The Power of Letting Go

17 Jul

If you ask anyone I’ve “fallen out” with, they will tell you it’s like the line in “Goodfellas.” There are no raised voices, no tearful ultimatums, no explanations, I just stop talking. I’m saying this because today I made the decision to end a relationship with someone I respected and cared for. I typed out this very long, flowery, grammatically correct text and then promptly deleted it. Why? Because everything that I typed I have said a million times and I just didn’t have energy this time. If my friend hadn’t heard me those million times, one more time will not matter. So today, I pack that relationship away. Will it hurt? Yes, but just like everything else in life, I will get over it and through it…

    I am the same way when I cut people off. Friends have said I should have a black belt in the art. Although I haven’t had to do it in a few years, I’m about to with a very very close friend. My supposed to be best friend. Yesterday I almost sent a text (not flowery at all) but stopped for the same reason you did. If they didn’t get it before, they won’t get it now.
