Endings Are Necessary

on

Things end. They just do. The reason this quote, “The day you’re born you begin to die,” is so depressing is because it’s technically true.

But again, you get to decide what you do with that information. There’s no overarching force dictating your need to obsess over that or deny it — you can acknowledge life’s movement and progression without the added weight of surprise when it’s experienced.

Of course, this can do little to soften the sting when something does end, especially abruptly. Though very natural when living in a linear timeline (Arrivalplot theories excluded), endings don’t feel natural when you encounter them; it’s like your heart is synced with the harmony of a different song. That’s why the healthy emotional processing mentioned at the beginning is so important to prioritize.

Once you do that, starting over can be an incredible opportunity to claim the present moment, the chance to be keenly aware of how all anyone has is right now. When something ends, against your will or not, you’re the only one who can decide when that ending transitions into a beginning. When you’ve first allowed yourself to acknowledge that seasons (therefore endings!) do exist, you’ll have an easier time stepping into what comes after. And maybe even believing that there are greater things still ahead.

Starting over can be an incredible opportunity to claim the present moment. When something ends, against your will or not, you’re the only one who can decide when that ending transitions into a beginning.

      Getting to the next level always requires ending something, leaving it behind, and moving on. Growth itself demands that we move on. Without the ability to end things, people stay stuck, never becoming who they are meant to be, never accomplishing all that their talents and abilities should afford them.

    Great point about whether a person decides to make an ending a new beginning or not.
