Cosmically, it’s time to consider what we really want and need in our relationships of all kinds: romantic partnerships, friendships, professional relationships, spiritual communities, family/tribe. Relationships are meant to support us in caring for ourselves, achieving our destinies, and serving our spirits (internal and external). Do your current relationships allow you to achieve your destiny as you understand it today? There’s neither time nor space for everyone. Who are you allowing to take time and space in your life? Are you holding on to people from the past? Are you keeping “friends” in your life out of obligation rather than connection? Do you have a former partner who you will love until you die, but need to let go of lest you die alone loving someone who doesn’t or can’t love you? Do you live with a false sense of family obligation and feel like you have to remain connected to your family even though they make no effort to remain connected to you? Do you allow your family to treat you in ways that you’d never allow your best friend’s partner to treat them? This is a serious time and you have serious work to do, so anyone who occupies a second of your time better be serious about you, your life, your calling, and the beauty of having your presence in their life. To everyone else, say goodbye. You deserve to have people in your life who understand and celebrate who you are. You deserve to have people in your life who understand and appreciate how far you’ve come and how far you’ve yet to go. Don’t waste your time on people who don’t fall into that category. Don’t waste your time waiting for people who’ve never or not recently shown up to start showing up. Letting go is painful—but not nearly as painful as holding space for people who aren’t there to fill it, not nearly as painful as showing up for people who can’t, won’t, and don’t show up for you in the ways you really need your people to show up for you. Let those relationships die, mourn the loss, and then go find YOUR real people. And while you’re at it, make sure to remind the people who show up for you how much you love and value them. Ache 🙏🏼
