Why do we insist on holding on to things that no longer work for us? We’ve all seen it with our friends and we’ve all done it. We mourn lost relationships as if they are the only relationship we will ever have in our lifetime. Sometimes people come along to help us with some aspect of our lives. Maybe we needed to learn to be loved. Maybe we needed to learn to be independent. Or we needed to understand finance, family, love, friendship, or even letting go.
Each of us has a responsibility to ourselves to become the best version of ourselves we can be. That sometimes means moving on when we want to hold on. Yes – there are times to fight for a friendship or a relationship. Only you know. Just don’t hold on so long that you hurt yourself and miss the person who has been waiting in the wings for you to be ready for them.
It’s your life. Make some healthy decisions for your now and for your future.
