When someone takes you for granted you need to walk away from them. Though this may not be easy as it seems to be. You may be thinking that you can just make up your mind and walk away from them.
But it takes so much for you to walk away from someone who is taking you for granted.
In this article, I will be sharing how you can walk away from someone who is taking you for granted very easily.
It may be not that easy but if you put your mind to it you will manage to do it.
You don’t need to stay with someone who doesn’t value you.
Tell yourself that you deserve more than that.
Without further ado let me get into this topic.
How to walk away from someone who takes you for granted;
1. Make up your mind about it.
If you want to walk away from someone who takes you for granted this is the first thing you have to do.
You have to make up your mind about it.
There is no way you will be able to walk away from them if you won’t make the decision.
Tell yourself that you are tired of being taken for granted.
Channel all your anger on how that relationship has destroyed your life and use that as a motivation to walk away from such kind of a relationship.
Don’t think of any good you have gotten from that relationship because that will prevent you from making the great decision of walking away from that person.

Once you have made up your mind that you don’t want anything from that relationship than to walk away then you should go ahead and start disconnecting yourself from that relationship.
The more you stay in that relationship the more you will be putting yourself a risk of being stuck in that relationship.
Don’t start thinking positive about them that they will one day change.
This kind of thought will make you get stuck with someone who keeps taking you for granted forever.
Make up your mind that the relationship with that person is no longer worth something fighting for and this will give you the courage to walk away with your head high from that relationship.
2. Know your worth.
When you are trying to leave such kind of a relationship your partner might try to convince you to stay.
This is something that will happen because your partner will still want to keep you and keep on treating you bad.
Since your partner knows that you are in love with him or her this will make you want to stay and that is why he/she will make the effort to convince you to stay.
When your partner convinces you to stay when you have made up your mind about walking away from him or her then you should not look back.
Know your worth. When you know your worth this will even give you more courage to walk away from that person without thinking much.
How can you know your worth?
You can know your worth by thinking of how many people you turn down to be in that relationship.
Think of the good things you have achieved in your previous relationships.
Think of what you want to do with your life 5 years from now. Think of all the positive things that you have accomplished in your life and this will make you know your worth.
Once you know your worth you will not accept being in a relationship with someone who will keep taking you for granted.
You will not want to be in a relationship with someone who doesn’t value you.
And again, this will give you the power to walk away from that relationship very easily.
But if you don’t know your worth and someone convinces you to stay in that relationship making you think that no one else will appreciate you in their lives then you will get stuck.
You will feel bad about yourself, your self-esteem will be low and you will never think that anyone else will want you in their lives and you still get stuck in that relationship with the same person that takes you for granted.
3. Start by cutting off the communication.
If you want to want to walk away from someone who is taking you for granted, after making up your mind about it and knowing your worth then it’s time for you to cut off the communication.
Communication is the soul of any relationship. Without communication, most relationships will end up failing.
You aim to walk away from this relationship and this will do the trick.
You can start by cutting off the communication with them if you want to walk away from them.
Since they are taking you for granted you can choose not to answer their calls and texts.
Ignore their texts and calls and don’t feel guilty for doing it.
This person has been taking you for granted, he or she doesn’t know your worth.
So, don’t recognize his or her worth.
The best thing you can do for yourself is to walk away from him or her.
If they keep on texting and calling you even after you choose to ignore them then you can now block them and delete their numbers.
When you block them and delete their numbers they will not be able to reach out to you and since they are taking you for granted they will never bother to check up on you.
This will make the relationship with them grow weaker simply because you will not be in touch.
And this will give you the chance to walk away from them.
4. Distance yourself from them.
When you have cut off the communication the next thing to do is to distance yourself from them.
If someone is taking you for granted you should leave.
Don’t waste your time in such kind of a relationship you deserve more than that.
When you stop talking to them and they get closer to you trying to convince you to get together with them and fix things then you should not listen to them.
Distance yourself from them. I know there is that feeling within you that will feel like this person is going to change and start seeing your value.
And you might even be tempted to go back into that relationship with them.
Don’t listen to that feeling at all. You now know your worth and it doesn’t allow you to stay in that relationship with them.
Take your advice and walk away from them because they have been taking you for granted for so long.
You have a better shot at making your life better. You don’t need them in your life.
Distance yourself from them, ignore them and focus on yourself.
The longer you distance yourself from them the more you will get used to being alone.
And you will not bother reaching out to them because you will be focusing on yourself and things that make you happy.
If that person was taking you for granted, it’s clear that you were not happy in that relationship.
You were just forcing yourself onto him or her.

