Create Something Better

Since it’s the first Inspiria, why not get a little personal?

In the last year I had one of my most important friendships crack and splinter, with pieces falling out one by one and shattering like glass. Losing a best friend is a slow and painful process. My other friends and family think I should just let it go. While there is no doubt our friendship is too far gone to fix, I can’t help but wonder if we should make something new.

What are you supposed to do when two people have so much to say to each other, but neither has the words? You can go your separate ways (although this isn’t as easy when you see someone constantly) or you can build something new.

Of course, that means saying “we’re not really friends anymore, do you want to start again?” And that’s just awkward, but if someone’s friendship is important to you- does it really matter how awkward it is?

Friendships can be hard. But if you love someone you’ve got to deal with the hard stuff. Maybe the terms of your new friendship will be different. Different is better than cutting yourself on the shards of your broken relationship, or fighting against every fiber to do that thing you know is wrong.

Starting over can become walking away. That’s okay. What’s not okay is hurting yourself- whether that’s hanging on or walking away.

So I say: when nothing is working, when it can’t be fixed and you can’t walk away, then begin again.

I hope you can heal from whatever you’re going through.

Much Love,


P.S.: I would love to see you guys reposting my graphics, just please give credit and link my site! Thank you Lovelies!
