It’s time to let go.
It’s time to stop ignoring the red flags.
And, it’s time to stop making justifications for people, situations, and programs that aren’t serving you.
The uncomfortable truth is that it’s not working.
And, it’s not you … it’s them.
Something I have witnessed (and done myself) far too often is people staying in a coaching program or relationship or situation that is toxic (at worst) or simply not working (at best).
The writing is on the wall. The red flags are abundant and apparent. When you know, you know.
But we keep giving them more and more chances.
Sometimes, change is needed to help us move forward
It’s not because we think things will change … it’s because we’re not ready to accept that they won’t.
So you stay.
Which is a waste of precious time, your most valuable resource.
Time is all you have.
Wasting it on people, situations, or programs that you know aren’t right for you is self-destructive.
Of course change is hard.
But, the long-term consequences of not getting out of those situations are worse.
When you refuse to accept an uncomfortable truth, you’re choosing to accept an uncomfortable future.
The most common example of this is with a particular coaching company that has a track record of doing more harm than good.
I’ve seen people stay for years, while gaining weight and feeling worse about themselves throughout the process.
I’ve watched their complaints get silenced and their concerns be flipped around to make it seem like they are the problem.
The red flags are everywhere.
And they get ignored and justified.
In case you need this reminder … IT’S NOT YOU … IT’S THEM.
Your instincts are correct.
The quicker you accept the uncomfortable truth, the quicker you can move towards the results that you want and the person you want to become.
