Natalie MacNeil {on ending relationships}

This week, we’re talking about ending relationships. We discuss the ways that social norms and expectations, as well as personal fears often skew our views about how relationships should look and how long they should last. We open up about our own experiences with having to end friendships and romantic relationships or having them end. Our guest, Natalie MacNeil, gets super vulnerable with us, sharing publicly for the first time the story of her decision to end a long-term relationship, the process that led up to it, and the path she's taken since them. With Natalie, we offer our best tips and advice about making the decision to end a relationship, how to go about ending things, and how to make space for new people and relationships to come into being once it's begun to be over.

Top Three Takeaways:

  1.  It's okay to change + grow, and to leave relationships that are no longer aligned with you or that keep you feeling stifled or small. 
  2. Feel into whether a relationship should or shouldn't be continued. Look for physical warning signs {like consistently low energy/mood, lethargy, crying, depression} and seek intuitive signs by taking time to sit in stillness with yourself and feel into whether things can work or not. 
  3. In making your decision, communicate - but be careful: reach out to and seek out advice from people whose vision & goals align with yours; if it's safe, try communicating with the person you’re considering ending the relationship with to come to a more complete understanding around your decision.
