Sadness is not an entity unto itself. It is a part of you. It is a necessary part. Grief is a necessary process that helps you come to terms with changing truths. Anytime we grow, it seems there can be sadness and grief over what is left behind. The you that you are leaving behind, the events, the relationships, have helped you to arrive at where you are now. Along with the challenges of those old contexts you are leaving are the gifts that were given and received. There are always gifts, and truly none of the love will ever be lost. Still, right now the sadness must be honored. The growing pains must be felt. Your wholeness invites it.
