I saw this meme online and I thoroughly enjoy questions like these that provoke thought. This question speaks more to who I was and less to who I am. Point of fact I did cut people out of my life without the request for the sake of my relationships. I am neither proud nor have regret for those decisions. I didn’t just do this with my spouse. In relationships prior to my marriage I cut people from my life.
I did these things for many reasons. At the time I believed that the person I was with was more important that the person I was leaving in my past. In some cases that person was causing conflict in my intimate relationship. There were a few times that my significant other was jealous of the relationship or friendship I want with another.
Today I don’t know if I would do that again. I realized in my life that all people in my life have, in many ways, equal importance to me. I will no longer cater to someone’s insecurities and negativity. I will only let people influence me in a positive way. I refuse to be manipulated or controlled. I will not make a decision that is not right for me for the sake of someone else’s emotional wants or needs. I will not place one person’s needs above my own or anothers.
All people are important, especially those that are there to love and support you in a healthy way. If someone cannot see that or is jealous of that relationship advise them to look within and seek help with their insecurities.
Thanks for listening.
