[What did I learn today? Lessons on the Journey to Unconditional Self Love] Ask yourself why has a piece of you abandoned you?

If we set aside any ego investment in the situation, then only love will
flow though us, and it will be expressed in a form that would be
appropriate in that specific situation. ACIM

the only relationship you ever have is the one you are having with
yourself. Other people show up in your life as a demonstration of how you
are being, what you are believing and how you are behaving with yourself,
within yourself. I also know that people come into your life for a reason,
a season or a lifetime.

Lifetime relationships are those bound by blood lines such as parents,
siblings and those with who you bring children to life. So, it is not clear
to me that one person is meant for another person unless their is a reason
for them to be together; in the season they are meant to be together.

As we deepen and become more present in the relationship with ourselves, we
attract people, who can give us more of who we are. At the physical and
intellectual levels of being, it is easy to believe that there is one
person with whom you are meant to spend your time and living. If or when
that person chooses not to be in relationship with you any longer, we can
get stuck in the belief that they were the one and will always be the one.

The issue in that case is why has a piece of you abandoned you? Or, more
appropriately, what part of you have you abandoned? , everything is the way
it needs to be. So, if someone you love leaves your life, even if for a
while, it is exactly what needs to happen. The choice to wait for their
return or, as you say, circling back, is a choice that you will need to
make for yourself, within yourself. I for one neither choose to wait or be
weighted down by waiting
