Sometimes, letting go is difficult.
Sometimes, letting go is easy.
Sometimes, letting go is the best thing you can do for the sake of your sanity.
As part of the growth I experienced this year I found it necessary do away with the caustic people in my life. I should have purged these people a year earlier when they treated me badly, but I didn’t. I wasn’t sure I could live without them in my life. If I’m honest, I’d been used to being treated badly. Having been in abusive relationships nearly a decade will condition you to believe that you don’t deserve better; that you are a doormat.
But, I deserve better.
And, I discovered that I lived just fine without caustic, abusive people in my life.
My life went on and I was happy about it.
The sun came up and the sun set.
I did all the things I wanted to do with NO stress in my life due to the obnoxious people I’d allowed to be in it. In fact, my cowboy even said that I was happier when I hadn’t spent any time with the rotten apples dotting my life’s landscape.
Sometimes you have to let go.
And sometimes it’s the best thing for your life, for you and for the people in it.
What, or who did you let go of this year?
