If you look at the state of your life and see the equivalent of a rotten apple, eat it! The rancid relationship is over. He’s not thinking about you.
That thought hanging in your head that he might rejoin you someday is the rotten apple I’m referring to.
Is it still sitting in the pain pantry? That dark place where sad times are still being stored?
Those decaying “what ifs,” ” maybe one day he’ll’s” and “if I had only justs” are rotten apples hanging on the vine. Their stinking clutter starves the delicious fresh life so deserved by the loving, wonderful woman that is you.
Identifying as the one who was left is your rotten apple. Drop it!
Oh Dear Ones, I know you want to hold on to it. Allow me to help.
Let’s say all the pains, ideas and memories are held within the Rotten Apple. Load it up good and don’t forget a single bad memory. I mean it. Even the most painful moment of your relationship with the Ex. Is it good and loaded up?
Listen carefully. I want you to take that apple and eat it. Now. Eat it. One bite or five bites or whatever it takes to get it down the hatch. This is symbolic of course but still. Get a clear picture. Because guess what? You’ve eaten rotten things before. Lots of them and you’ve been just fine.
Ingesting the rotten version of your truth will expel it from your pissed-off pantry shelf for good. Isn’t that what you all want? To have this be done, once for all!
An actual apple tree has plenty of easy to reach, okay apples on the lower branches. But the ones way up just barely out of reach: the top of the tree apples look so much more delicious! But you just can’t get to them.
That’s why you must eat the Rotten Apple. Because once you do, instinctively you’ll discover how to reach all the bright red, juicy, perfect Top of the Tree Apples you deserve.
You would never reach down and eat an apple that fell off a tree days ago and is laying in the gutter. Why are you repeatedly doing that with the story of your relationship?
It’s time to start reaching higher for the beautiful life experiences that have been patiently ripening and begging for your grasp. Reach them now that rotten things don’t. hold you back. Now, that wasn’t so bad, was it?
We all go through major life transitions when relationships end… Through this website, I will share my thoughts as I walk the path of “New-Self” discovery. It doesn’t matter which side of 50 you are on. The real question is, Are you ready to live life? To forge a Path of Your Own Making (For a change!)? Then stop dwelling over the What-Might-Have-Beens and join me. Share your thoughts here, comment on mine, and let’s do this together!
