The way to handle the emotion is to replace it with gratitude. Thanks for the experience. Thanks for the lessons. Thanks for everything I learned in that cycle. Thank you for giving me the life I have now. The old cycle is done. The old habits of thought and feeling are no longer needed. They served their purpose. They protected me for years. I appreciate them immensely, but I can move on now. It's time to move on. It's time to fully allow this new cycle in.
