Cliche title, I know.
But, I am learning that there are some things in life that you just have to let go of.
Hopes. Dreams. Friendships. Family. The past.
Pieces of those things continue on, but at some point you just have to accept that some things, some people, just don’t belong in your life any longer. As such, you have to let go.
Yes, some things are harder than others. Yes, some people are harder to let go than others. But what you realize once you have done it is that you are free. Free from the weight of expectations. Free from the glare of failure. Free from the hope in something that isn’t going to happen. Free. Just free. No more guilt. No more angst. Free from worry. No more.
There are going to be tough days ahead. It’s not going to be easy, but if you know it in your heart you need to make it happen.
You don’t have to explain. You don’t have to rationalize. You don’t owe anyone anything.
Except you. You owe it to yourself.
Just let it go.
