(16.5) Courage: Letting Go


All of us have probably experienced this at least once in our lives.

Caring so much about someone who just doesn’t seem to care about you.

Giving so much of your time and attention to someone who is nothing but toxic in your life.

It takes a while to see it because you’re so invested in making that person happy, making that person like you, so you can imagine how much courage it takes to finally let that person go and say, “You’re not worth having in my life.”

It’s scary. You get thoughts like, they stuck by me for so long, will I ever find someone who will put up with me?

And that answer is yes. There are so many people out there who will and do genuinely care about your well being, want to see you happy, cheer you on, and who will give the world just to see you smile.

Those people are out there, and you just have to have the courage to let go and find those people you deserve.

This is also a lot easier said than done, but it is possible. Look out for the signs, and keep yourself safe.

This one was definitely more on the darker side of courage, with the imagery and the concept in general. It’s especially heavy for me personally because I have experienced it before. Those people meant the world to me, I did everything I could to make them happy. But when I finally realized the I wasn’t getting anything in return it honestly broke my heart. I was devastated. I blamed myself for a while, but after reaching out to someone else they helped me realized those people before weren’t worth my time, and that I could do so much better.

Now I’m in a lot better place, surrounded by people who love me and want to see me succeed. And I have never had so much confidence in my life before. So it’s great to know, it does get better.

That’s all for today, see you tomorrow!
