Have you seen the new Netflix Movie “Someone Great”?
It’s a great movie on the pain of a long relationship breakup and how amongst the pain there is hope.
I was inspired by the breakup letter at the end of the movie, it was raw and beautiful.
Here’s the full letter;
Do you think I can have one more kiss?
I’ll find closure on your lips and then I’ll go.
Maybe, also one more breakfast, one more lunch and one more dinner.
I’ll be full and happy and we can part.
But in between meals, maybe we can lie in bed one more time.
One more prolonged moment where time suspends indefinitely as I rest my head on your chest.
My hope, is if we add up the one mores it will equal a lifetime
and I never have to get to the part where I have to let you go.
But that’s not real, is it?
There are no more, one mores.
I met you when everything was new and exiting and the possibilities of the world seemed endless.
And they still are, for you, for me, but not for us.
Somewhere between then and now, here and there, I guess we didn’t just grow apart, we grew up.
When something breaks, and the pieces are big enough, you can fix it.
I guess sometimes things don’t break, they shatter, but when you let the light in, shattered glass will glitter.
And in those moments, when the pieces catch the sun, I’ll remember just how beautiful it was. Just how beautiful it will always be, because it was us, and we are magic, forever.
Life happens and some of the most painful things in life are not physical things but emotional.
Even the most impossible moments there is a glimmer of hope.
As business owners, it’s even more dangerous to be paralyzed by big life events when our businesses rely on us to operate.
Something I’ve learned these past few months is that is it just as important to take care of your mental health as your physical one.
It’s healthy to go to a therapist, counselor, or elder for advice and to talk things out.
Take care of yourself, darling, there’s only one of you.
