Sometimes people stay in a bad situation out of fear, out of lack of self-agency, lack of self-esteem, financial constraints, fealty to commitment, out of shame, etc. Unhealthy thinking leads to bad decisions. If we’re in a healthy, supportive place, mentally and emotionally, we can use that as a solid foundation from which we can make positive, healthy choices.
″Grant us the serenity to accept the things we cannot change, the courage to change the things we can, and the wisdom to know the difference."
It’s a cartoon! ☺
The key is to keep company only with people who uplift you, whose presence calls forth your best.
