It’s okay to let go, that’s its all right to say goodbye. It’s a cruel truth within our lives that like the leaves of a tree, love disappears into the wind easily. How do you survive experiencing the most beautiful love and then suddenly finding it diminished or gone? You learn that love is, like sadness, like joy, seasonal. You learn that the only love that truly lasts in the love you hold in your heart for your family, for the chosen few and you forgive others for forgetting you. You know that love stays when you can let go of self doubt, when you feel safe hearing a voice, when they make you smile when you cry and you can recognise that that love is worth more than any other person who has left you in the wind to blow away.
I want you to remember not to assess your worth by how temporary others have been in your life. Even if someone was wonderful, you need to realise that wonderful people have the right to walk out of your life too. In the same way, you have the right to walk away from a wonderful person because you have outgrown them, because they no longer fit in your heart. Sometimes you’ve broken your head and your heart for another only for them to take what you’ve given them for granted. And the you find another that’s willing and trying and hopeful, and all of a sudden it’s okay. You’re okay again.
Recognising this fact will not just allow you to grow, it will help you breathe freer every single day. Stop assessing your worth by how many people have walked away from you or how many people have gone without being the right person. Saying goodbye to someone toxic is only possible because you know that you deserve better. You can walk away from anyone at anytime when you realise that they’re just not the right fit. You have not walked away from yourself yet. And that is what counts most of all. And you never know, after everything you’ve been through there will be a stranger who will come into your life saying “I’m here and I promise that I will be your life support.”
