At some point in time we break-up with our partner, spouse or even friends. Often it’s based on someone not getting something they need from the other, and is externally referenced. Meaning we are looking from the outside in to solve the ‘problem’. What if there was a different way?
We are always creating our world. In the past four years I have had two significant breaks ups. One was my marriage of 16 years, the other with my current partner of two years. What I’m noticing is a huge shift in how I am moving through the more recent one. For starters, it was an internally referenced decision, one reached based on the conclusion we were at an impasse, and rather than stay the course, and compromise, we choose to dissolve what we knew of our relationship.
The break-up was not because we don’t love or care very deeply for each other, it’s the exact opposite. It’s because we care so deeply. It has become an invitation to consider the creation of a different space for US to emerge.
