Do you know the saying that you should never burn a bridge? I’m not sure I agree with it, as a rule, to live my life by.
What if the place I want to leave is toxic in some way? What if the relationship was impacting my mental health? What if the situation I find myself in does not align with who I am?
I think there can be a time and a place to burn a bridge. You can always rebuild the bridge if it seems right. However, it might be the right thing to do unless you can meet each other in the middle of the bridge.
Look after yourself, and you’ll find it easier to lead others even if that means burning the odd bridge. You can always rebuild it.
You’ve got this.
