“I am learning to love the sound of my feet walking away from things that are not meant for me.”
When relationships shift or end I have learned to be vigilant as I keep my ego on a short leash to assure it doesn’t play out the narratives of break ups and suffering it has been conditioned to believe.
I do not allow it to denigrate the other to make itself feel superior, I do not allow it to wallow in thoughts of a victim mindset, I do not allow my ego to take its feelings and thoughts to social media that can in any way that can be hurtful and disrespectful of another’s privacy.
Instead I remind it of the good times shared with that person, the good traits and deeds of the other I appreciate, I keep reminding it of my wholeness, capacity for creating joy and the beautiful network of love and connection I have surrounded myself with… and I make it reflect on the on the mistakes I made in relating with that one and on the lessons to be learned from it.
Regardless how unfair, low or dark the other might act in their self-inflicted pain I will keep to the higher road, reminding myself that I used to do similar disservice to myself and others when I was less experienced and insightful and deepening in my compassion for them as I forgive myself my past mistakes.
I know that whatever is leaving my life or changing form is only making space for a renewal and better things to come and so I can let go with more dignity and integrity than before and without succumbing to lower vibrational lures of my subconscious.
I will no longer be beholden to narratives of disempowerment, scarcity, victim mindset and unlove and thank all my teachers and tutors along this pathway to freedom and sovereignty.
Yes, I love the sound of my feet walking away from the neurotic, self-defeating scripts of break ups and relationshifts as I keep choosing love and freedom!
