MAKE SPACE FOR THE BEAUTIFUL
Often we are afraid to let go of dysfunctional relationships or painful situations. One of the reasons is that usually, a person is afraid that there would be a big void in his or her life after the relationship is over. This makes a person continue to be in that miserable, unhealthy situation.
If we can be strong and brave enough to let go of false-friends and false-loves, temporarily there might be an emotional vacuum, but in the long run, we are giving ourselves a chance to fill it up with positive energy. Focus on the creativity in you and reach out to those who appreciate you genuinely. This time, if love or friendship comes, you will be better able to evaluate it because you are not dependent on it.
But, first and foremost, when needed, weed out all that chokes the garden of your beautiful feelings. This is necessary in order to preserve your best asset: self-respect.
Make space for the beautiful, be it solitude or true love or a dear friend or a burst of creativity.
As Ralph Waldo Emerson has said, “When the half-gods go, the gods arrive.” (the word ‘gods’ here signify beautiful, positive experiences and does not convey any concept of divinity.)
