Guidance: Be true to yourself
This week has truly been about the need to cut away and leave things that no longer serve me behind. Right now I'm feeling the need to pull away from a coworker who I don't feel is working in our client's best interests. It also makes me wonder if this is about cutting ties with people who were important, but who I've drifted away from.

It's interesting to reflect on this card today because I've been working hard to cut some cords that no longer serve me. I've realized that I need to cut cords with John and quit getting all swirly about what he does or does not do in his life. I've worked hard to let go of being judgmental and to let go of commenting on other people's decisions that don't affect me, but with him I continue to judge. I have to admit that there is a part of me that wants him to fail and have a miserable life because of how he abused me and hurt me. However, all that holding on to that anger does is keep me tied to him. I need to let go of that rope that is keeping me tied down because it truly no longer serves me.
I also need to let go of someone who was so instrumental in my healing, but who no longer has a true role to play in my life. I need to be grateful for the unconditional love he gave me and accept that our paths have diverged.
