Square Peg ● Round Hole







When I embarked on my spiritual cleanse last year, I wasn’t sure how it would unfold, but I did know that it was necessary.   For me, when I feel stuck, it is a natural recourse to evaluate  my relationships.   It seems odd to believe that people can actually hold you back from evolving, but in my experience, that is exactly what happened.

Over the course of a year, there has been a rebirth of sorts.   While disengaging from relationships that were once full is difficult, the benefits keep unfolding for me.    Relationships are an investment –  an investment of time and love.    Stagnant bonds lead to unhealthy interactions.   I  seek bonds that nourish my soul and allow me to continue to flourish.   Those are the connections that are worthy of my time.

Of course, there is a grieving period because the bond wasn’t always toxic. I am a firm believer that relationships serve a higher purpose.   It pushed me out of my comfort zone in order to explore a new part of myself.   I was definitely fearful about my decision, but without that nudge, I would be standing still.  Instead, I have taken the time to reevaluate and there has been a shift.  My authentic self has expanded allowing me to embark on a journey of new discoveries.   I am finally becoming the person I hoped that I would be.  In the process, new connections are emerging that allow me to explore this latest growth spurt.     Life is too short to be engaged in lopsided relationships and, frankly, I am worthy of more.
