So Done
Written by Ludwig Göransson, Khalid and Alicia Keys

‘Cause I’m so, so done
Got it, my time
Holding me back
I’m living the way that I want

‘Cause I’m so, so done
Fighting myself
Going through hell
I’m living the way that I want (5x)

I lost control of all of my energy
Done so much damage to my heart
I’ve given in, I’ve changed my identity
I didn’t mean to go so far

Oh my God, I wish
I could be, better than this
My God, wish I could be
‘Cause I’m so, so done (so done, so done)
Got it, my time
Holding me back
I’m living the way that I want (I want)
‘Cause I’m so, so done (so done)
Fighting myself
Going through hell
I’m living the way that I want
I’m living the way that I want
I’m living the way that I…

Dear So Done,

When I heard you sigh out this first lyric it was so earnest and relatable. I immediately thought of some client sessions where they may have even said those same words, “I’m so done,” the same way you’re saying it. There is a relaxed, serene, and dare I say, peaceful positivity in the way you are announcing this end. It sounds like the situation was insanity, a bit surreal, and maybe still is. The “was” part was your involvement. The energy and insight you have put into whether or not to move on is apparent from the confidence you exude as you repeat how done you are. You tried. You’re done. My sense is that you may need to keep repeating this phrase a little more to reinforce it for yourself. But also the repetition is celebration and validation. It’s hurt, but it’s also hopeful. You sound free.

There is a lot of energy and fast pace surrounding you, but you don’t have to speed up for it. You can keep the rhythm without going so far as to change your general pace. You can bide your time for a new opportunity to ride off in connection with people and a mission that better suits you.

To be continued…
