The First Time

The first time a new relationship is about to end, usually somewhere within the first few months, when the “in love” bubble bursts, and the illusion of perfection is shattered (as it always is). That’s when there is the first opportunity for a more genuine, deeper intimacy to emerge. A love beyond the illusion of how the other is supposed to be, the fixed images, and projected ideas.
That’s when the opportunity arises to see, feel, and love each other as we truly are… in all our humanness.

The first time a relationship is about to end, that’s when it has a chance to really begin.
