Letting Go Is Not The Same As Losing Hope

When you decide to let go, it doesn’t mean you stopped caring or you lost hope, it just means that you’ve reached a point where you stopped trying to make others care or trying to make them love you.

When you decide to let go, it doesn’t mean you’re giving up, it just means that you’re ready to stop fighting a losing battle and you’re ready to stop fighting altogether and live in peace.

When you decide to let go, it doesn’t mean you’re settling, it doesn’t mean you’re weak, it just means you’re tired of being the one who always extends a hand to those who don’t want to hold it and you’re tired of opening your arms to those who turn their backs on you.  

When you decide to let go, it doesn’t mean you’re bitter, it means you’re forgiving, it means you’re trying to forget so you can heal, so you can move past the heartbreak. It means you’re putting your well-being first and you’re taking care of your heart for once.

When you decide to let go, it doesn’t mean you’ve stopped loving that person, it means that you’re starting to love yourself more. It means that you’ve stopped forcing someone to love you. It means you’re letting love come to you instead of chasing it.

When you decide to let go, it doesn’t mean that you’re falling down, it only means that you’re deciding not to carry that weight with you. It means you’re ready to be light again, you’re ready to run again and you’re ready to breathe again.

When you decide to let go, you’re not losing hope, you’re only hoping for more, hoping for better, hoping for something worth holding on to.

Because in letting go, you learn that sometimes hanging on hurts more, that fighting harder makes you lose and that waiting only wastes your time.

In letting go, you learn that some people only come into your life to teach you how to move on, to teach you exactly who you shouldn’t hold on to.

In letting go, you learn that the things that you’re afraid of doing are exactly the things you need to do so you can grow and set yourself free.

In letting go, you learn that you may lose some people but you will always find yourself. TC mark

Writing makes me feel alive. Words heal me.

Nothing terrifies me more than being so close to someone and then watching them become a stranger again

Nothing scares me more than someone loving me one day and deciding they don’t want me the next. Nothing terrifies me more than being so close to someone and then watching them become a stranger again.
