Weathering the storms of relationships

wordswag_1533185443973Within every relationship no matter how good or bad you have perceived it to be, there is always goodness and reason to celebrate. Most of my romantic relationships have been tumultuous and not really the kind you want to write home about, unless you are writing a suicide note, just kidding. I choose not to focus on the drama and the pain in my heart and head over those relationships, but instead on the beauty and magic they possessed. As I type these words and feeling of sadness arise in me as I reflect on the not so good times, a smile grows across my lips, for from the tumultuous chaotic feelings and emotions blossomed and emerged a more beautiful and stronger me like a rose; full and vibrant with life.

We are just as nature in reference to ourselves in relationships. When the seed is planted in the ground it germinates, grows roots and pops through the surface of the earth. Then it becomes vulnerable to all the effects of the weather and the creatures that cross its path. Sometimes the storms are incredibly rough and it is hard to stay grounded to the earth as the wind and rain whips the plant to and fro, with the possibility of hail that hit so hard and stinging as though a swarm of bees has just attacked. After the storm has passed, we once again experience the feeling of being in the new day to witness the sun rising and the warmth of its rays like the hug from our loved one that let’s us know we are ok to live another day. The sapling gets stronger from that experience and continues to grow, always reaching to the bright light of the sun to become more of what it is.

I know what you’re thinking. You are saying to yourself, but that is not always how it goes. Some times the sapling dies or maybe it grows into a big strong tree and dies later from lightning striking it or someone cuts it down. I say to you that all death in any way shape or form is only a new beginning and chance to be again. However small or big, long or short the relationship is; it is, was and will always be a part of who you are and who you became from the experience. So, if you are suddenly struck down or cut off at the knees in a relationship, please remember that you were once a tree and as every tree does; you have scattered your seeds all about, so where would you like to begin again?

If you are reading this it means you are not dead, maybe a little wounded, but not dead.

About angela zeyn

Hello, I am Angela. About me is a big question, one that opens up the door to all my vulnerabilities and fears. I could stay very shallow and tell you the basic list of what I do, but seriously what is the point in that? For me this is a breakthrough site to let myself out of my own box to express who I am, where I have come from, where I am, how I feel about it and where I am going. At this point, it's time for me to put these stories out into the world without giving a flying fuck if the grammar is perfect or if the sentence runs on into oblivion. (After 40 they say you don't care as much, they are right). I'm hoping that in sharing these fun, mystical, magical, dark and profound, sometimes metaphoric stories of my life it helps others to awaken and feel connected in knowing they are not alone on this wild ride of life. As the Grateful Dead sing..."What a long strange trip it's been" and I'm excited to share mine with you. If you are interested to know my skills and abilities, please check the link for my website.

    I love this! I am grateful for every relationship I’ve ever been in, because they’re gifts and opportunities to learn our life’s lessons. I didn’t always feel this way, but I deeply know – as you do – that each relationship that flows in and out of our lives helps us peel away the layers to becoming more of who we each are. Beautiful words, Angie! xox
