I’m Letting Go Of The Things I Can’t Control

Roberto Nickson

I’m ready.
Whatever that’s in store for me in the future,
I’m ready.
Whoever in my life decides to leave, for a mean time or for good,
I’m ready.
Whoever decides to stay,
I’m ready.

I am done holding on to things and people. I am done waiting. I am done hoping for something to happen. I am done hurting myself for expecting something more than what people can give me.

No. I am not giving up. I haven’t lost all my hope. I haven’t turned into a rock and decided to push everything away from me. Actually, it’s the other way around. My hope has been refilled and I am slowly learning how to accept people and allow them in my life.

This is just me letting go.

Letting go of everything that I can’t control. Letting go of all the pain that I caused myself. Letting go of all the what if’s. Letting go of all the expectations and delusions that I fed myself with for a long time. Letting go of all what could have been.

Letting go of the memories that I tried to hold on to so tight. Letting go of all the feelings and the emotions that those memories induce. Most especially, letting go of the people whom I tried to hold so close to me that unconsciously became something so poisonous to the relationship. I somehow wanted to own them. I somehow wanted them for my own alone. I was selfish.

I realized that, that wasn’t love at all. That’s not how I want to be.

So now, I am ready.

Ready to face and accept whatever comes my way.

Ready to be strong if the situation requires it from me.

Ready to work hard to finally do the things that I really want to do in life.

Ready to find my purpose.

Ready to grow into a person that God wants me to be.

Ready to feel the happiness that I know I deserve to feel.

Ready to accept love and give love to the people I care about.

Whatever it is, I am ready.

Whoever it is, I am ready. TC mark

“The essays in this book are short and sweet, and incredible. Love love loved this.” — Alex

“I’m so in love with this book! It’s so moving and some of the stories bring me to tears not because it’s sad, but because it’s relatable and shows that we’re not alone.” — Kendra

This is the reality of Instagram...
