We hold on to things because we don’t know anything better, or don’t believe there could be anything better than what we have. Sometimes we feel that we are deserving of a thing or person we long for. Only time shows us what we are deserving of and what we can have. Have the courage to let go of something that isn’t providing you with growth or not allowing you to move ahead. Letting go is a practice one has to overcome many times throughout the different stages in life. We let go of our anger, people and fantasies.
The hardest thing about letting go of people, whether it’s a husband, boyfriend or close friend, is that they are the person YOU allowed in. They were the ones that you chose to share your secrets and deepest thoughts with. You grow from learning what is meant for you and what is not. You gain perspective on what you truly want and who you are as a person.
Patience is a virtue – it will take time to let go and it will take even more time to find what it is that makes you the best you. I believe that we influence the situations around us. If we believe that there is good waiting for us around the bend in the road, there will be.
