I know most people will read this post and automatically think I’m in a relationship crisis, but this is NOT the case! lol, Jesse and I are great! ANYWAYS, Most of us have heard it before that saying “sometimes friendship breakups hurt more than relationship break-ups”. I guess this is one of those situations I’ve been stuck with holding on and trying again at this friendship or letting go of this friend with all the bad things.
Of course, it’s easy to tell someone to “let go”, but its waaaaay harder to do! I’m thinking as to the reason why we hold on, to begin with…Some of us hold on to people because we’re afraid to be alone. Sometimes we depend on some of these friends, loved ones, or simply just everyday people to make us happy. To fill our lives where we have allowed empty spaces. Maybe sometimes we’re afraid to confront some of these relationships with people. We’re afraid to hurt people or we avoid the hurt ourselves. Not knowing how to break things off with people. We just hope things will get better again, but 9 times out of 10, it doesn’t. Sometimes we just care/love TOO much. Sometimes people make mistakes and people change. We’re human…
BUT what about letting go? What does it do for one? Letting go releases stress. It lifts weights and more weights off your shoulder because let’s admit it. Most of the time letting go was long overdue and we allowed it to pile up. It gives you the opportunity to learn and grow. Sometimes you do so much damage beyond repair, but you learn what you need to work on and what you need/don’t need from these relationships you create with people. To prevent this from happening again. Letting go allows you to close a chapter in your life. This gives you a fresh start to be better. Like I stated, “easier said than done”, but possible, don’t forget that.
We all have a choice to hold on or letting go of people.
