When you were in the youthful phase of your ex-relationship, you probably felt as if you’d given him the key to your heart. This romantic notion was no doubt long forgotten when it all ended in that painful, ugly way. And when it ended, he no longer held that key anymore. Symbolically he gave it back, or you retrieved it. And what happened to it then? Perhaps you did as I did. I took that key and used it to lock my heart good and shut! No more heartbreak for me!! A Heart under lock and key was the way to go!
But now, I see this ownership of lock and key as empowering. First, I used it to open my heart and let out the pain still locked inside, so I could make room for the love I needed to feel towards myself. To treat myself kindly and gently as the wounded parts healed. I chose to hold the key! And it truly is my key to the Happiness I’ve learned to allow myself to have. The whole idea of giving it away seems odd to me now. I like this “unlocked” feeling, and I can’t wait to find more joyous ways to fill my now-healed heart! So find that key! You know what to do next!
