Today I am going to take a break on the posting. My last two substantive posts have been emotionally draining, yet freeing for me. The story about my last relationship was very hard for me to tell and even more difficult for me to be so honest about. I am so appreciative of the wonderful comments I have received and the connections I have made through writing it. It makes me know that I did the right thing by telling the story. I did the right thing for me…which is part of taking care of myself. Tomorrow, as promised, I will post on the topic of “Pet Abandonment.”
Until then, I will leave you with one of my favorite quotes from one of my favorite scholars about the beauty of connection (yeah, I had to get academic on you):
“From [these] intimate attachments a person draws his strength and enjoyment of life and, through what he contributes, he gives strength and enjoyment to others. These are matters about which current science and traditional wisdom are at one.” -John Bowlby
Have a great Tuesday!
