We have to stop investing in relationships whether familial or romantic if there is no reciprocity. Attachment prevents us from letting go. Nothing lasts forever. Our peace and sanity is more important than being shackled to repugnant relationships. © Norma Bobb-Semple 2023

Let it Go

We like to hold on to habits, things and relationships. We have to let them go when they are no longer serving our best interest. Everything has its season so let’s cleanse ourselves of those people and things that clutter our lives. © Norma Bobb-Semple 2022
