The art of life is letting go.
There comes a time in your life, where you’re forced to let go of a soul, a memory or a long history, with a person you never imagined your life without. A time that is inevitable no matter how hard you try to avoid it, run from it, fight it. I am here to tell you, that it is ok. This part of your life is ok. Accept it, embrace it.
Letting go is not a sign of weakness, or the showing of a lessened love. it is an action taken to prevent further despair, to allow room for growth and new found happiness. The process is daunting, it attacks your heart and your mind, damages your ability to feel and see clearly. Letting go means accepting the past for what it has been, and what the future may never be, accepting defeat against your efforts and making space for change (something a lot of us struggle to manage). We struggle to let go because admitting why, shines a light on where things went wrong. it invites thoughts about how you could’ve been different, if you could’ve prevented it, could have been better? Failure is hardwired in us as humans to feel negative – this doesn’t have to be the case.
We struggle because up until the point of letting go, we had never envisaged a life that doesn’t involve the being that comes to mind whilst reading this post. We struggle because when somebody touches you in a way that changes your life, enlightens your very day and introduces you to a happiness never before experienced, you’re forced to allow a part of yourself to leave with them – a part of yourself you’ve grown fond of. Somebody that without the creator, because merely an idea. It takes courage to separate from not only the person you love, but the part of yourself that they helped you discover and fall in love with. A part of you, that without them, doesn’t exist.
We need to recalculate our minds to function without them. We did it before them, we can do it after them. Life is a series of battles, some sent to defeat us, some sent to test us beyond belief… but all sent to better us, strengthen us and build us into the people we have to potential to be. You just have to believe it. Manifest your wellness and don’t let anybody take power over your happiness.
