When we’re gripping onto something, as if our lives depended on it, our hands aren’t free and open to receive anything. Should someone else determine separation for us, particularly if what we’re leaving behind is important, allowing for things to settle is crucial.
We hold on to our comfortable existence because change and things unknown can appear to be frightening. Growth happens when we venture forward in spite of fear. Departing can be painful, yet may be necessary for us to see new possibilities. Setting free what we depend upon can at times be the best choice for all parties.
