“You let go of someone not because you no longer care, not because you no longer need and want them in your life, but because you understand that they will be happier someplace else. You will be happy someplace else.”~ Luminita D. Saviuc
There comes a time when you need to go within and be honest with yourself about what and who truly matters in your life, and you might have to make some difficult decisions but every single one of them will be for your own good.
It might be painful to realize that certain people are in your life just for a season, or just for a certain reason, and when they’re no longer a part of your life. It is not because you’ve done something wrong, because you’re not worthy of being in their lives, it’s just that they’ve served their purpose and it is time for them to move on. It is time for you to move on too.
When you come to terms with the fact that some people decide to walk out and no longer be a part of your life, and that has nothing to do with you, that’s when you will be more at peace. Sure, it can be painful because it can be a partner or a friend with whom you’ve shared a lot of time, energy, and emotions, and their absence could leave a hole in your heart that feels impossible to fill.
But is that really the case?
When to Let Go Is The Best Thing You Can Do for Yourself
Nobody’s saying you can’t feel hurt, alone, confused as to why someone would choose to walk away, and once you’ve gone through it all, once you’ve cried, gotten angry and gone through all the ups and downs of your experience, I hope you will come to realize that nothing ever happens randomly.
You learn to let go of certain people and take from them only the best, the lessons, the wisdom, because just as Dr. Joe Dispenza says it: “A memory without the emotional charge is called wisdom.”, and that’s all you’ll ever be left with.
When you let go of the people who no longer want to be in your life, when you let go of situations that are out of your control, you are FREE. You no longer have to wonder what you should or could have done differently, because you are FREE. You are no longer a slave to the endless cycles of overthinking, criticising yourself and blaming yourself for what went wrong.
When you let go of what and who no longer brings you peace, joy, and balance in your life, you take back your power, the energy you’ve given away, and you become a stronger, more independent, and even more fulfilled being.
It’s wonderful to have friends, a partner, someone to share your time, and life experiences with, but if these are not the right people for you, if they only take, and take and take your time, energy and affection, and just that, what’s the point?
So, let go!
You don’t have to prove your worth to anyone, because you are more than enough and if there are people who can’t see it, then that says more about them, than it says about yourself. If they no longer want to be a part of your life, bless them, and let them be on their way.
“Be a Light unto this world; a source of wisdom and inspiration. Use your presence to bring joy to those around you. And let your life be proof that good people do exist. ” ~ Luminita D. Saviuc
You don’t have to make yourself small and dim your light for anyone, ever. It is yours for a reason, and that’s all there is to it.
So, let go!
Set yourself free and set them free as well. It doesn’t mean you stopped caring about them if you do so. It just means you’ve gotten to realize that loving yourself, honoring yourself and your needs first has become your priority. It just means you’ve opened your eyes and realized that sometimes, the best thing you can do for yourself is to let go.
So, let go!
I personally have been going through a more challenging period in my life and I’ve realized that I have to let go of someone who I’ve held very close to my heart. She is someone I shared a lot of wonderful moments, a beautiful Soul, a great listener and someone I could laugh with so much and just be silly. Someone I have considered a friend but as we’re going into different phases of our lives, and because life happened, everything points to having to let go of what we had.
I choose to look back at it all with gratitude and joy, and say Thank You for having had her in my life, but we are both moving on I guess, and that’s okay. I’ve made my peace with it. And even though I’m sure there will be times when I’ll miss our time spent together, I need to let go.
