What bullshit am I putting up with that I need to cut out of my life?
No is a powerful word.
In an instant, the word no can change the course of your entire life.
As in, “No, I don’t want to be a lawyer after all.”
Or, “No, you can’t hit me ever again. I’m leaving you for good.”
Or, “No, I’m not okay with wheezing for air every time I climb that stair case. It’s time to make a shift in my lifestyle.”
What bullshit are you putting up with that you know that you need to cut out of your life?
You’re allowed to say no to it. No matter what it is. I know people who have successfully cut ties from their toxic/abusive family members because it was necessary for them to live their lives. I know people who have changed career paths after the age of 60 and had an amazing time doing it. So stop putting so much energy towards selling yourself on false stories. It’s all possible.
You’re allowed to cut out anything that feels like it needs to be cut out. You have full permission. And you deserve the peace of mind that lives on the other side of your “No.”
