When You Don’t Want to Let Go, but They Already Have
Have you ever been there? You see a post from an ex on social media and he’s just livin’ la freaking vida loca. Maybe a friend tells you she saw him out with a new woman. Perhaps you’re still together, but you know he’s already emotionally checked out. You can feel it, but you don’t want to admit it to yourself, let alone anyone else.
He’s moved on and you know it.
You’re not exactly sure when it happened, but you can feel the miles of distance between you. Or, you can remember the exact moment where something changed. One of you said something that you couldn’t take back.
“Let go of those who are already gone.”
Powerful, concise, and incredibly painful. If we know the statement is true then why do we hold on for so long?
Let’s make this the time we decide to release people from our emotional captivity. There are 7.125 BILLION people on the earth and we get so damn stuck on 1. I know that there was something special about them, but I promise you that you can find a connection with someone else…when you really decide you want to. If you know that he has already moved on, emotionally or physically, it’s time to really let him go. This also applies to friendships and unfortunately, sometimes family members. If you can feel deep down in your core that someone has walked away from you then it’s time. It all starts with the decision to do it, then I promise your heart will follow. So starting today, whenever the thoughts or pain start to creep back in, say it in your head, out loud, in the mirror, to your mama, or to your dog…”I release you.” Say it, believe it, and watch your life change.
