Painful endings are really new beginnings. Often we have to sacrifice something of lesser alignment in order to usher in something of greater alignment. To lose in order to gain. This might be saying good-bye to the job you tolerate or making the courageous choice to leave a co-dependant relationship. Fear of not finding a better job...Fear of being alone...Fear, in general, is never a good reason to stay in anything. Open the window. Trust yourself. Is it time to let the fresh breeze in?
