So, I learned a long time ago to beware of people on pedestals, even if I’ve put them there. I think it has to do with ‘trust’. Even if the pedestal isn’t very high, the fact that one is on it brings a set of expectations along that dance around you and keep you in a constant awareness that at any moment, it can all go down.
And it did!
What seems to hurt the most, is the trust, or now, the loss of trust. The relationship will never be the same – it’s sad.
I guess that’s what life is anyway…..a series of “starts”.
Jobs end, relationships end, projects end, and we must start again. The distance between an ending and making the decision to start again can be dangerous. That space can be a vast ‘void’ – a place that lies in wait for one to get drawn into.
It’s like a hidden monster that desires vulnerable and, what I call, ‘in-between’ people. Let’s just call it the ‘in-between monster’!
