Ok commented once and it disappeared. Trying again. Yes. It is hard but it's good in the end. Hard. I've learned to say no and limit some relationships so that they no longer interfere or negatively influence more important relationships. It's hard to walk away entirely. I haven't done it yet with a certain relationship I have...the boundaries are doing the trick. It would be very hard on me to walk away but I practice in my head sometimes what I'll have to do.Other toxic relationships I have walked away from. I always do it poorly and regret my method. But never the result.
