For far too long she believed that an abusive relationship is better than no relationship at all. But when she walked away rather than be dishonoured, allowed herself to touch the depths of her aloneness, stayed steadfast in her deepest vulnerability, she caused a miracle to happen.
She discovered with astonishment that not only did the painful separation not kill her, it made her stronger. It created within her a sacred space that will never again allow herself to compromise, or sell herself short.
First, she is embracing herself with love, before she embraces another. Even if trembling, she is ready only for wholesome relationships. Because she is falling in love with herself.
She is breaking the chords to suffering.
