    Gina, This is so wise. Some people no longer enrich our lives as we grow and evolve. One of the hardest “letting goes” is of those who have been part of our past lives. In my own experience I to take a break from family for a while.
    Choosing who we want to be around is empowering.

    Isn’t this the truth, Gina? Lately I’ve been feeling kind of guilty; I am seeing less and less of two people/friends in my life, but in reality, I’m realizing more and more that they are not really like me. Not in the core of our beings. They care about me and accept me, but don’t really “get” me in some of the ways that are so very intrinsically me. It means finding some new friends – not so easy – but ones that have many more similarities with me, especially on that spiritual/inner awareness level. Life is forever in flux, and I should remember, short.
    Thanks for the reminder. 🙂 Jeanne
