You Can't Heal In The Same Environment That Made You Sick

You Can't Heal In The Same Environment That Made You Sick because these environments are unsafe, toxic and triggering. How can you heal if surrounded by the same people who hurt you? People who keep your body immersed in survival mode?

One of the hardest thing that I ever had to do was walk away from someone I loved.  Someone who I thought I would spend the rest of my life with because he was no longer beneficial for my mental health. I never imagined my life without this person, I mean I had been in love with him since I was 16, we raised a family together, created businesses together. I was living my dream, but was I?  

At what expense? At the expense of my health, my self love, and my self esteem. What kind of life is that?

It's necessary to break away from hurtful people and environments to create a safe, calming space that encourages healing. Unless you remove yourself from the situation or environment where you have been hurt, you will most likely continue to be hurt. 

Turning the page is extremely hard because it implies understanding and accepting that letting go of someone means that while they may have been apart of your history, they do not have to be apart of your destiny. 

A plant cannot thrive without the necessary conditions. Humans are like plants. needing the right conditions to thrive.

Changing your environment may not be the easiest thing to do however, there are still things that you can do to help create the best life that you can such as journaling, staying with friends, removing toxic people, counseling, therapy, etc.

Self love is a major components to healing, once you start to put yourself, your wellbeing, mental health and health first you will eventually start to pull away from anything or anyone that goes against that.

Heal the mind and the body will follow.
