So how do we go about unsticking?
First, I determine my level of safety. If a person’s not a threat to my physical safety, I’ll tell them I need to reevaluate some things in my life and I need the space to do so. If a person is a threat, I go no-contact, but I highly recommend talking to a licensed therapist or calling the domestic violence hotline for professional advice - even if the relationship is non-romantic.
Pulling apart these magnetic bonds can feel hurtful, stressful, and even impossible at times. The feelings cocktail it produces is rarely easy and never fun. But sometimes Love requires us to do hard things, just rest assured it’s always for the greater good of all.
We are all like magnets, positively charged in some areas and negatively charged in others. Having a negative charge isn’t bad - it’s human. The key is to keep it from manifesting as aggression by taking space when necessary. This is the goal. This is transcendence.
