Saying Goodbye

Standard

It can be difficult to say goodbye to loved ones who have passed, to relationships that didn’t work out, to children going off to college, to sons or daughters moving out of the house/getting married, to active military personnel leaving to serve their country, close friends or relatives who are moving far away, etc. How do we deal with these types of situations when these people have been part of our lives for many years? We have to remember that death is imminent, and in most other cases, people are actually making these choices for themselves. It is natural to experience separation anxiety at first, but we have to learn to let go and become unattached to people. We can remember the good times we shared and wish them well in their new endeavors. People come in and out of our lives for specific reasons, and no matter what, we have to let them be FREE. It should be comforting to know that everything is as it should be. When we change, so will our circle of influence (people we associate with in life). Life comes full circle and we may cross paths again. To overcome sadness and grief, reach out to God and ask for strength and courage. God is always there for us and always will be.

About deborah parise

My mission in life has always been to encourage and uplift as many people as possible. I became passionate about spirituality and the law of attraction several years ago. I desperately wanted to know more about myself and how to become better. Through my actual life experiences, knowledge, and wisdom, I have come to know the true meaning of life. I have learned that our life experiences are our greatest teachers. I am doing what I love best... inspiring others to become who they really are and to fulfill their purpose in life. We must realize that PEACE and LOVE are within each and every one of us, always. Let us unite as one; support and help each other, and make a difference in this beautiful world. I wish you abundant joy and success in life! ~deborah~

  1. I used to have so much trouble saying goodbye to people and letting go until I came across the works of Brian Weiss. He is a psychiatrist of high standing that stumbled upon past life regression by accident and eventually became so convinced it was real and not only that, a exceptionally useful party of therapy, that he put his whole career on the line to write about it. I have experimented with this concept myself since reading his books and I now completely believe it too.

    As a result of all of this I see life very differently. I no longer see everything as confined to this life, this lifetime is like one small chapter out of a very big book, and not only that, the people they make the most impact on you in this lifetime are probably the same souls that you have come across before and will come across time and time again (not everyone, just some, the ones I think help you along your spiritual path). You’ve probably had that experience when you meet someone yet instantly they feel so familiar? That person is probably part of your soul family. I no longer feel the need to hold so tight to anything, it all seems so much less significant, it’s a small part of a bigger whole. I don’t think goodbye anymore, in my mind I say thank you for your part in my life this time, see you again next time. I’m also convinced that my grandparents that have passed help me now as much as they ever did. Even death doesn’t mean goodbye, it’s just a different type of connection.

    • Thank you so much for your comments. I am always learning and willing to understand other people’s viewpoints. I have avoided the subject of death until I was confronted with my mother’s passing last year. She was my greatest teacher. I will indeed look into Brian Weiss’ books. I want to learn more about myself and become even better!

  2. I believe you have a very good message to share. It’s important to help people, and it’s also important to let them know who you are and what you are doing…which you are also doing. Very positive reinforcement 🙂 I love your WoW logo 🙂 I am also addicted to it and love acknowledging it. 🙂
