Today, I had to end a connection with someone. Not fun, but best for all concerned. For the record, just so no one gets into a panic, this was not my life partner. We’re fine. Before making my decision, I hemmed and hawed and hemmed and hawed some more. Nice person, vague about relating, nice person, vague about relating. Then, three tarot images came to mind — the Hanged One, Death, and Temperance.
I began to realise that if I didn’t end the connection (Death) we/I would wait, suspended in “what if”(Hanged One) for quite a while, wondering where our relationship was going. The ending/Death process might sting a bit, but afterwards would come a sense of healing and integration (Temperance). So, with this mini map in mind, I wrote what I needed to say, kindly and lovingly, but definitely.
Gratitude to the tarot structure for reminding me of what is and what could be. Blessed be!
