Daniell Koepke offers these healing insights about unhappy toxic relationships…
removing toxic people from your life. “You don’t ever have to feel guilty about
It doesn’t matter whether someone is a relative, romantic interest, employer, childhood friend, or a new acquaintance.
You don’t have to make room for people who cause you pain or make you feel small.
It’s one thing if a person owns up to their behavior and makes an effort to change.
But if a person disregards your feelings, ignores your boundaries, and continues to treat you in a harmful way, they need to go.
Not all toxic people
are cruel and uncaring. Some of them love us dearly. Many of them have good intentions.
Most are toxic to our being simply because their needs and way of existing in the world force us to compromise ourselves and our happiness.
They aren’t inherently bad people. But they aren’t the right people for us.
And as hard as it is, we have to let them go.
Life is hard enough without being around people who bring you down, and as much as you care, you can’t destroy yourself for the sake of someone else.
You have to make your well being a priority.
Whether that means breaking up with someone you care about, loving a family member from a distance, letting go of a friend, or removing yourself from a situation that feels painful — you have every right to leave and create a safer space for yourself.”

Quote #1: You don’t have to feel guilty about protecting yourself from toxic people.
Bonus Quote #2: If you’re struggling right now…
The fact that you’re struggling doesn’t make you a burden. It doesn’t make unlovable, not desirable, or undeserving of care. Nor does it make you too much or too sensitive or too needy. You’re simply human. Everyone struggles. We all fall apart. During these times, we are not always easy to be around. And that is okay. No one is easy to be around 100% of the time.The truth is you can be struggling and still be loved. You can be less than perfect and still be deserving of compassion and kindness.
