Moving on

A couple of days ago, I separated from my partner of two and a half years. It wasn’t hard, it was quite mutual, even though we live with each other and two other roommates. I thank the permacultural perspective for this successful break up. Analyzing the relationship in the first place, I found that the energy (initiative to understand,participate, and change) wasn’t happening in an equitable manner. It left a cloud of disappointment and frustration over our heads.
The most difficult part of the break-up was conjuring up the words and the confidence to share my feelings. Because I found my partner more sensitive, I simply directed him into the direction of a break. While we were on break, we then found it simpler to go our separate ways.
For us, sustaining a friendship is the next best thing. The energy that we spend can now be used on things that we find will take us into our desired directions. When it comes to relationships it is important to understand that we both have needs. If those needs aren’t met up then something has to change.
