Letting Go

There are people who can walk away from you. And when people walk away from you, let them walk. Our destiny is never tied to anybody that left. Letting go doesn’t mean giving up, but rather accepting that there are things that cannot be. Some people think it’s holding on that makes someone strong. Well, sometimes it’s letting go.

Sometimes, you have to let go to see if there was anything worth holding on to. Let them go, it doesn’t mean that they are bad persons. It only means that their part in the story of your life is over. You’ve got to know when their part is over so that you won’t keep trying to raise the dead. You’ve got to know when it’s dead. Then, move on.

If you are holding on to something that is not yours and would never be yours, let it go. Just like in love, let go of someone you love. If they return, they were always yours. If they don’t, they never were. When letting go of something, all you need is understanding. Understanding that while good things never last, some don’t even start.

Maybe some people are not meant to be in our lives forever. Maybe some are just passing through. It is just like they come through our lives to bring us something. Perhaps a gift, a blessing or a lesson we need to learn. That’s why they’re here, because you’ll have that gift forever.

How lucky I am to have known someone who was so hard to say goodbye to. I’ve learned that goodbyes will always hurt, pictures can never replace being there, memories forget the hard times, words can never replace feelings and heroes often go unsung. There is a time for departure even when there is no certain place to go. Always remember that there are things that we never want to let go of, people we never want to left behind. Keep in mind, that letting go is not the end of the world. It’s the beginning of a new life.

    there are people/ things worth holding on to and worth fighting for. and there are those that aren’t. and i guess the right time to let go is if you can not find enough reasons to hold on.

    It’s because I just made a decision to let someone go from my life. Just let him go. Accepting that we aren’t meant to be. It’s hard at the beginning. But, in the end, it helped me a lot to bear the pain.

    Thanks for this inspiring post. I guess we can be friend, jorty?
