I’m Choosing To Let Go, I’m Choosing To Live

How many times have you felt so tired and have actually given up because you feel like your life is just not going to places you want it to go? It’s just frustrating to do so much or do less than what is right because you think that by doing such, you would finally get what you want.

But you see, no matter how much we want or not want certain things, sometimes, no matter how much we try, we can’t just avoid things in life from happening.

I have learned to let go of things and just let them be. I’ve tried so hard to control everything and make everything go according to what I think I want but it just frustrated me more when things went the opposite direction. I gave myself strict deadlines to accomplish impossible stuff or make things that are utterly uncontrollable happen.

It’s such a nice reminder sometimes, when I’m in my room, alone and just trying to figure out the next step, that I don’t have to know the next step all the time.

Sometimes, I just have faith and just take the step to know what’s in store for me. Life, I’ve finally accepted, is uncontrollable. Things happen. Both good and bad. Some parts are memorable but some are better left forgotten. People will leave. But more will come and if blessed, some will stay for good.

Just let go and take everything as it comes and as it goes. Nothing is permanent in this world. Some just take more time and space in our lives than others but they will be gone too someday, eventually.

Not being able to control life is not a bad thing, at all. It’s not meant to be controlled. We just have to do our best with what it gives us and make the most out of what we have.

We make choices everyday. Let’s not waste them. Choose to live boldly, fearlessly and ceasingly. Choose what makes you happy. Choose what makes and keeps you alive.

Choose to live every single day because that’s just how we make our stay in this world more bearable.  Thought Catalog Logo Mark
