💫 I was inspired to write this out today, so I pray it finds the person(s) that needs to read/hear it. 💫
Its okay to out-grow people. Even the ones you care deeply about. Its okay to thank them for their involvement in your life and move on. Go about it gracefully, if you can.
I’ve come to the conclusion that outgrowing people is a symptom that YOU are growing as a person/soul, and that you’re on the right track to being the best version of yourself.
It’s unfortunate that it can be a painful thing to go through . . . Because you can really care about the people that you outgrow and really want the best for them.
BUT if they’re not ready to learn anything, or to be receptive to new ideas or ways of thinking or anything like that… letting them go is the best thing that you can do for them too.
You’ve done YOUR job, you’ve done YOUR part.
Hell, you never know how their life is going to turn out anyway.
You might’ve said something that struck them one day that they’re not going to remember instantly… BUT months or years down the road, it’ll click.
We don’t know the “how”, “what”, or “when” of how things are going to happen! You might run into them again and see that they’ve gone through some exponential growth.
The thing about it is, when you start trying and doing the best that you can in order to live your higher purpose…Guess what : when you outgrow these people and let them go..it serves your higher purpose, and it serves the universe’s higher purpose, and it serves their higher purpose. Whether or not they understand that…is not your job
