Are you too afraid or insecure to block people? If so, you’re not alone.
Around the time when I became a Christian, I began to question my motives for blocking people and even assumed it was unchristian of me to practice such a thing. As a result, I stayed in touch and even contacted individuals that made my life a living hell.
I subconsciously believed that God would be super proud of me for tolerating extremely toxic people in my effort to show love. But it didn’t dawn on me until much later that He was actually very disappointed in me for doing so.
Why we don’t block people we know are toxic to us
This is still something I’m trying to wrap my head around.
Like the other day, I was having a conversation with my best friend about how terrible her ex-boyfriend was for abusing her. As much as I tried to convince her that going back to him was the worst decision she could make for herself, she didn’t seem to buy the idea.
She had become so attached to his toxicity that she made countless excuses as to why they could work out together and even went as far as saying that blocking him would be very “unchristian” of her.
As much as this made me uncomfortable, I came to the realization that there are many other women who think and feel this way.
If there’s any reason to not block a person, it definitely shouldn’t be not wanting to come off as being unchristian or unloving. Because the truth is, you can be the most loving person on earth and still block people. It’s wisdom.
I’m here to tell you today that it is absolutely okay to block people, especially if they add no value to your overall well being.
It is high time we stop coming up with excuses as to why we shouldn’t block a person and start blocking them.
