Most of us are familiar with the idiom, "All good things must come to an end". This quote comes from Geoffrey Chaucer an English author from the 1300's and the line was first seen in his poem, "Troilus and Crisyede" outlining the falling out of two lovers in ancient Troy.
Although an old idiom, the feeling of good things ending or perhaps fear, a warning, or regret of losing a positive moment in time affects us all. This often occurs when relationships end or friendships are lost.
Another way for us to look at this is to frame endings as a new opening or healing a part of ourselves that no longer requires that person's presence in our life. This is often a new ripe space for further growth and renewal.
We may cherish friendships and relationships that have dwindled yet simultaneously honor our growth and potential for new harmony and connection.
