What did you do for yourself after letting go of a toxic relationship?

Asked by Hawaii_Jake (25799 points ) January 9th, 2014

I recently broke up with my best friend. After a bit of time passed, I began to recognize that I felt free, and it surprised me. I expected to feel sad and grief stricken.

It was only by putting some distance and time between us that I recognized much of her behavior for its passive-aggressive nature and her mastery of manipulation.

I will always have the good memories, and I’m glad for that.

I would like to commemorate those good times and celebrate the release I feel from the yoke of a heavy relationship. If you have experienced this, did you do anything special to mark the transition?

I’m no longer walking on egg shells. I feel so grateful for that. I feel like I’ve got back a part of me I suppressed for a very long time.
