How to Let Go of Relationships That Are No Longer Serving You

Do you struggle to let go of relationships that are no longer serving you?

Relationships Are Like Plants

Think of your relationships like a plant. You meet someone and drop a seed. That seed, that relationship, takes root, and grows and grows until it emerges into fullness. You water it and tend to it, but when the season passes, and it’s time for the plant to wither and return to the earth, all you can do is honor that natural cycle.

Embrace this ebb and flow – the end of a relationship is not a failure, but rather a natural part of your journey to inner freedom. 

All Relationships Come to Completion At Some Point

People enter and exit your life. Allow yourself to understand that this is a natural course of action. All relationships come to completion. You can complete with grace or you can complete with chaos.

When you first get into a relationship, there’s this meeting, there’s this convergence of energy. There’s a lot of excitement. And at some point you have the realization that the relationship is no longer working for you.

How to Let Go of Relationships That Are No Longer Serving You

Once you realize that, all you need to do is sit down with yourself, open your mind, open your heart, and ask yourself is this relationship continuing to serve me?

Start focusing on what it is you want to experience next in your life. And then have a conversation with those around you and inform them of the life changes that you’re going to be making.

As you inform them, they’re going to be able to get out of your way, and you’re going to move to the next stage in your life.

In order to get where you’re going, you have to let go of some places where you’ve been.
