I’m Learning How To Love Moving On

Pete Bellis

I’m learning how to say ‘next’ and mean it.
How to let go of the past,
how to knock down the picture I painted
and embrace the blurry future.

I’m learning how to accept my fate
even if I don’t understand it,
even if I don’t know where it will take me,
even if I’m dying to change it.

I’m learning how to let what’s meant for me find me
instead of actively searching for it
or convincing myself that it’s right around the corner
or expecting to have it at a certain time.

I’m learning how to love moving on —
and understand that it doesn’t mean failure.
It doesn’t mean loss.
It’s not always my fault.

Sometimes moving on means strength.
It means maturity.
It means wisdom.
It means optimism.

Sometimes moving on is the only solution.
It’s the only way to keep going.
It’s the only way to welcome new things
and open new doors.

I’m learning how to enjoy moving on.
Enjoy the transition,
enjoy the lessons,
enjoy starting over.

I’m learning that moving on is a blessing.
The fact that you believe in a better future.
The fact that you can let go of the past.
The fact that you’re not stuck waiting.

I’m learning how to love moving on,
how to love walking away,
how to love saying goodbye
and how to survive on my own. TC mark

This Book Will Help You Let Go

“They think you’re mine and I’m yours. They think there’s a love story going on behind closed doors. They think it’s only a matter of time before someone tells them the truth they’ve been waiting to hear.

We roll our eyes when they joke about us being an item; we laugh at how ridiculous they’re being. But deep inside, I’m crying. I’m crying because what you’re taking as a joke is what I wish could be real.”

You look back and you just feel stupid.
You can’t forgive yourself for falling
or believing all the lies.
You reread every text.
You relive every memory.
And it all starts making sense —
he never wanted love.
He only wanted attention.
He only wanted validation.

“It’s just wondrous how every time I go through some emotional trauma, your posts are so relatable and it gives me so much hope. I love the writing and the photos. It’s all a pleasure to read. I can’t thank you enough for it, really.” — DM from @ThoughtCatalog Instagram follower
