Walking away from a toxic relationship isn’t easy but nobody said it had to be miserable. Every time you take a step in the right direction like not initiating or returning phone calls, facebook messages or texts for a week from your toxic ex, treat yourself to something you like. Who said anything was wrong with a little positive reinforcement? On the flip side, if you do fall short, don’t punish yourself. We all make mistakes. If you do, dust your shoulders off and start over again.