With the distance you have created you now have a better chance to take good care of yourself and never allow anyone to make you feel low again.
5. Never look back when making this decision.
Walking away from someone you used to love is a hard thing even if they were taking you for granted.
You will feel the pull that will keep making you want to go back into that relationship.
This is something normal because you were in love with that person though he or she was taking you for granted.
You will feel so lonely when you make such kind of decision and you will even end up losing some of your friends.
Not all your friends will support you on that kind of decision, especially when what they see from him or her is an amazing person.
They only see that because they have never been with him or her.
You are the only person who knows him or her better.
The loneliness and the loss of friends should not make you look back again.
You should not even let any of your friends convince you to go back to him or her because he or she will change.
Don’t listen to such a voice at all.
Remember, you know your worth and you made up your mind about walking away from him or her.
So, don’t let anything turn you back after making such kind of decision.
6. Get something to do that will keep you focused.
Once you have managed to walk away from that relationship the next thing you should do is to find something to do that will keep you focused.
Find something to do because it’s not going to be easy if you will be idle.
You will start missing the same person who took you for granted and this might make you think of going back to him or her.
Once you are out think of something that you will focus on, that will keep you busy and distracted.
If you are a student you can choose to go back to your books. Focus on your career and think of the things you want to achieve in life.
Think of the goals you set but you were keeping them aside day by day by finding new excuses every day.
Now that you are away from someone who was taking you for granted it’s time for you to make him or her regret for not seeing your worth.

Focus on building your life and career and this will keep you distracted.
It’s a healthy way to make yourself productive as you make the best out of the freedom you now have.
You don’t have anyone to pull you down. You don’t have anyone to make you feel bad about yourself. All you have are the positive vibes.
If you are not a student you can choose to volunteer in any organization near you.
You can choose to volunteer in a library or an orphanage, these are just my preferences but you can choose anywhere you want to volunteer.
As long as it’s a place that will keep you distracted and you will add value to someone else.
When you do such kinds of things you will never think of going back to that person who used to take you for granted.
He or she will later on regret for not being a good person to you.
But it will be too later for them.
7. Be grateful that you did walk away.
Now that you have walked away from them and you feel so free don’t close yourself up.
Enjoy your life. Don’t keep on thinking of what will now happen to you.
Make the most out of your life.
You can choose to travel the world (my favourite thing) meet new people, explore different places and enjoy every second of your life.
Don’t be based on the negatives.
Don’t be afraid to make friends and get yourself in a new relationship.
Not all people will be there to take you for granted.
But what I can tell you is that you should never rush to any relationship after you have walked away from someone who was taking you for granted.
Enjoy yourself and be grateful that you are one of the few that made such a huge decision.
Life may be hard on you but trust me, you will pull it through.
When someone takes you for granted they don’t deserve you. You should walk away from them because they will never give you the happiness you are seeking.
Walk away from anyone who treats you like a piece of trash. Don’t think that no one else will welcome you in their lives.
Not all people will treat you the same way he or she does.
If he or she doesn’t see your worth, someone else will just feel it when you are close to them even without knowing you.
So, this is a huge decision to make especially if you were so attached to that person.
You have to cut off all the feelings and think of what is best for you. This is what will enable you to walk away from him or her.
