Before you buy something in the store you usually try to find out what you are buying, right? You get a referral, read about the product, look at the reviews, compare prices. Relationships are like this, too. That initial attraction is amazing, exciting, feels great, and it probably is! But over time we begin to learn about these new people and we may find they are not as much of a fit as we originally thought. So why do we get so upset when we realize that someone just doesn’t work in our lives? The loss of the dream. That first rush of connection sets our minds to dreaming of the possibilities and when it doesn’t work out it’s not the person we are sad to see go, it’s our IDEA of what that person could have been for us.
“Today I will look at the people in my life that I have had to let go of and know that the dream of what could have been with them is still possible with someone else.”
