It’s Okay to Say “Goodbye!” When You’re Done with a Relationship.
~ Boyz to Men
Even though we don’t necessarily like to think of it this way, every relationship, from our parents and family members, to our co-workers, lovers, and friends, has a beginning and end. And though once upon a time, we were taught to believe that we must stick with our tribe in order to survive, the smaller the world becomes, and the easier we can get the things we need, the more we see that people really come into our lives to serve a purpose or function.
Now before you start thinking I’m being cold or callus, I want to assure you that I’m not referring to using people in the negative context, but more specifically to share a deeper, or different understanding as to why they come into your life, so that when it is time to say goodbye, you can do it more lovingly, and with ease.
To simplify this concept, I’m going to use the modern day analogy of being the star of your own movie, called “Your Life”, of which you are also the producer and director. And, no matter how much you love them, or how great they fill the role you’ve assigned to them, any person that shows up in your movie will never be more than a character, meant to move your story forward.
Take for instance the client who inspired today’s video. She’s had the same group of friends since before high school. And over the course of time, as she’s become more and more successful in the world, they have gone from being peers, to people who leach and feed off of her.
At first she didn’t mind sharing her success, because after all this group had been around her for years. However, after going through a traumatic life event, she could see that, outside of taking a trip down memory lane, they were no longer serving her, or fulfilling the “friend needs” she had to keep her story going.
If this sounds like you, or there is someone you’re having a hard time saying goodbye to, you’re not going to want to miss this episode of Ask. Mys Morgan.
Now I’d love to hear from you…
