Bear with me on this post…I am feeling a bit salty as I start this.
Thursday marked the closing of a thread of toxic relationships in my life.
At first I was upset-this last friend was someone I had known for a long time, and I expected more from her because of that. I expected to be treated with the consideration that for the first time in our friendship I spoke up for myself. I was kind yet honest, and I was…you know…considerate. But no. Apparently I struck a major cord by communicating that I needed some space so she decided to put permanent space between us.
When I realized this was the manner of which I was getting the boot I had to chuckle. I guess in this sense, my expectations were met.
But as many of us learn the hard way…it is in general, really not healthy to hold expectations with others. Especially the ones you have seen repeat the same negative patterns in other relationships.
Why would I be any different?
And that is totally okay.
I don’t believe every single thing happens for a reason, but I do believe that the last few people who have exited my life in ways that do not honor all the years we’ve shared with each other is a sign I am experiencing the clearing of emotional clutter. Because clearing means creating space for greater things to come.
I would like to thank these last few people who I have parted ways with.
For your time in the past, however we left things it healthily clears my present, but I do honestly wish you well with your future, and release you with love.
I am going to keep it moving looking forward, and up.
