Our souls are born to expand and grow. It is our purpose in life to try new things, meet new people, have many relationships, and endlessly explore life as the fun journey it is meant to be. Nothing in nature stays the same, and we as humans constantly shift as well. Just like trees lose leaves, we too must learn to let go and shed what no longer works for us, so we can grow into better people, and toward bigger opportunities. Often this does mean saying good bye to soulmates, or distancing yourself from friends, or heading in a new direction that may leave you temporarily lonely. It is in stepping through what is comfortable you allow yourself freedom to confront fear, and become more secure in your own true self.
