The Art of Letting Go is a craft I have yet to master.
I am a professional at holding on to things and people that are no longer beneficial to my life.
For so long I thought sticking around made me brave. Being loyal to people no matter what showed that I was a good person regardless if they were good for me or not. When I stopped romanticizing things , I saw them for what they were.
I have stayed loyal to company’s knowing it was impossible to grow.
I have kept friendships that were only negative and one sided past their expiration date.
Subjected myself to romantic relationships in which I was treated as if I was disposable.
What about accepting that treatment sounds brave? None of those people or businesses deserved my loyalty.
They weren’t adding to my life.
They didn’t protect my life.
They don’t deserve a place in my life.
Releasing all things and people that do not benefit me has been a difficult task. I have a hard time parting with my shoes so the struggle with people is real. The goal here is to end the cycle of allowing those that aren’t beneficial to linger around but rather release them once red flags are shown.
The Art of Letting Go is a craft I have yet to master. I am ready to retire my career of holding on to things and people that are no longer beneficial to my life and make room for more beautiful moments with the beautiful souls that were meant to pollinate my life.
