Should We Normalize Cutting Off Toxic Family and Friends?

The year 2020 was the apocalypse, even though society is trying to do whatever it can to get “back to normal.” There is no going back. There is no normal.

Unknowing to most, the term apocalypse literally means the unveiling. Last year revealed a lot of things to me. The result? I learned I have a lot of unhealed trauma to unpack, shadow work to do, and self-love to receive. My healing journey is my top priority, and nothing is even a close second.

My healing journey is top priority, nothing is even a close second!

While browsing through YouTube, I found this video to be extremely enlightening as I continue to embark on my personal healing journey. I have come to realize that inner peace is more valuable than ALL things — especially toxic family and so-called friends. Often times, we aren’t able to let go of toxic situations out of fear. Fear of not having any friends. Fear of being disowned by toxic family members. Fear of being completely still and having to finally face your own reality. I know, it can be scary… but as Drake puts it, these are the Scary Hours.


If you, too, find yourself in the midst of a forever purge of all things that no longer serve your higher being, then I highly recommend giving this video a watch. Remember healing is a journey, not a destination. I’ve shared a post here on my blog that really helped me take those necessary, but scary, steps towards my own healing.
