It’s one of the most powerful things you can do, and also the hardest.
What happens when you outgrow an intimate relationship?
Most of us have been there at some point. The gut-wrenching realisation that you have to walk away from someone you love; someone you have a shared history with.
Things don’t actually have to be bad; just not right.
You know. You always know. And the knowing grows and gains momentum.
It starts with dissatisfaction, morphs into resentment and then becomes malignant as you try to force it down, reshape yourself and compromise your way through it.
The simple truth is that some relationships are seasonal. In the same way you can’t stop winter from coming, you can’t prevent the end of a relationship that has run its course. You can try to outrun the inevitable but the truth will catch up with you. It always does.
My advice? Face it. And then walk away.
You’ll look back many times but it will be from a much healthier place. A place where you have honoured your own truth.
