Letting go gracefully is an art. It’s not easy to “end” a relationship, a career, or anything else you’ve done long enough to call it habitual.
As I work with teams and evaluate my own experience, when something you’ve been committed to is ending as you know it, your feelings compete with your thoughts resulting in complexity. How can you let go and move on before you need to be moved on?
It’s not easy. Your identity and how you’re “known” are at play.
It’s a vulnerable space to navigate and it’s okay to share your emotions about what’s happening.
We can all take a page from Serena Williams on how to evolve with grace.
She’ll always be the GOAT.
