“Never cut what can be untied.”~Avia
In this quote, I’m not talking about life-threatening relationships or habits….those clearly need to be cut out of our lives for our survival and highest well-being.
What I’m talking about are the connections in our lives that can be challenging, but also enlightening. Looking back, I recognize I was guilty of cutting people off over the silliest conflicts.
I see now that although frustrating, these challenging relationships could provide many lessons had I kept them in tact.
Now a’days I try to delicately loosen the knots of conflict instead of slicing relationships off altogether.
After all, once a bond is severed, it’s hard to reestablish it.
