Reflections on Toxic Relationships-A Lesson from Humpty Dumpty

In contemplating the intricacies of love and relationships, I am compelled to share a lesson through the lens of the Humpty Dumpty story—acknowledging the inevitability of failure and the valuable lessons to extract from it. If the person with whom you share a relationship is entangled in toxicity, it necessitates a profound honesty with oneself about the choices made moving forward. While the desire to salvage the relationship is understandable, it is crucial to recognize the limits of trial and error within reason. Following any fall, the journey toward personal growth becomes paramount to become the highest version of oneself. Investing time and effort in self-knowledge fosters confidence and cultivates an enriched, abundant mindset, firmly grounded in an understanding of one's worth. This elevated perspective influences decision-making, making future choices resoundingly clear. In unequivocal terms, toxicity is deemed unacceptable. Acknowledging the seemingly irrational attachment to toxic relationships, it is a stark reality that many are ensnared by the shortcomings of those they profess to love. This often stems from a failure to work on personal growth, mirroring the narrative of Humpty Dumpty—a character who, after a great fall, could not be restored by all the King's Horsemen and Kingsmen. The lesson here is clear: by refusing to address our individual issues and hold our partners accountable, we perpetuate suffering. The narrative of Humpty Dumpty serves as a cautionary tale, urging us to learn from our falls and break the cycle of perpetuating brokenness, which, in turn, impacts not only our relationships but extends its reach to families and communities. Sincerely, Organically me, Tamika

Some might say that it’s crazy to be in love with toxicity. The truth of the matter is,

many of us are very addicted to the shortcomings of the person we profess to love.

Largely due to our own lack of working on ourselves to become our higher selves,

sort of like the story of Humpty Dumpty. Humpty Dumpty sat on the wall, he/she

had a great fall, and all the King’s Horsemen and all the Kingsmen couldn’t put

Humpty Dumpty back together again. The more we refuse to address our issues

and to not hold our mates accountable, the more we suffer.

The moral of this story is to learn from the fall, but, we continue to feed that animal

of brokenness leading to the deprivation of our relationships, families, & communities!
