Let go, leave, move on from any and all relationships you’re in, that if, the only time you smile, is when you’re recalling when he/she/we/us “used to”.
Many of us, tend to carry around the weight of what once was. We hold on to the past and carry it with us hoping and praying that things will go back to normal. Return to what it used to be. People change, and relationships grow apart and that’s okay; it’s part of life. If you’re not growing together or at least acknowledging your differences and actively trying to be in each other’s lives then it’s time to move on. If you’re stuck in the “I wish things were the same” phase, here’s what I need you to do:
- Breathe, deeply.
- Realize that people grow in different directions. (the people in our lives are like parts of a tree; leaves, branches, and roots. Those leaves (people) that supported you, challenged you were there for a season; they served their purpose).
- Do remember the amazing memories and forgive the negative ones
- Wish them luck; bitterness and anger will only hinder you
So, stop holding on to what once was..it won’t bring it back. Now, if you believe that relationship, friendship or situationship is worth it, then fight for it…but remember it has to be a dual fight.
Let Go. Balance is key.
