Letting Go Isn’t As Simple As Moving On!!
Letting go is losing the hope that one day you will get it right or get back together.
Letting go is stopping yourself the moment your mind begins to wander and think what if?
It is trying so hard to forget about the past and the once imaginable false future.
Letting go is deleting that text you want to send so badly because you know it is better not to.
Letting go is forgiving someone for hurting you, misleading you and not being able to love you back.
It is understanding that some things just aren’t meant to be and there is a sad peace in that.
Letting go is something you have to do every single day, a deliberate choice you have to make and that one step towards healing.
Letting go is forgiving yourself for the pain you have caused in the time you have held on longer than you should have.
It is forgiving yourself for the time you wasted knowing even so you wouldn’t take it back.
Letting go is that acceptance that sometimes people aren’t meant for our future even if it is something we imagined so clear would one day be a reality.
Letting go is walking away loving someone for everything he is and everything he couldn’t be.
It is waking up and reaching for your phone knowing you won’t see his name there.
It is the smile despite the tears because you wouldn’t trade the good stuff for anything.
It is crossing paths with him and it is killing you to do so because the truth is you still love him but you painfully accept that you aren’t a part of his story anymore.
Letting go is holding onto faith that what you deserve is right around the corner even though you can’t imagine anyone else.
Letting go is a process.
It won’t just happen overnight.
It is that pain in your chest that doesn’t just go away and the tears you cry longer than you would like.
Because letting go and moving on isn’t the hardest thing in the world, the hardest thing is to keep moving on.
Most of the time we don’t want to let go out of fear of that realisation that is was only us holding on this whole time.
