I read a beautiful verse today which follows on from my recent thoughts about being afraid to let go.
“Not everything is supposed to become something beautiful and long lasting. Sometimes people come into your life to show you what is right and what is wrong, to show you who you can be, to teach you to love yourself, to make you feel better for a little while or to just be the one to walk with at night and spill your life to. Not everyone is going to stay forever and we still have to keep on going and thank them for what they’ve given us.”
Does this resonate with you? Are you holding on to someone who really needs to be allowed to move on? Are you the one staying when you need to go? I think I fit both categories at times but both are hard, put us in a state of fear and uncertainty even when we know it’s right and admitting this in itself is like listening to someone else speak. It can’t be me admitting I need to let go or let someone go? It can’t be me wishing them thanks and farewell all at the same time? It can’t be. That would mean I’m moving forward, possibly alone, possibly it’s forever.
How hard is it trust what you cannot see; to believe this is right when you don’t know what is ahead? How difficult are the words “it’s time”? How hard to let go?
Have faith; even when you don’t want to admit change must happen, people must move on and times together are not infinite. Deep down you will know what is to be. Deep down you will just know. Be brave to see it through.
Always live in the moment, be present in the now and enjoy the people in your life right this minute. Don’t worry if tomorrow they are gone or you have to go. Love them today. Love yourself as you are right this second. Be in your life and those you share it with every second. Don’t wander forward and don’t wander back. Now is the only place to be but when you know things have to change be brave and let go.
