I interact with a LOT of ppl during the course of my days. A woman I see often pulled me aside the other day and asked for my advice about a relationship killing her spirit. Painful actions, loads of manipulation, walking papers. She's been pleading w/her partner for a whole year
She's not a fool. She's just a woman who loves with a whole heart. After hearing the details, I gave her some homework:

1. For the next seven days ask yourself how this person and this relationship makes you *feel.*

When I am with __ I feel __.
When I talk to __ I feel.
2. For the next 7 days read these two quotes. Ask yourself if this relationship, feeling as you describe, is where you *belong.*

Do I belong with a person who makes me feel __.

Do I belong in a relationship that makes me feel __.

Can I be my FULL self in this relationship?
And I shared this tweet with her that brought her to tears. We hugged. I told her I'll be back next week. And I reminded her:

"Remain whole for the better thing."

Sometimes we just need a little reminder that it's okay to let go. A job. A relationship. A dying loved one. Anything our heart feels deeply attached to. Let go. You will survive.
