About Letting Go

let someone/something go 
1. allow someone/something to escape or go free
2. relinquish one's grip on someone/something

Thought I'd let myself share a little bit about something that has happened to me not too long ago. I have no intention to 'brag' about my personal matter to the world, but to me this is just a simple self reminder on how sometimes aching is just one of God's way to teach us valuable things in life.

I am a believer that everyone who came into our life where meant for some reasoning, and maybe most of the time is to let us earn and 'exchanging' things to each other, like exchanging love, or either life lessons. Well, can't deny that there are cases where people do exchange hatred too. But one thing that is also certain, though people came, apparently just like what we've been told all the time, they don't always stay.

It's not as easy as seeing the rain falls, instead it may hurt so much when those that you thought would always be there for you, who were always there, just aren't anymore. But if you come and think about it closely, is there just anything you can do about it?

Just like you, other people have the rights to choose the life they wanted to live. When they chose to leave and leaving made them happy, then please, do let them go. If they really matter to you, you'll know that there is nothing you wanted to see them for instead of being happy, even when their happiness does not include you inside.

It's okay to cry, really. Sometimes crying is nothing but a proof that you're alive and you still have feelings, which is good for you. Find somewhere safe where no one can see you and cry as much as you can, because it's not everyday you got to see yourself like this, so a cheat day won't harm nobody. After you had your good cry, tell yourself that it'd get better in time, all you need is just some time to recover and just like every other wound, they heal themselves, if you just give them enough time. Besides, you also the special privilege to 'enjoy' those sad songs the way it didn't usually do because only at these times those songs feel like singing for you.

When you think you're ready to leave, there's one thing you need to make sure of. Check your bag, you will want to make sure you don't carry the excess of those 'junk' with you. Because when you decided that you wanted to move on with your life, you need to be sure that you don't bring any sadness, regrets, self pity or other negativity (and of course, those dirty tissues you used to wipe your tears and snots) with you since you just won't be needing them anymore.

You are not letting go of the memories, you're just letting the people who were in it to set free and reach for their own version of happiness. When you walk to the future, you'll realize that it's not only those people that you managed to let go, but you've also set yourself free from the past that have been sitting on the shelves, collecting dusts for too long. After that you'll know that you're ready for the future He has prepared for you, but all along was waiting for you to be ready to pursue. It might just have been time for you, my dear.
