Has there ever been a person in your life where you wanted to hold on to them? You may have wanted to hold on to them to try hold on them or even try to bring them along with you on your journey, however that person would drift further apart from you. Then you start to think of the things that you may have been doing wrong and after some reflection you realize certain things. Some of those things are that you have been giving your energy and time to that person, only to realize it has fell on deaf ears. The most crucial thing you realize is that you realize you pour so much into that other person, that sometimes you have lost yourself. That’s when you must learn to let people go.
2018 has truly been the year where I have learned that I must learn to let people go and begin to live my life. This year has been filled with several people that in the past I had put my life on hold hoping that some people would go to the next level with me. However, that never happened. Usually they would use me and stop talking to me. I had to meditate on this issue and came up with this simple sentence “Let go and live”. These four words are what I am going into 2019 with. I am letting go of the people who do not value me, and I am living it up with people who do. If, I live each day to fullest I am happy. As long as, I am surrounded by people who match my energy and want to live life to the fullest, then I consider that to be a great time. Letting go can truly be hard. It takes time and patience, but the person you grow to be from letting is the person you often dream about. Continue to let go, live and smile.
