Normally, this would be the kind of thing that I beat myself up about for days on end. I would internalize this as a message that I am inherently unlovable and not worth the effort of reconciliation.
Today I choose to respond differently. Today, I choose to let her go and I am trying to do so with grace.
Some friendships are not of the life-long sort. I tend to hold on to people and try to work things out long after there is any mutual joy left in the relationship. Today, I am recognizing that endings are painful for me, but they are a necessary part of life. I will let her go and focus my energy and love on those friends who are in it for the long haul. I will try to focus on this being about her unwillingness to work things out and not on my worth as a person.
I choose to wish her well and let her go.
How do you handle the inevitable endings in your life?
