It is so important to leave people in the season that God intended for them to be a part of. Seasons naturally change in our lives just like the weather and it’s inevitable. Have you ever tried to put a fallen leaf back on the tree it fell from? It is impossible to reconnect and reobtain growth. Same way with people who no longer serve purpose in our lives and I promise if you ask God to show you who needs to fall, He will. I was just saying this yesterday and I’m going to say it again today .. Not everyone can go to the next level with you. When God is taking you to that next level, there’s NOT going to be room for everyone on that journey. Be able to accept that. Not everyone can always enter the space you’re called to. Be OK with that and go anyways! Love from a distance when it becomes necessary and transition into your new season.
This post was inspired by a beautiful heart, Montana Danielle as well as when I was going through my own season of learning to love people from a distance or just simply learning to love them where they were.
There will be a natural process of elimination that occurs on your journey. You have to pay attention to what’s happening in your life and don’t try to interrupt the process. People will show up and show their true colors and you have to respond accordingly. You may have to cut off some people whom you’ve considered friends. You may have to cut off some family members. Anyone who is toxic and refuses to grow and change must be left behind until they are ready to catch up. There will always be separation before elevation. Be ready for it and the natural occur.

Just a little encouragement for you that also inspired me! Thanks for visiting my blog!! You’re company here is always appreciated 🙂
- Don’t fear alone time.
- Learn how to be content with your own company.
- Don’t feel like the world owes you.
- Don’t expect immediate results.
- Don’t worry about pleasing everyone or living up to their expectations.
- Don’t waste time feeling sorry for yourself.
- Don’t waste energy on things you can’t control.
- Be able to accept that not everyone will like you.
- Don’t let others influence your emotions.
- Don’t let others influence your own personal opinions.
- Don’t hate on other people’s success.
- Clap for other’s in their winning season.
- Don’t shy away from responsibilities.
- Be accountable.
- Don’t give up after the first failure.
It all begins and ends in your mind. What you give power to, has power over you, if you allow it! Your mental strength is SO important !! Make sure you take care of it !!
Self Accountability is another level of Self Love & Self Care. It is so important to be able to take responsibility for yourself, your actions, and your mistakes.
Yes, love yourself .. but also analyze and be critical of how you think, act, and behave. Self love without self awareness is useless. Be accountable and if you don’t know how, here are few ways to practice it. 🙂
- Acknowledge that you’re struggling.
- Accept that you’re imperfect and that it’s normal.
- Ask for help when you need it. Don’t let pride get in the way.
- Slow Down! –
- Learn how to handle your problems and pick your battles.
- Take responsibility for your mistakes.
- Practice the art of apology.
When you have a well-developed sense of self–accountability, you are honest with yourself, and are answerable and responsible for what you say and do. You have the ability to look beyond the immediate moment to consider the consequences and know if you are willing to pay them. You have personal ethics.
Keep striving to become a better you and remember:
“What you are going through is created to position you in a better place than you were before. It may not look like it right now but it’s forcing you to level up. You are getting what you asked for and more. It may not be pretty but in it’s own way the process is beautiful and you will be prepared for what you for.” -Tatiana Jermone
Tough times do suck but I’m here to encourage you in the fact that they really don’t last forever. I’ve finally come to the conclusion that there are some things you just HAVE to go through and there are some storms you really just can’t get out of going through. As much as our human nature despises it, it is absolutely necessary for our growth! Learn to appreciate the opportunity to grow and improve. Struggle makes you stronger if you let it. There is always purpose behind the pain. Remember, highs and lows bring balance. Appreciate the season you’re in. Trouble don’t last always!!
Sending lots of love & positive vibes your way !!
