When To Hold On And When To Let Go

Sometimes we feel so helpless that we hold on to things we are better off letting go. Letting go after all is not easy.

Hold on to that person when you find yourself making a better version of you. Good relationships should kick start Project Me 2.0. Usually, relationships inspire you to change your ways, but it can either be good or bad. Also, the change must come from within you, and you have to own it.

Let go of that person you can’t live without. Because you can. There’s an Arabic proverb that goes; I’m not searching for my other half because I’m not a half.

Hold on to him or her if he or she is someone you can talk to. Hold on if he or she is someone who listens. Sometimes we only need to be heard to feel better and figure things out. Be with someone who wants to hear you. 

Let go of that person who just won’t shut up. You only noticed this because you are not into him or her.
Hold on to that someone who amuses you, someone you want to know. Someone you find interesting. Look for the genuine attraction. It won’t be enough, but the relationship won’t work without it.

Let go of a liar. Time is of great significance. Liars are everywhere; please do not spend a minute on them. Remember, cheating can be emotional and physical, let go of someone who makes you believe otherwise. 

“I’m not upset that you lied to me; I’m upset that from now on I can’t believe you.” ― Friedrich Nietzsche

Hold on to the people you want to make happy and make them happy.

Let go of people who puts a price on everything. They suck. I hope you meet someone who shares the same ideas as you do about money.

You will be fine. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
