If you or your partner say any of these things, there could be trouble in paradise!
Are you sabotaging your relationship with toxic phrases? Maybe you’re throwing around words without realizing their impact. It’s time to replace these relationship wreckers with phrases that breathe life into love. Stick with me, friend, and let’s dive into the linguistic do’s and don’ts of love. 😍
Do’s and Don’ts
1. What not to say: “You Don’t Deserve Me”
Ah, the ego has landed! Phrases like “You don’t deserve me” or “You’re lucky to have me” are self-inflating balloons that’ll burst sooner or later. 🎈
What to Say Instead:
Ever found yourself daydreaming of parting ways with zero drama, minus the “evil ex” label? Listen, we’ve all either been there or heard the not-so-fabulous tales. I recently spilled the tea on my own break-up with the Jehovah’s Witness community. And guess what? Positive break-ups aren’t just unicorns and rainbows; they’re real. So let’s dive in, shall we?
Begin at The End, Baby!
Feeling like you’ve tumbled down the rabbit hole? Totally get it. When you’re leaving a person, a community, or even a doggone belief system, you can feel like your GPS is set to Nowhere Land. Trust me, I hear you asking, “Is a positive break-up even in the cards?” Yes, sugar, it is!
👉 First Step: Give yourself permission to grieve. It’s not a Hallmark movie; it’s your life and it’s okay to feel all the feels.
You know what they say: “You’re the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” If you’re scratching your head thinking, “Huh, I wonder what that makes me?”—then you’re in the right place!
You wouldn’t keep eating expired food, so why keep expired relationships? Let’s get those emotional cupboards cleaned out, shall we?
