The Ten of Swords mean a forcible, violent end. This end can be the end of a relationship, it can mean dismissal or the sudden death of a loved person. Whatever form this end has: it will be an end full of pain, an experience that we go through recieving serious wounds. The only positive thing about this is that sometimes we have to rule something off even if it is extremely painful because else we would suffer even deeper wounds. The painful end the Ten of Swords desribe does not imply that we couldn't heal again after a time of mourning.
