So this is how it ends, right? You walking away like I meant nothing, like it won't hurt me. Just throwing away the friendship that we've established over the years...
No, not that. This is me killing that faint spark of hope that blossoms into flame every single time we talk. This is me walking away from the pretention that it doesn't hurt seeing you look at him with so much love whilst knowing that you will never look at me the same way. This is me embracing the fact that I could never have your love no matter how much I love you. This is me welcoming tomorrow with renewed energy that maybe, just maybe, the girl who would love me the way I would love her is just around the corner, waiting for me to dump this unrequited love in exchange of being loved back. This is me leaving you not because you can't love me back but because it's about time to love myself more. It would hurt you if I leave, I know. But if I stay, this love would eventually consume and kill me. You are just losing a friend, one that you can still find along the way. While me? I'm going to lose a lifeline if I stay.
SO a fellow blogger messaged me asking for a little advice on a spell they were crafting…and this is what I came up with. After thinking about it, I added onto what I told them.
The purpose is to essentially sever ties with someone you had a negative relationship with, but still want to wish them the best. It’s based off my earlier post, “Remember, it’s okay to burn bridges and still be happy for the people you left on the other side.”
You Will Need:
-Two long-ish stemmed flowers. Can be different, can be the same, your discretion. These represent both of you blooming and having wonderful lives.
-Something to write on them (or otherwise personalize them)
-A car and a windy day(windy day optional I guess?)
What to Do:
-Write the name of the person(s) on one flower, and yours on the other.
-Tie the two stems together if possible. If they’re too stiff, wrap them together with a ribbon.
-Drive far away from your home, the farther the better. Once at your destinaton, get ready to drive home. Pluck the flower with the name of the person you want to cut ties with from the stem. Focus all your emotion and intent and energy into it.
-Drive back. Along the way, let the flower go out of the window (ergo windy day and car–inertia is needed here) and envision the wind diverting their path far, far away from yours.
-Once home, pluck your own flower off the stem and bury it in your yard, solidifying the spell.
