Let it Go!
Isn’t it nice to have a friend for the times you break down over your broken heart and how much he hurt you and how you hurt, and that wonderful friend tells you,”That’s right, let it all out, tell me all about it”. Problem is, YOU TOLD YOUR FRIEND ALL ABOUT IT, AND ALL THEIR FRIENDS, AND SO ON AND SO ON!
They say write about your pain, vent it out, talk about it all that is good and dandy and one heck of a good idea BUT COME ON ALREADY YOU ARE STARTING TO SOUND LIKE A BROKEN RECORD!!!!!
The past a nice place to visit but we don’t want to live there anymore! We want to “Let it go”. I used to wallow in my agony, diving deeper and deeper into my pain. Telling anyone who would listen what a horrible man my ex was. It was like a tractor digging up the ground and pulling up old bones that I had long forgotten about. I let it out for 30 years! I was letting it out to him throughout the years, letting it out to his momma, to his poppa, to my friends and if they would have let me, I would have let it out on the five 0’clock news! Don’t you think we let it out enough? Basta! Enough!
Do you know what this wallowing does? It is keeps you in the pain. It keeps you in the past. It keeps you from being present to life now. Let the past be the past, it is time to start living! Regardless of who left who, you don’t need to live in that misery anymore. You are the navigator of your vessel, where do you want your ship to go, backwards where all that mucky pain is or forward where you a new life is waiting for you. No more relying on “him” to bring you happiness, when you are perfectly fine to do it for yourself.
So what’s it going to be captain!! Let it go! Let go of the past mama, because it will consume you and drag you down.
Wait, look over yonder…can you see it? It’s a shiny new day waiting for you, all you have to do is LET IT GO!!!
