The Struggle To Move On

I’ve never been someone who could let people go easily. In fact, initially the phrase “let it go” used to really annoy me because I didn’t know what it meant or exactly how to do it. And there are times when I still struggle with it a lot.

I tried and made myself allow people, their behaviour and their emotions until second chances became natural to me. I was taught to be kind and understanding and to never assume what someone else was going through. And that is who I had been for a very long time. To such an extent that I would suppress all the bad memories, and I wouldn’t even care to remember what they did to me because it’s forgive and forget, right??

But as the days were passing by it was getting harder for me to watch myself from the sidelines as the very same people, I considered to be thoughtful and compassionate took advantage of how I was. I gave countless second, third and fourth chances based on promises and apologies. But finally, I realised that “actions speak louder than words” and that some people are only words. Because for how long are you supposed to just keep on giving. After all, it simply causes more pain and it’s high time we all start to choose who we want to give our energy to.

So, to anyone who’s struggling to let go of things and people, it’s high time that you become more aware of what you want in life. I know it’s hard in the beginning but if the end goal is peace then your current goal has to be letting go. And not just situations but people as a whole. You won’t always fit perfectly with everyone, and you can’t expect them to either.

So, just go all out and start realising that anything and anyone who disrupts your happiness and no longer serves you on your journey is not worth your time and energy. You simply need to choose to search for your own happiness and accept that sometimes we all sail into our lives having to leave some people behind in the harbor and choose to move on!!
