A fourth adolescence?

May 18, 2011

There are down sides to the end of a relationship - grief, loss, pain, regrets.

One up side is, in some way, entering another adolescence. Adolescence, that time when everything seems possible - including maybe finding a forever love - a time of reaching out or not, of being afraid or not, of saying no or not.

I don't have much to say about adolescence, except maybe that each time is different.

For me, the first time around (true adolescence, in terms of actual age) so much shyness and so many hopes. So like a seed, full and yet locked in, in many ways.

The second time - the scariest. I felt so old, though hardly over 30.

The third time - the most fun. Not easy, and sometimes hard to stay true to myself - but much more fun than the first time, or the second time, around.

This time - in some ways it's the hardest. I'm coming to it with the sense of much grief and loss. I think, on the other side, that I'm stronger within myself than I've ever been, and especially that I've cleared more of the inner blocks than ever before. So it feels to me that I'm more likely than ever before to come to something truly right for me, as I feel most right within myself.

I know what the stats say - that each consecutive relationship is less likely to last than the one before. So a second marriage is less likely to last than a first. Maybe we just learn to give up more quickly.

My own sense, for myself, is that I'm a bit on a quest, like one of those old-fashioned knights - only the challenges are much less external obstacles than internal ones.

Responses and your own experiences very welcome.

A second chance at life,
a second chance at love.
It's time to, once more, try try again,to have that second chance at life, second chance at love. Blog journals or you might call them diary blogs with lots of thoughts on life and love, and loving again.



Second chance at love,
second chance at life.
We all need - or most of us, anyway - second chances, more chances. This is a bit of my exploration of try try try again, and also trying to get further than ever before.
Elsa's blog journals, diary blogs and her thoughts on life.
