In this episode, I get some amazing insight on the importance of having a support network for any struggles you are facing from Corrie who overcame a divorce which left her homeless and walking on a partner who had committed suicide in her own home.
Red flag to realize you are in a toxic/abusive relationship. If you feel like you are constantly walking on eggshells.
If you are are in a toxic relationship…..get support. Reach out to friends, family, or a domestic abuse hotline. Outside perspectives help you gain clarity on what you need to get out of it.
Building a network of people who support you when you are in hard seasons in your life in particular is very important.
When people bail on you when you need them, it has nothing to do with you. That has everything to do with something in them internally, but you still deserve to have somebody there to support you. It’s up to you to lovingly detach from people whose friendships are no longer able to serve you in that capacity that you needed in this new chapter in your life. It is your responsibility to find people that will be there for you. The alternative is to keep those people in your life and having resentment against them for not being able to deliver what you need at this point in your life.
Losing someone to suicide is unlike anything else. You are having to deal with the anger at someone you love that killed themself. It’s a paradox of love and anger and a whole bunch of different emotions mixed up at once. It’s hard for people that haven’t gone through it to understand and its incredibly important and therapeutic to find a support group that is specific to people who have gone through the same thing. (This applies to any challenge you are going through. Find a support group of people who have gone through what you are going through to connect with and support you)
In times of tragedy, when you release the people who aren’t there to support you, it frees up so much space and time to allow people who are there to support you to come into your life.
It’s nobody else’s responsibility to build your confidence other than your own. To build confidence…..get comfortable making yourself uncomfortable.
Final Send Off:
Try not to resist the changes coming your way. Instead, let life live through you and do not worry that your life is turning upside down. How do you know that the side that you are use to is the better than the one that is to come.
