The phrase “losing my religion” originated in the southern region of the United States. It means losing one’s temper or civility or feeling frustrated and desperate. Often times we find ourselves in situations that causes us to lose our religion, but is it worth it? This question is one that we should be asking ourselves on a regular basis, especially when it comes to our relationships. Certain people in our lives can become triggers and before we recognize what is going on we are losing our tempers. We are so frustrated we can’t even function. We end up acting out of character and saying things that should not be said. Words do hurt and once you say certain things you cannot repair the damage that they cause. It is best to remove yourself from the situation. It is better to not engage in conversations that will cause you to lose your temper and act out of character.
This also applies to romantic relationships. Some romantic relationships become so toxic that you are constantly engaged in confrontations. The toxicity can alter your personality to the point where you can’t even recognize yourself. If that is case, that relationship is definitely not worth “losing your religion”. It is problematic and you should not feel obligated to continue it. Unhealthly romantic relationships will only cause you more harm than good in the long run. The hurt they cause can be long lasting.
So ask yourself this question often. Is it worth losing your religion?
