Sometimes it is hard to know what to do.
When we are in a situation that does not serve us.
Yet to leave can cause us problems.
We can feel paralyzed about what choice to make.
When we go we leave behind something.
It might be people, money or support.
There is almost always some kind of loss.
And there is the uncertainty.
Even though the person in charge might be abusive or erratic.
Other people might make excuses for them.
They don't want to see us go, so they encourage us to stay.
Yet deep inside it just doesn't feel right.
In our bones, we know this is not the right situation for us.
Yet the fear of loss may hold us back.
Until we are ready.
Now it is time to go.
We can not stay any longer.
The atmosphere has become untenable.
For once we make that decision and step out, we can breathe again.
We can feel that spaciousness in our life again.
And when we find the new situation that fits us better, we know we made the right decision.
Sometimes we have to stick around long enough to do our own work and resolve whatever is unresolved within us.
Yet once we do resolve things internally, the external will surely change.
The new place, the new opportunity, the new relationship will show up for us.
It may take some time.
It might not happen right away.
Our heart will lighten.
And life will show us that we did make the right decision.
For when we take care of ourselves, life takes of us.
So is there a situation that you have been thinking about leaving?
Are you ready to step out into the unknow and see what life has waiting for you?
