A friend of mine posted this meme on a Facebook page this morning. It again brought to mind a lesson I recently truly integrated.
It hurts when someone we care for leaves or treats us with less care than we have for them.
But, I've learned every person is on their own path and with their own level of emotional maturity and that means sometimes their path leads in a different direction and at the same time, their level of emotional maturity may cause them to handle the diverging poorly.
Understanding this helps in one's own growth and the process of letting go. At least it has for me. It has allowed me to let go more gracefully of that which is not meant for me while wishing positivity upon that person and trusting in the Universe, (or God if you prefer), that it is a step closer to the wonders in store for me.
For love does not mean possession and it does not necessarily mean, "together".
So soak up all of the beautiful "moments" in life and learn to let go, gracefully.
