This move is showing me who cares - who is really there rooting for me and wanting to remain connected to me - and who is not.
I suppose all significant changes inspire those around us to either rise up or fall away. And we never really know if they'll be joining us beyond the threshold until the time comes.
There's a lot going on in my world right now and I'm learning that some relationships are not what I thought they were.
I felt much more of a kinship to them than they did to me. Sigh.
Gratefully my core circle never shifts. My beloveds will always be my beloveds and our love only deepens through the years.
So I'll just trust that the ones who are there for me during this time and have been there for me through all that came before, are the only ones that matter once I get to the other side.
There will be some who'll be left behind but they won't even notice because they dropped off long ago and I did not know until recently.
This isn't a pointed post. I talk to people directly when I am concerned about something between us as all of my beloveds know.
This is an overall experience I'm having with multiple people lately and it bums me out. Especially because some of those people were those that I approached in the past to check in to make sure things were ok between us because I was feeling a shift.
I felt them leaving...
But they each reassured me that everything was fine. That nothing had changed.
Yet now they are not part of my world in the way that they once were (or at all), and none of them have reached out or connected despite knowing that I'm leaving the province.
And that is how I know that we weren't sharing the same friendship, and that my hunches were right.
I will learn to let them go now that I know though.
But I will miss what I thought we had.
With love and gratitude for the ones who remain,
