It hurts to let go but sometimes it hurts more to hold on
November 6th - hanging on or letting go
There’s an important difference between giving up and letting to.
I think that letting go hurts so much because we feel like we’ll forget the ones we love. But let me tell you that it hurts so much more to hold on.
Never let go of the memories you shared. Never let go of keepsakes. But let go of your regret, your sadness and your rage. Life is an endless cycle which flows, turns, and slips through our fingers despite how much we want to hold on to it.
Life is a difficult balance between holding on and letting go. We aren’t taught this in school and it’s something we are not prepared for. However, one of the many things we learn is that there are different types of loss in life.
We must learn to enjoy the here and now. What was lost yesterday no longer exists . Let it go, accept it.
We say hang in there and then say let it go, It’s a fine line. And sometimes it’s the people we hold on to are the reason we can let go.
Some of us think holding on makes us stronger, but sometimes it is letting go..
