Our card for today, Monday, April 30th, is taken from the Magical Messages from the Fairies Oracle Cards – Walk Away – “Leave the unhealthy situation, and enjoy the new doors that open as a result!”
How many of us stay in unhealthy situations, whether that is a relationship, or a job, or even a friendship, because it is “safe” meaning it is known as opposed to unknown? You know what they say, “better the devil you know than the devil you don’t”. However what we feel is safe because we know it and are used to it and know what to expect, doesn’t mean it’s healthy for us or even right for us. Sometimes it takes courage to walk away, but it is also necessary for our own survival, not necessarily physical survival, but for our very well being as a whole.
When things are unhealthy, or when things get bad, it’s a sure sign it’s time to move on. Why would we continue to put up with a situation where we are disrespected and undervalued and maybe even abused? Does it again come back to our feelings of unworthiness? My ex before I worked up the courage to leave him would tell me that no one else would ever love me, that I was fat and ugly. I lived in that situation for 8 years where according to him everything I watched or listened to or read was stupid, that I was stupid, and after a while I started to believe him. I completely lost myself, who I truly am, in my marriage, and I can tell you that certainly wasn’t healthy. Thankfully I had a loving family who helped me get out of that situation.
It took me a long time to find myself again, and then I turned around and went back to a similar situation that I remained in for 10 years in the name of Twin Flame. It wasn’t quite the same which is why it took me some time to figure out exactly what was going on, but I have walked away now from that situation and I am not looking back. This is why I have some serious issues with the Twin Flame concept when I hear of people, men and women, putting up with abuse and disrespect from the one supposed to be their Twin. And what are we being told? “How much can you love?” If you love them enough eventually they will wake up and come back to you. Then they call it unconditional love, so that it doesn’t matter what they do to you, you stay and love them anyways. I went along with that to the point it nearly destroyed me.
So if you find yourself in an unhealthy situation please don’t stay, not for any reason. Nothing is worth losing yourself over. Let me ask you this, can you unconditionally love yourself enough to not let anyone for any reason, under any circumstances, make you feel unworthy of the love and respect that you deserve? And then if you do find yourself in a situation like that, can you then walk away in the name of self-love?
It may be that when someone does this to us, it’s not about us, it’s about them and what they have experienced in their own lives, but that doesn’t mean that we have to stay and put up with it. We can love someone from a distance, meaning we don’t have to keep them in our lives. The more chances we give people, the more they take advantage of us and the more they disrespect us in the long run. So don’t be afraid to walk away, and when you do, new doors and new opportunities for love, or a job, or a new situation will open up. Remember as long as we cling to the old, nothing new can come into our lives. And remember too that you are the son or daughter of the Creator of All Things, and you are magnificent and you are sooo loved!
Have a great day everyone! ~Namaste~
Love & Light,
