The energies are rattling pell mell through the universe and change is everywhere. Can you relate? In my life, the gods have made it perfectly clear through circumstance and intuition that there are some significant long-term relationships in my life, both professional and personal, that call for conclusion.
For assorted reasons, it’s time to wrap up. I — and hopefully, we – need to look inside the treasure box of our respective relationship, review the highlights — be it lessons learned, progress made, steep hills climbed, moments shared, feelings felt — and say goodbye to what has been for many years. And whatever the circumstance, the bottom line is that it had been good or we wouldn’t have stay connected for so many years.
That said, my soul has spoken. It is time for me to take action, which, I believe, will serve all of us in the long run. However, at this moment in time, it can be challenging, even when I am the one cutting the cord. My aim is never to hurt anyone. Yet, with the conviction of my soul, I am steadfast in the certainty of my decisions, but, admittedly, some days are easier than others.
A psychologist pal of mine shared this bit of wisdom from the one of the major players in the world of psychoanalysis. She thought it might help my letting-go blues and she was right.
It will be easier for both of us if we stay close as we say goodbye.
The concept seems antithetical, doesn’t it? It’s a paradox of parting. How can you stay close when you are moving apart? But, as I sat with these words, I realized they speak to a mindful, compassionate way of working with transparency and trust, finding common ground of understanding, being respectful and loving towards one another as we end our respective relationship. And doesn’t that feel right when you know it’s time to end a relationship with a person dear to you?
