The end of a significant long-term relationship also marks the beginning of a new phase of your life. You might feel like a significant part of you is dying as you face the end of your relationship because, in fact, the old ‘you’ is falling away so that the new ‘you’ can come into fullness. The disintegration period is unsettling, confused, muddled and messy. Imagine the inside of that cocoon before the butterfly takes shape: isn’t it full of dark ooze? But from that dark ooze a beautiful creature emerges. Know that you will emerge from this challenging time in your life stronger, wiser, and more empowered.
““It is always important to know when something has reached its end. Closing circles, shutting doors, finishing chapters, it doesn’t matter what we call it; what matters is to leave in the past those moments in life that are over.”
― Paulo Coelho,
Act of Self Love
