Just got an email from one of my clients who is healing through a breakup of a long-term relationship. The holidays are triggering memories.

Replying to the email got me thinking about how much our perspective influences our moods.

For one, if you believe that you've had a "failed relationship" wouldn't that trigger feelings of shame and disappointment?

It's a gift when someone you've been in a relationship with releases you because they're not 100% into it.

Who wants to be in a relationship with someone when it's imbalanced and the other souls is not 100% into it?

Relationships are best when the feelings, interest, investment and commitment are mutual.

Relationships that don't last are not "failures." They've run their course from beginning, middle and end.

We all grow through things in life, ultimately to make us better, including relationships that run their course.

Life is for living. There isn't anyone or any relationship, even the best of relationships, that can take away our joy for living.

Focus on what inspires you, excites you and comforts you. Smile a lot and laugh often, even through the tears. It heals.

Instead of looking at breakups as "failed relationships" I encourage souls to look at breakups as gifts.
