I’m guilty of giving people more chances than they deserve but when I’m done, I’m done.
When you hate something, you chain yourself to it.
Letting go looks different for everyone, I think. Sometimes it’s as simple as waking up one day and deciding not to let your past rule you. Other times it’s a process; slow moving and painful, like trudging through a forest of thorny vines in hopes that you’ll find freedom on the other side.
To get over the past, you first have to accept that the past is over. No matter how many times you revisit it, analyze it, regret it, or sweat it…it’s over. It can hurt you no more.
Why are you sad?” Baby asked.
“Because some day you’ll fly higher than high, and the blue will fill your eyes, and maybe you’ll forget to come down,” said Wishmoley.
Baby snuggled next to him. “I’ll never forget,” she said.
A broken heart is probably tougher the second time around but just remember those pieces will come together again. The hurt and pain will fade. You will then remember how strong you are. You will thank a broken heart someday, remember that.
No matter how much you stress or obsess about the past or future, you can’t change either one. In the present is where your power lies.
We can’t be afraid of change. You may feel very secure in the pond that you are in, but if you never venture out of it, you will never know that there is such a thing as an ocean, a sea. Holding onto something that is good for you now, may be the very reason why you don’t have something better.
The actuality that the heart does not want to feel, doesn’t negate the certitude that it once felt and will still feel.
We could do ourselves a tremendous favor by letting go of the people who poison our spirit.
