In order to move forward in life , you have to make some tough decisions, and separate your emotions from what is fact. I had to cut off unhealthy relationships so I could move forward, and have a peace of mind. I also had to free myself from the negative opinions of others that are toxic to the soul. When you have a peace of mind, you can see and think more clearly. There's nothing like being free of constant worry, frustration, and stress. To have peace is liberating, and you'll do everything in your power to keep it, especially if you've broken free from unhealthy relationships loaded with baggage. I've discovered that it's mentally and emotionally draining to hold onto unhealthy relationships that attempt to keep you in guilt mode, or make you feel that you're not capable, or worthy enough to have or become the best at what you do. It's like an internally pull in your soul that keeps you weighed down, preoccupied with negativity. They're a hindrance to your well being, and it can be compared to carrying someone else's weight.
