It can be a dizzying task when we are trying to navigate through uncertain seas. They don't prepare you for this, when you're facing a break up of a life once lived. 

Of course the framework for a breakup or relationship shift is laid long ago, these things don't just happen. They are a solid structure of neglect that stretches far back into the past. 

That doesn't make it any easier to navigate the shifting sands or trying to make sense of it all.

Coming to grips that your life is going to change is one thing. But when you start to pull away at the threads and unravel the tapestry that you created, you start to see how much was entwined. The family, the friends, the home-base, everything that crumbles and falls away. 

For so long I had tried to side-step the inevitable, tried to not deal with what needed to be done. But now, everything called to my bones to say what needed to be said and do what needed to be done.

Let me bleed, I thought. The sooner I tear it all apart, the sooner something beautiful can be reborn from the ashes. Don't run from it, walk through the fires, I reminded myself. Freedom lies on the other side. 

Amidst the ensuing chaos and the bleeding of a life once lived, I take solace that one day this is all going to be better. And one day I'm sure it will all make a terrific book, I keep telling myself.

Until then, I follow the path forward that so many have tread before me, finding solidarity in the freedom walk of those that have rebuilt. We shall rise again, this day and all days. 

There will be days when I will still grieve, when I will be angry or hurt. That's inevitable. But woven into even that is the knowing that everything is going to be all right, and trusting in that truth, that there is hope shining on the horizon.

And though there may be endings that are occurring, this is not the end of me.
