Letting go is never easy, and it’s even harder when you love what you need to let go, but believe me it is possible.
We tend to give a lot of importance to things and people that aren’t worth it enough. And with this I’m saying that sometimes we hold on tight to small things that seem bigger than they actually are, and the worst of all, it is probably harming us.
In my own experience I have loved people so much when they don’t even deserve it, and I’m talking about friends. Friends that have told me that they would be there for me at any time and that we were going to keep the friendship forever. Words like “forever”, “never”, “true” or “real” are words that makes us feel safe, making us believe in invisible things. We can’t see it, but it feels good, do you get me? This words also makes us expect too much, and watching everything turn into another direction it’s really disappointing, but somehow some of us keep believing that those words have a real meaning, and here is when we struggle with letting go.
The question here is: How can I let go?
- First of all, as humans we need to know our own worth. We know or at least we have an idea of what we deserve, so think about it. Is it worth it? Honestly, just answer that to yourself, stop giving excuses to stick with it, just tell yourself the truth and don’t be scared of admitting the answer you already know.
- Second, how much damage is this causing us? Because ladies and gentleman, we all need pain to learn, but there is a limit and we need to recognize when it’s time to let go.
- Don’t overthink. Easy to say, hard to actually do it. You must know how exhausting is overthinking, this just makes us feel stressed and anxious, it can actually bring consequences to our health. Try to relax and let it be.
- Finally, let the time heal. It’s important for you to know that you won’t feel okay from a day to another but in some months or even weeks, depending of the circunstancies everything will be fine again. Don’t pressure yourself to feel nothing, it’s okay if you miss it, it’s okay to feel a little sad, but keep in mind that you are better without it.
It’s hard, we all know it, but we are strong enough to do it. If I did it you can do it too. This year make sure to let go of everything and everyone who doesn’t deserve a to be a part of your life. There’s too many toxic people out there, you don’t need to have them near to you, and there are a lot of problems and struggles that are making a mess in your head right now.
It’s your time to be free, it’s your time to be happy.
Let yourself get you deserve.
Much Love, –
