or God’s highest good for your life.
Relationship DETOX – Body DETOX
Just as there are unhealthy foods that burden the body and create disease, there are unhealthy mentalities that kill the potential of healthy relationships. Just as our bodies need periodic rest and detox, so do our lives in the realm of relationships.
Relationship DETOX Questions:
*Are you hanging around people for the sake of comfort and convenience even though you KNOW you’ve outgrown them?
* Are you compromising your values, self-worth or future vision by remaining in stale, stagnant or even negative relationships?
* Have you found yourself allowing the negativity of others to influence your heart and mind in a way that is not an accurate reflection of who you are or who you are called to be?
* Do the people in your life represent where your life is headed or only the familiar, old patterns of where you’ve already been?
* Are you stuck in a relationship where the bad has started to outweigh the good?
*Are you stuck in co-dependency, false-guilt or emotional dysfunction in a relationship?
If you answered “yes” to one or more of these questions, it’s time to pause and reflect. When we find the courage and power to release the old, we make room for the new.
