“When one door closes, another opens; but we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door that we do not see the one which has opened for us.” - Alexander Graham Bell
Early this morning I woke up crying over a dream I had about someone who's no longer a part of my life. A mutual friend was trying to get us to work out our differences and he was having none of it. Awake, it wasn't such a big deal but maybe my real feelings came out in my sleep.
It's no secret I've had a love / hate relationship with this person since 1987. To put it bluntly we were usually either fighting or fucking. Over the last few years there has been nothing but an icy silence.
Still thinking about him, I logged into Facebook and saw the following fitting words of wisdom - There comes a point in your life when you realize who is in your life for a reason and who always will be. Don’t worry about people from your past whose energy (and/or personality) no longer supports your best and highest good . . . perhaps, they are part of that which needs to fall away. And perhaps, they didn’t make it to your future for a reason.
I guess it is time to let it all go.
