When someone ceases to be committed to a relationship,
a shift takes place. Energy is withdrawn
from one direction and placed in a new direction.
You can argue about whether it is right or wrong
that someone's commitment changes,
but it won't do you any good.
You cannot prevent other people
from going forward in their growth,
even if you don't agree with their decisions.
If you look deeply enough, you will see
that every apparent "loss" you experience
brings an unexpected gain.
When one person leaves a relationship
that is not growing into deeper intimacy,
the other person is set free too.
