We’ve been there, with our relationships, including the ones we have with ourselves. We make promises to ensure that commitment sticks, to make sure it doesn’t change. “Friends til the end,” saying, ‘I do,’ confirming it, as if it will not change, until the universe says, I’ll show you the impermanence of life. “BAM.” The very thing you protected you projected to fall apart instead of letting things fall into place, trusting life, trusting yourself and trusting others. It is an energic vibration. Within that brings it all together and tears it apart. All these life anxieties get the best of us sometimes, some we can control, but most are simply the natural part of this life, and we don’t get to know why that is.
When it falls apart, it can take away something in us, or it can restore something greater. It’s time to STOP needing those guarantees to make sure we get what we want. It is time to trust life, trust ourselves and the people, place and things in our life.
Don’t hold together what must fall apart. The familiar life crumbles so the new life can begin. Things may be different; a foundation might be broken a bit, but in time you will gain strength, build trust in yourself to know that you don’t need to protect everything thing around you, in you. It is a state of being. The law of attraction is very powerful if you don’t believe that keep saying or doing one thing and feeling another.
“When we protect ourselves so we won’t feel pain, that protection becomes like armor, like armor that imprisons the softness of the heart.”
