Graceful Exits

by Trudy on July 1, 2011

Overly emphasized around here of late, exits are an important part of relationships too.

At PROVOKE we have had some sad days recently. A dear client lost a grandmother, the matriarch that kept the family together. A grounding friend/associate left the city for an exciting new life. And the painful passing of a beloved dog and companion.

All of this got me to thinking about graceful exits.

Exits are a natural part of relationships. An article I read recently pointed out a stat that lifelong connections are actually the rarity.

So I guess the real question is about how we choose to make our exits in life. Whether it is with a partner, friend, client, supplier, whomever.

I have always seen it is about grace, compassion and generosity. Some see it as drama, others choose a head in the sand method. There are many more I am sure.

What I would like to leave you with is, exits are an important, if uncomfortable part of a relationship. Be as purposeful in the conclusion of relationships as you are within them. And let it be a true reflection of you.
