The Queen of Night draws a cloak of darkness over the earth, putting the day to rest. Similarly, we need to retire our failed projects, the relationships that no longer serve us, and old behavior patterns that prevent our progress. We need to detach and "divorce" ourselves from lingering hopes and clinging illusions. With neutrality and maturity, we drop what we have been clutching, and move on. We grow up a notch.
Beware of trying to stay friends after the break-up, or chasing after someone who rejected us. When a sapling breaks, it's a messy fracture with dozens of pieces still clinging together...technically the tree is "broken," yet it's still in one piece! A clean break saves our self-esteem and shortens our recovery. Grief, necessary after a loss, can't start until we get off the merry-go-round of hope and despair that comes with "hanging on."
Say 'goodnight' to what is worn out and lay it to rest. Let go of what no longer works. Prepare for something new...and better.
'Cause even the stars they burn
Some even fall to the earth
We've got a lot to learn
God knows we're worth it
No, I won't give up
