Rebuilding Your Towers of Strength

Today we remember that horrific day when the Twin Towers fell.  In watching the footage of that collapse once again, I began to see the symbolism of it in my own life.  For my relationship with my Ex was like those twin towers.  Two people who stood side-by-side, day-after-day, standing strong.  A symbol to others, of how a relationship could survive the years, and the elements of life and still be standing.  Side by side.

The day I was walked out on, life as I knew it crumbled.  I realized the foundation I thought we were based on was a complete sham.  He had been faking standing by my side for many, many years.  His stories were empty.  There was nothing going on in there anymore.  He was an abandoned building…and then he abandoned me.

There was nothing left to rebuild.  Just dust and memories to be swept away by the strong wind of deceit.

I had to be the architect of my New Life.  And I knew NOTHING about doing this on my own.  At first this was terrifying.  It seemed insurmountable.  How could I do this?

I started at the bottom, of course.  The “couldn’t get out of bed” bottom.  But after that grief-rest, I was able to begin to envision a new blueprint for my life.  And I could design every square inch of it myself!

Was it confusing at times? Yes.  Mentally exhausting? Yes.  But now, as I stand on my own rooftop,  I know this is exactly where I was meant to be.  My structure is sound.

So if you are living through being left recently, or still stuck in something that is about to crumble, know that out of the ashes will rise a gleaming tower of your own making.  The one you were meant to live in.  Finally, you will be home!

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!
