Sometimes the universe closes a door for you and at the time, in the pain, the discomfort and the attachment, you question how unfair life is. It’s not until another door opens, sometimes years later, that you realize that door closing was a portal to another opportunity, relationship, a new chapter...
When you experience your first heartbreak, layoff, rejection... it can feel like the universe is conspiring against you. After having experienced all these things countless times now, I’ve finally learned to trust. I’ve been laid off from a dream job only to find myself moving to another country for another opportunity. I’ve been heartbroken only to find myself almost a decade later creating a business around breakups. I’ve been rejected by over a hundred publications only to get a book deal 12 years later, I’ve been told “no thanks” from one partnership only to actualize an even better fit afterwards, I’ve been told by the man I thought was my soul mate that he doesn’t see me in the “relationship” category...
But I trust. Sometimes that door was slammed in my face and sometimes I had to close the door on what I knew wasn’t serving me anymore.
Reflect on the doors that closed in your past that acted as a beautiful plot twist to something better. Remember this the next time you’re suffering because something didn’t work out as you planned. And, have the courage to close the doors you know are no longer serving you and where you want to go.
