There comes a time when you must come to a healing place.
Some say they feel connected and at peace by the ocean and for others it’s being among the plants and trees.
Life can be challenging, emotions can be draining.
It’s hard to go on with your normal day to day life when your troubles are weighing you down.
Maybe you don’t even realise you need a break, that your body and mind have had enough.
And then suddenly you find yourself called to a place that is peaceful and calm. Upon arrival, you relax your shoulders and audibly exhale. You had no idea how much you needed to be there.
Burning bridges often feels necessary. It’s normal to no longer want certain people in your life to the extent where you hope for them to become nothing more than a distant memory.
When people feel that way they rarely take the power of time into account. Cutting ties and setting the bridge alight (metaphorically of course) might be the right option in the moment but a few weeks, a year or even 18 months later your feelings might change.
As easy as it is to pull faces and roll your eyes at lifes countless cliches, time really is a great healer.
It’s not to say that you should never remove people from your life but instead to remember that it doesn’t always have to be a permanent thing.
Yes, let bridges burn but don’t be afraid to extinguish them.
