“We need in love to practice only this: letting each other go.

For holding on comes easily–we do not need to learn it.”

Rainer Maria Rilke

Relationships connect us to each other.   Most of the time they are great and make life worth living. Sometimes they are not so good and then HARD to get out of because they are so familiar, so comfortable, and so everyday.

Relationships are complicated and involve many emotions, memories and ties. Even when a relationship is bad, at least it is the known versus the unknown. Even when a relationship is bad, at least it is some human contact that is familiar.

There are some relationships that we have that are not in balance.  They are not healthy.  Many relationships we want and need to improve, set some boundaries, or eliminate all together.

Your Relationships always include YOUFree Yourself

You’ll have to deal with the harder questions about yourself.  You’ll have to figure out what attracted this type of person into your life. People are mere reflections of others.  There is something in that person that is a reflection of you.


Unless you are ready and willing to deal with yourself, this person in your life does not matter. Even though they are making you miserable and bringing you down, and they don’t have your best interest in mind, it doesn’t matter.

It is not this person’s fault BECAUSE the person who is doing these things to you (to “your life”) may…just…really…be…you.

Even if you got rid of that person, you’ll probably attract another person just like them into your life.  Then you’ll have the same type of situations to deal with, just with a new face.

If you’re honest with yourself, haven’t you found that to be the truth?

Learn to love yourself first, find yourself, be good to yourself…you have to start there first.
