Is it normal to feel guilty after walking out of someone's life because they were treating you badly? I tried fixing my friendship with a friend so many times but she kept hurting me every time with her attitude... But I still feel guilty for not talking with her one last time. It's been months and I feel like I'm the only one who hasn't moved on compared to her. I feel really guilty. What should I do Ramsey? 🙁
I think a lot of the time when it comes to relationships there is the horrible mindset of “don’t walk away, that’s giving up” which can lead us to staying in (any form) relationships that aren’t always the best for us.
Walking away from someone or anything is hard. Taking care of yourself and putting yourself first is hard, but you’re the most important person in your life. You don’t need to be friends with someone who makes you feel that way. All the emotional work for little outcome isn’t worth it.
I know it’s hard, letting go of people and things isn’t easy. But you should be really proud that you took that step. It takes a lot of courage to leave toxic relationships and you did it! That’s amazing!
And I’m proud of you.
