It’s good for us to feel this broken heart, a little—that’s where the light gets in, as a wise man once put it.
Feeling that sadness, that openness, that fresh air—gives us the gift of empathy, which grounds us in this present moment, instead of habitual fantasy or arrogance.
And then, now, for the first time—we have the chance at genuine relationship.
…and that relationship? It’s with ourselves.
And then—now—maybe—for the first time—we’ll be ready to commit fully.
