Remove Toxic People

The Lilac Road Blog Pink Black Typography Don't Let Others Limit You

You don’t ever have to feel guilty about removing toxic people from your life. It doesn’t matter whether someone is a relative, romantic interest, employer, childhood friend, or a new acquaintance – you don’t have to make room for people who cause you pain or make you feel small. It’s one thing if a person owns up to their behaviour and makes an effort to change. But if a person disregards your feelings, ignores your boundaries, and ‘continues’ to treat you in a harmful way, they need to go.

You Are Courage

The Lilac Road Blog Pink And Black Typography She Found Hope Right Where She Was

You are not your abuse. You are not what they did to you. You are not your trauma.
You are the cleverness that survived. You are the courage that escaped. You are the power that hid and protected a tiny spark of your light.
You will fan that spark into a bonfire of rage and love, and with it you will burn all their lies to ash.
