As many of you know, I’m not a fan of long distance relationships. One big reason is because one of my primary love languages is physical time together. Some may consider this a limiting belief and that could be very true but that is what works best for me.
Unfortunately my relationship with Angela came to an end on January 16. We both showed up in absolute integrity but I personally found it difficult to stay connected through text and calls. Honestly, I find them to be an imperfect medium of communication. There is so much real connecting that can only happen when you are face to face with someone. That’s what’s true for me, anyway.
Now I know that some might say that I announced my relationship publicly too early. Others would say I didn’t wait long enough to begin dating after my relationship ended with Sheri.
What I can say to everyone is that for me, the joy is in the journey and is the most important part of life for me. Along this journey there are many opportunities to continue to learn and grow, which is why I share my personal life experiences as a teacher and try to work with and help others.
I learned so much from Angela. We had a blast each and every time we got together. I’m grateful that she really taught me to be present and live in the moment. That’s what she coaches, and I was so fortunate to have a chance to learn those lessons from her.
And finally, what impressed me the most about her was how much class and wisdom she demonstrated to allow for a truly pleasant ending to a wonderful relationship.
Relationships don’t have to end with drama and ugliness. You just have to be honest about your expectations and aspirations. Sometimes it just isn’t going to work for a variety reasons. It doesn’t make the other person necessarily wrong or a bad person. Part on a good note and look forward to whatever is coming up next for you.
For better or for worse, life is truly a journey. Every person we meet is a blessing along the way. There are always going to be people who come in and out of our lives, some for a short season and others for longer. Each one of them has a purpose and a lesson to teach, if we’re open to seeking it and embracing it.
“Ends are not bad things, they just mean that something else is about to begin. And there are many things that don’t really end, anyway, they just begin again in a new way. Ends are not bad and many ends aren’t really an ending; some things are never-ending.”
