Saying Goodbye To Someone You Love With Peace And Compassion

by Jennifer Zmurchyk – Prairie Sky Wellness

Walking away from someone you love is very painful

If you love you don’t let go. The thing you let go of is the experience.

Yogi Grand master Akshar

Many of us have had the experience of deeply and truly loving another person, but for whatever reason it doesn’t work out. Bad timing, individually wanting different things, people and circumstances beyond our control that are interfering in the situation, outgrowing each other. There can be many causes for a relationship to fall apart; even one that is based on real love.

So how do we let go of a person whom we honestly love without condition in a way that is compassionate with the understanding that some things are not meant to be? How do we give up clinging onto the hope that something will change in a situation that is clearly not working in its present form?

Letting go of someone is very difficult and painful where there is mutual love with a deep bond, but the realization is eventually reached that the relationship is not healthy.

Narcissists. Some of the most destructive people we can ever come across. They cause havoc and chaos in the lives of everyone around them and have no issues with ruining other people emotionally. The only person in the narcissists life that matters is them.

Toxic People In Your Life? Give Yourself Permission to Get Rid Of Them

by Jennifer ZmurchykPrairie Sky Wellness

We Should Never Feel Guilty About Removing Toxic People From Our Lives

In 2016 I made the decision to take my life back. At the time, I was very ill with Type 1 Bipolar Disorder and pretty much at rock bottom. I realized at the time that I had a choice to make – continue to live a life of misery and darkness, or take my mental health into my own hands and do what I could to change things. I chose the latter and I am so grateful because today I am living a rich and happy life relatively free from Bipolar symptoms.

Part of the changes I needed to make was removing the toxic people in my life. Unfortunately almost all of these toxic people came in the form of family and friends which made it very difficult and it took a lot of courage on my end to stand up to them, put boundaries in place, and when the boundaries didn’t have an effect I had to walk away.

I am a 45 year old divorced single mother, and almost my entire life I was a pushover – that’s four decades of allowing people to use me and not treat me with respect. A lot of this came from the fact that I am highly empathic and a genuinely kind person who tends to see the good in people while at the same time ignoring the bad. An ‘over giver’. Constantly giving to other people at my own expense and I rarely received anything in return.

Loving the Most Important Person in Your Life…YOU

by Jennifer ZmurchykPrairie Sky Wellness


‘I love you’

A lot of us use this phrase towards others in our lives every day, but how many of us can stand in front of a mirror, look ourselves in the eyes, and honestly say this to the person looking back at us? Sometimes that is easier said than done.

Why would this be difficult?

Why do so many of us feel unworthy of love?

Why do a large percentage of us people get stuck in toxic and codependent relationships afraid to leave because we are scared to be alone?
