Today’s post is inspired by a song I have been listening to nonstop the past few days. Bridges by Eivør is like a mix of folk-y and celtic music; very smooth and calming for the ears. (It’s on repeat as I type this.) Her song talks about the various bridges one has throughout their lifetime and how some are more difficult to pass than others. If you care to listen, I encourage you to do so!
In my life so far, I have burned a couple of bridges because those relationships were causing more hurt than anything else. Some thing that I had to learn the hard way was that most friendships have an expiration date and once it’s obvious to both, the damage has already been done. I’m sure some of you have experienced the same pain that comes with lighting the match and turning your back on the burning bridge.
It seems though, that the light from the flames also clears the pathway ahead for you, and the feeling of liberation is overpowering. You no longer feel tied down by the weight of the harmful relationship and you can go on to spread your wings to be the best version of yourself that you can be. I don’t mean to over exaggerate but during times of transition (especially when saying goodbye to people) emotions can be amplified, for better and worse.
My post today is short but I just wanted to get some thoughts out of my head along with sharing my current favorite song with you all! Hoped you enjoyed it 🙂
