sometimes you let go of people without even noticing. You stop thinking about them every day. You stop waiting for them to reply to you. You stop allowing them to take up so much space in your life. You move on, you go about your day without worrying about them. You stop expecting them to come back with an apology. You accept that they're no longer a part of your life anymore. You let them go, simple as that.
If that's how it goes for you, I applaud you. You're one of the lucky ones. For many of us, that's just not how it works. I wish it did, but it doesn't. You spend your every moment thinking about them, reminiscing about them, praying for them to message you. It slowly starts to tear yo apart.
That needs to stop. And i get it, sitting in the limbo where you're being disappointed every day sounds like a better prospect than accepting it's over.
Stop. Take a minute to look at whatever situation your in from an outsider's point of view. I know it's hard to hear for all of us, but you have to move on. I know you feel like whatever flame you were has been burned out, and I know you still love them, and i know you feel like a useless pile of ashes. You're not. You're not. And Go help you if you are a phoenix and dare to rise from the ash.. A thousand eyes will smolder with jealousy while you're flying past. Whoever it is that you're trying to let go of, make sure they watch you rise from whatever they've put you through, wave as you go past. One of the most courageous decisions is to let go of whatever is hurting you.
Please do not forget that someone is there, someone loves you, maybe this time it's just not who you expect.
