Letting Go

ever heard the saying “you must leave the past in the past or sacrifice your future?” well that saying is definitely true. I did not realize the potential of those words until yesterday. about six months ago I was your typical young lady. my life consisted of happiness, love, and adventure. I lived everyday with purpose and I moved to the beat of my own drum. Suddenly my life took a drastic change for the worse. I let my emotions get the best of me. I allowed insecurity to pick away at me. When self doubt came knocking I invited it in for tea. I was and still am a wreck. It took me a while to realize exactly why all of these emotions were flowing throughout me. I knew something was different. It’s still different. I find it harder to focus now. This issue eats away at me slowly. It makes me cry. It makes me sad. It makes me feel empty……

but like a light bulb in my head it all became clear to me. I have to let this issue go. Its time to wash myself clean of what’s causing me to harbor these feelings. This is not me. I am not this girl. I am happy. I am healthy. I am alive. Its time to act alive. Because if I don’t this issue will conquer me and ruin the great potential that I posses for the future. when you are too busy lingering over the past you will not pay attention to the future. That is because the past is draining you of energy you need for the future.

Sometimes I think we don’t realize that the very thing that is hurting us is also what we can’t seem to let go of. We cling to it like it is the cure when usually it is the poison. We psych our minds into believing the issue at hand is not as big as it seems when in actuality it is major. It’s controlling who we are as a person.

However, the best part of being in this type of situation is that we are still in control. You have the power to put and end to it. Break free, break old habits, try new things. New is good. Yet the question left to answer is “will you be strong enough to end it?”

Whether it is a job, family members, lovers, friends, finances, etc you have to let go if there is anything negative associated it. Think about like this “it’s either you or it.” Do not drown trying to save something.
