Life re-entry can be a lonely experience.

Transformation into the person you want to be will require a different kind of loss.

Loss of relationships.

Loss of connections you used to have.

Loss of many bridges that connected you to the life you left behind.

It will almost feel like you are speaking in an another language.

And that is when you will feel it.

The loneliness of life re-entry.



Yet necessary for your transformation to occur.

When we go through a devastating loss, a terrible life

interruption… a broken heart we will find ourselves all alone.

Evolution does not take place when our hearts break,

but when our hearts mend.

We get confused as to why we lose our best relationships during that time.

Why we have no one by our side during our moments of change.

Please remember, you are on a different journey now.

One that was unexpected and not planned.

The people who were with you in the past will find it hard to understand your new behavior.

They will feel like they are losing you.

They will say that you have changed.

They will be angry that you have no time for them.

But remember it is not time that you do not have.

But commonalities.

Same life experiences are no longer your connection points.

So stop trying to connect when you are met with resistance.

Let it be.

Go with the flow of your transformation.

Go with your truth about your self.

You have other things to think about during that time.

During that lonely evolutionary time in your life, you must acquire new skills, find a new career.

A new job.

A new love.

Create a new relationship with yourself.

No time for guilt.

No time for shame.

Just time to for breathing life again.

Life Re-Entry is not just an activation process but a journey into the new self that is left all alone to evolve and find its new tribe.

Some people will come along.

Others will not.

Be ok with that.

It is part of your re-entry.


With evolution,
