In this life we are often shown the “true color” of other individuals. This enlightening is put here to protect us and guide us along our journey. If you hold onto that which is not for you anymore you just might be hindering your progress. Although difficult as it may be it is best to let others go in order to grow.
I myself had to do this a few years back when I was going through one of the most tumultuous times in my life. I had just recovered from a heart attack and had undergone a hysterectomy for cancer and my whole world had fallen apart. The individuals who I thought would be there for me wound up being my biggest enemies. When I was down and weak they kicked me. I don’t think any of them expected me to make it out alive and to rebuild. However I did make it out alive and I did rebuild with my husband and our two children. I used that fuel which they had poured on me to fuel my own reserve tank, which in turn gave me the energy I needed to go on. I became stronger and wiser, two things I wish I had embodied way before that experience.
You see not everybody will want what’s best for you and even though it hurts to realize this fact it is true. No one who isn’t loyal first to their own morals and values can be trusted with the ability to be loyal to you and yours. Many of the population in this day in age are unhappy with themselves and therefore they wish unhappiness on others.
The key is to break free from these type of individuals not because they are bad people, as most may be nice people, they just aren’t a good fit for you and your life. You will never please them and they will never see eye to eye with you. It’s best to nip these relationships in the bud before things get to heated or you become overwhelmingly stressed from the sheer presence of them.
Believe me when I say I know all too well how difficult this is to do. I’ve been there on the letting go end of it and yes you wish you could make the relationship work, but sometimes letting go brings way more joy back into your life than hanging on ever could.
Til next time….
