As difficult as it is sometimes to say goodbye to people and things, it is also imperative to know that with each goodbye and each door closed, there is a possibility for a new beginning. A better beginning.

When you are brave enough to let go of people that are no longer serving any purpose in your life and accept the ending in a healthy manner, you are giving yourself an opportunity to heal properly and promptly. And when you do that, you will see that with that door closed, another one has opened.

Here are some things you will realize when one door closes that will make it easier for you to keep on living with your head held high.

2. Sometimes, difficult partings are blessings in disguise. You just have to wait for them to reveal themselves.
