Walking back home, I told myself that I was okay and it will all be okay. I did for a month now. Everything slowly has started making sense to me, I have finally let gone of all that hurt me. It was not easy, that I know but I also know that when it all went away … I felt new. Like the darkest nights were over and I could see rays of the sun rising. I could feel the light reach my heart and shine through the little cracks.
There are things we don’t want to happen but have to accept, things we don’t want to know but have to learn, and people we can’t live without but have to let go. Not just for certainty of being a sane person but also for growing as an individual. At the end of the day, you can either focus on what is tearing you apart or what is holding you. Pain can change you, It’s true but not always in a bad way… It makes you wiser. I am thankful to all the closed doors today, the rerouting and roadblocks, I know now if it wasn’t for them … I would be in a wrong place.
I used to love flowers and I would pick them up and put them into a vase. After a few days I would notice they died. That’s the moment I realized, you cannot force a flower to bloom somewhere it doesn’t belong and it is the same with people too.
Sometimes, we hold on to people purely based on how long we have known them. Time can tie people together, but it is not a strong enough reason to hold on to something that’s simply no longer worth holding onto. We grow complacent with people once we’re comfortable with them. But, hanging onto someone for the pure sake of it and because you don’t know anything else isn’t a good enough reason.
I know it does sound cliché, but it is true. People simply grow apart… it’s a matter of accepting that it takes time to let go, rather than holding on to something that just can’t be brought back, was lost a long time ago or perhaps, was never really there at all.Whoever it is if a toxic love, a loveless relationship, an ex you still love , one sided love, or even a friend who doesn’t feel the same anymore. It is not giving up but just leaving after you give your all. People change, feelings change, circumstances change… change is inevitable so the best thing to do is accept and let go. For that is the best you can do for you and them and trust me, it will feel so much lighter … Sometimes its better than holding on. When you let go you create space for better things to enter your life.
