Burning Bridges

You’ve heard the quote, “Don’t burn your bridges.”  Basically a reminder don’t lash out when you leave a situation in case you need to go back someday.  I am learning that there are some bridges that need to be burned to make sure I never go back to a place I used to be in.  I don’t ever want to be put back in the place of giving up my power, allowing others to treat me as less than nothing, or other places I’ve been.  Some of those bridges need to burn and cheering when those bridges completely collapse is the appropriate response.  Celebrate moving on to healthier actions.  Cheer progressing to healthy boundaries and choices that protect those boundaries.  Burning bridges sometimes the healthiest choice when moving out of abusive situations.
