Bless the ones that walk away from you, they're just making room for the ones that won't... [Ritu Ghatourey]
It’s a bit odd, this take on making room. I find it comforting though, and it inspires me when I might well BE feeling rather uncomfortable. Letting Go of people is about the hardest and worst thing I have to DO, and I have had to DO it far too often. At least in my opinion.
What is especially curious is that this notion implies there is a finite space that we call “room” and I don’t think that is the case at all. I think there is always enough and more than enough “room” for all sorts of people in a Life.
However, I think this is also a spot-on philosophy. I mean, the blessing of those who walk away. Even those who just turn away. What else CAN a person DO with that?!
Allow the world to live as it chooses, and allow yourself to live as you choose. [Richard Bach]
If I can make room for all sorts of ways, those I understand and like as well those that confound and disturb me, I can live a Life that is rather extraordinary. At least this is what seems to BE so.
I’m grateful to know this.
I love you, Currie
