What To Do When Your Life Falls Apart!

When your life as you know it falls apart, it is a great blessing.

Give thanks.

In that moment realize that your life is actually falling together even though you might not see it.

If your life falls apart then you are ready for something bigger.

It falls apart because it was too small for who you are becoming.

It falls apart because there is something more that is seeking to express itself in and as your life.

It falls apart because what you were living is no longer in alignment with who you are.

It falls apart because life is letting you know that perhaps you have gotten too comfortable where you’re at and need to grow to the next level.

Life is change. Life is growth. Life is a cycle of Creation-Life-Destruction. Every birth is another form of death. And every death is another form of birth.

Often when things fall apart we become afraid, we panic, we resist and fight life. We hold on to what we know, even though it no longer works or serves us.

This only keeps you stuck.

Holding on to the old will not bring what is new. Resisting what is new will not transform or change what is old.

When life falls apart you can resist or fight, which ultimately only leads to suffering and struggle.

So, what do you do when your life as you know it falls apart?

Simply, LET GO!

Perhaps it’s a relationship, job, or a house.

Let Go! And Trust.

Trust that what no longer remains in your life is no longer meant to be there. And that the Uni-verse is just making room for what is more in alignment with your highest good.

When things fall apart, the Uni-verse is trying to make space for something greater.

When life as you know it stops working and falls apart this is the moment to let go of your ego, as it can only take you so far. This is the moment to let go of your ego’s attachment of how your life should be, and surrender.

In every crisis is an opportunity to let go of what is inauthentic and live with more integrity.

In every breakdown is the blessing of a breakthrough.

In every challenging situation is the gift to help your soul evolve and become who you were really meant to be.

So if your life as you know it is falling apart give thanks and…

LET GO!

Love.Now

    This is so true. At the time I didn’t see it that way but now looking back I see what blessings they were.

    While you were talking about things in our life falling apart, I got a picture of a snake shedding its skin or molting. It never occurred to me that things could molt or be cast off from my life to be replaced with growth or new things.

    • The Daily Love

      We’re so glad it’s occurring to you now :) -Team TDL

  • DEE

    I wish that I can get this deep down in my spirit because when life throws baseballs or rocks at me I just can’t seem to let go and trust!

      We’re sure you’re doing your best, Dee! Have patience that you will get there :) -Team TDL

    Okay, as true as all of this is, and I think it is, I think it would be helpful to recognize in the beginning of your article that for some out there “their life falling apart” could be the result of the loss of a spouse or child, etc. In these cases they might see your headline and think that you might be writing something that will help them through their grief. But the truth is, saying things like, your life falling apart is a “blessing” or “you are ready for something bigger”could cause more pain in a time when they need comfort.

      i agree. this is easier said than done. sometimes bad things happen and its NOT a blessing. its a challenge to survive. and that should be celebrated but i don’t think its so easy to just say everything is a blessing.

  • Rachel Lynn

    This is an amazing article. In less than a year, I incurred three huge (and unwanted) losses in my life. With the exception of loosing my father, I finally realized how the end of a horrible marriage and the loss of two jobs opened my life up to growth and happiness. I’m not the person I was two years ago, and I never want to be. My life remains very much a daily challenge, but I am much more self aware and proud of who I am and who I have become. If it weren’t for such painful and devastating (at the time) experiences, I would never have come so far. I know that I’m on a path to bigger and greater things!

  • bluedress

    I want to like this but I just can’t. How do you let go when the crisis your facing is making you HOLD ON? My husband had an affair, abandoned his family – physically, emotionally and financially. I have to get 2nd & 3rd job as contracts to make up for his income. Yes… I am supposed to let go of the pain? When anger consumes me? When the injustice I feel burns through me? I try my best to not say bad things about him to my small daughters… but letting go is too hard. I’d say the anger I feel is what is keeping me fighting to hold on & survive.

      Bluedress,
      I was in a very similar situation that began several years ago and I want you to know that you can handle what has been put before you. I know firsthand how enormously hard it is dealing with the changes and the effects on you and your children and then working 2 & 3 jobs to barely support yourself and kids plus having to take care of everything but please believe that you can handle this and you will be okay. Where you are at right now is very hard and as I look back, one thing I wish I would have known to do is accept what was and not be angry that my life wasn’t the way I thought it should be or had planned for it to be. I wasted so much energy and time being in a place of resentment and blame instead of just accepting what my ex-husband had done, moving forward and having the perspective that losing everything and having to start all over was going to bring out the greatness in me. It was through the challenges, the hurt, the frustration that I was inspired to search for a better way to live my life. Feel those things then let them lead you to the blessings that await you and your family.

    This is a beautifully written article, Kute. I know firsthand how true your message is. Thank you!

  • Julie

    Most amazing article ever. Really. I’ll read it everyday – more than once. It is THAT profound.

  • Kevin Wong

    After reading through the comments I feel that my obstacles are nothing, and after watching the video I’m feeling much better now, thank you, life.

  • constance

    Happened on this site by accident. My husband died, lost our home, lost my health insurance[I have lung disease]and Im looking for a neat way to kill myself. At the time I don’t feel any more change will not be good.At 67 and sick I am not looking forward to being a street person. I feel its my next step of my life falling apart. This sounds good and I may try it, what the hell. Cant stand to lose any more.

  • Robin Leonard

    I’m frightened…..my marriage is ending, losing our house, you know these sort of things. Funny thing is I’ve known it needs to come to an end for a long time. That is the resistance, holding on when you know you shouldn’t, How it causes more suffering and it has. It’s time to really let go. Wish me well. I’m ready for the universe to guide me where I should be.
