What is the definition of wealth? I have found that living a simple and peaceful life brings a sense of ease. Being grateful for the life progress I have made. The other day talking to someone that I was close with for many years and loved during the time we shared. When speaking to this individual I apologized for my hurts and wrong doings.  That they were not meant to intentionally hurt. At that time both our level of emotional maturity was not fully developed.

Looking back and telling this person we would have never made each other happy long term. For myself realizing and actually grateful for the moments we shared and the struggles we went through to let go. Because, it took me on a journey of loving who I truly am. As, I wouldn't be where I am at today without that relationship. Without the pain. But, I also know I wouldn't be the woman I am today or have this life I have created if I had stayed.

Letting go of relationships is challenging and painful. A grieving process and healing. Once we have worked through the process we can ultimately find happiness within ourselves. A feeling of not needing anything. But, a feeling of loving, creating and gratefulness for all that has been created on an individual level. Knowing all the support you need is people telling you to go create! Go do what you love! We believe in you! And when you go off to create, we will know you are focused and let you be. And we know when you are done you will come right back to us as the true Danielle we love. True Support is not needing anything from an individual and understanding their process. Don't be afraid to let people go. So, they can explore their process.
