One of the hardest pills to swallow is letting things be. Let people go. Do not fight for closure, answers, or explanations. What flows flows and what crashes crashes.
One day we will all be a memory to some people. I hope we fight to be good memories. Someone once told me that you do not know what we have until you lose it. Truth be told, all along you knew what you had, just thought you’d never lose it.
There are three people one must never forget in their life. Those who helped them during their difficult times, those who left, and most importantly, those who put you there.
Sooner or later, someone will hurt you. It’s all upon you to choose which is better, the pain or the person. Letting go has never been easy.
Let it be love, guilt, anger, loss, or anything else. Letting go comes with change and change is inevitable. Change has never been easy. In the same way, we fight to hold on, that’s the same way we should fight to let go.
You do not owe it to anyone to stay as the same person you have been for years. Not friends, not family; you’re 100% free to start the change you think you need in life.
At the same time, it’s about time we all realized that no matter how good you are to people, it has never been a guarantee that they will be the same to you. Not everyone has a heart like yours.
I do not know which is harder, waiting for something you know might never happen or giving it up when you know it’s everything you’ve ever wanted.
When you think about it, just because people choose to let go, it doesn’t mean they wanted to in the first place. Many are the times we never want to leave a situation in the hope that the sands will settle and everything will be fine.
However, when the other party fails to notice the efforts we contribute, we get ready to leave. We realize that we ain’t what we want to feel anymore.
At a certain point in life, everyone is afraid of losing people, until they realize they were never down for you anyway. No matter how deep your loyalty to them ran, they could never be careless.
Most of these people just step back and watch people lose them. That’s growth.
