Sometimes we just have to be willing to say, “I’m not willing.” Sometimes, “No”, “Enough”, or “Stop” are the ultimate of empowering words. Sometimes these words are the “bunker busters” of long-suffering relationships, or rut-comfortable situations. Sometimes, clarity, and the courage of expressed and acted out intention will rock the world around us, eventually, changing it for the better. Radical honesty can be uncomfortable, but never allow “toxic” to become your “new normal”. Think of it this way. If you’re suffering with a relationship or situation, likely, everyone connected with you is too. Sometimes saying, “I’m not willing”, and really meaning it, is the most courageous and loving thing we can do. I know that sounds odd, but if you think it through, it won’t seem as negative as it sounds. Saying, “I’m not willing” will end relationships and situations as they exist, but sometimes, thanks to courageous love, they have an opportunity to “reset” and begin in a fresh, new way. How about you? Are you going the way of courageous love? What relationship characteristics or situations are you “not willing” to endure for even one more day? Take action! You’ll be glad you did.
