It's hard to walk away from people and circumstances that are tantalizing. They have the quality of irresistible seduction.
Yet, if the person or the circumstance comes with undeniable: abuse, lies, stress, fear . . . it's best to walk on by.
To accept the person or the circumstance thinking you'll "deal" with the challenging aspects, is to consciously accept walking into darkness.
Don't do it!
In your effort to fight the "darkness," elevate the person or the situation to a higher state, you will become who they are, you will sink to their level of darkness.
Keep your Light!
Without your Light, no person matters, no circumstance fulfills. After a time, in those situations, you will find yourself beaten down, barely escaping with your life, and it will be long, hard years ahead climbing back to the Light you so easily let go of in the presence of these glitzy things.
Nothing is worth losing your Light for, your Self, your Soul. You lose that, you have nothing.
Keep the Light!! In peace, gratitude, knowing you are blessed. Be grateful for being so blessed!
