Walk Away or Not?

In the quest for empowerment we will find a wealth of advice about walking away from the people who make us feel badly. In some cases this is good advice.  In others, it just adds to the chaos, makes things worse, and the world more inhospitable. When is walking away merely fighting fire with fire?

  • Are part of the problem
  • Are unwilling to see the hypocrisy within ourselves
  • Are not committed to our own personal development
  • Condemn others for things we have also done
  • Haven’t forgiven

  3. Thank you for reading and sharing my poem Pam. It’s incredibly encouraging.
