Rhett and Scarlett

Sometimes we have to let people go. Because they’re not good for you, or because you’re not good for them. It’s not easy, I’m not saying it ever is, but sometimes you know that at the end of the day, you’re better off alone than hurting each other more.

I have to let people go. I’ve had to have a lot of people leave.

Sometimes you just need time or space to forgive past trespasses, but sometimes the burden is too hard to let go.

And in those moments when you realize you can’t let go of the past, is the moment when you need to let that other person go on with their life. We can’t expect people to bend and shape themselves to fit our needs. And we can’t be angry that they won’t. Everyone wants to be accepted as they are, even if it means they still have a lot of space to grow.

I still have a lot of growing to do myself. I have so much yet to accomplish, and I have accepted that I embarked on this journey on my own and I will arrive the way I came.
