They are like 'cab driver #2' in a movie...no deep emotional connection, but part of the story none the less.
Then there are those who play a huge role in it.
They teach and inspire me.
They challenge my beliefs or inspire me to a greater purpose.
Or they are doing things that I don't feel right about
I hold on out of a deep sense of loyalty for what the relationship once was.
I would fight and hold on, often until I was hurt too badly to
do anything but let go.
When their part comes to an end, even though I know the
relationship wasn't healthy, it's very hard for me to let them go.
Today as I tended the plants in my garden
I came to a realization...
Plants have to be allowed the space to change and grow
And if they aren't, they will die
If I'm so desperately holding onto relationships that aren't growing
I am not allowing myself the space I need to change and grow
I am not allowing the other person to change and grow either
So today, I'm choosing to go into every relationship with the
knowledge that it will come to an end
I can embrace change when it comes knowing
whether I label it as 'good' or 'bad'
it's all from Goddess and for my highest good
I will treasure each connection I have for however long I have it.
