“…our willingness to embrace steps…”
I met for coffee with Jacob whose long-term relationship had just suddenly ended. Trying to bolster Jacob’s feelings I jovially offered, “So, now you’re free!” Jacob looked up from his coffee and morosely replied, “No, I’m not. What I am is lost.” Then I asked, “Were you ever happy in the relationship?” Jacob took a moment to think and then replied, “I was but then the happiness changed somehow.” Happiness and relationships have a way of morphing! What used to make us happy now leaves us empty and what once satisfied us now doesn’t! What is going on?
We are insisting that happiness comes in only ONE model sort of like a toddler insisting since he loves peas he will always love peas! Well Life often doesn’t work that way! Things change and we need to learn to love the changing!
