Strange emphasis on 10 of Swords and Ace of Cups–not sure what to make of it

Over the course of the night, I have had the 10 of Swords and Ace of Cups show up together multiple times in a very obvious way. This afternoon, as I was moving the deck around, the Ace of Cups fell out. I put it back, and when I first shuffled the deck in the night, the Ace of Cups fell out again, and when I went to put it back in the deck, the card that I opened the middle of the deck to was the `10 of Swords. I put the Ace elsewhere (away from the 10) and shuffled a considerable amount more. When I went to cut the cards for one last shuffle, the cards on top of either half of the deck were–you guessed it–the 10 of Swords and Ace of Cups, even though I deliberately put them away from each other. I once again made sure I put them far from each other, and shuffled some more. Finally, after I did the reading I meant to do for myself, I decided to go through the deck and find the 10 of Swords. Guess what was the card right behind it? Despite the extensive shuffling, the Ace of Cups and 10 of Swords keep showing up together.

I'm honestly not quite sure what to make of this. I've been carrying some considerable anxiety re: my love life as of late (TLDR: swore off any romantic relationships two years back after my last one did a number on me, went on a casual date last week, and unlike other casual dates, I can't seem to get this one off my mind at all, and it's driving me crazy with worry because I'm not sure why I'm thinking about it so much), so I would assume this is giving a related message?

The only thing I can think of (especially with the 10 of Swords almost always coming before the Ace of Cups) is that I need to let go of the baggage of my last relationship. I'm still carrying that weight and pain around, and its time to shed that. Yes, it hurt deeply, but every ending is a new beginning. Where the 10 of Swords shows the difficult ending, the Ace of Cups represents the new beginning. There is something new waiting for me, but I need to let myself reach for it first. If I can let go and open myself up, I'll find that there are a lot of possibilities waiting for me, and perhaps even in the context of a new person, or a new type of interaction with an existing person.

Does anyone else have any interpretations or suggestions? I'm quite new to tarot, and this is throwing me for a loop.
