Letting go of someone you love doesn’t mean you stopped loving someone.
You just realized that it’s already enough and you have to change your course as the person you’ve loved all along doesn’t feel the same way like you do;
his heart is somewhere else;
it doesn’t feel right;
you’re hurting instead of healing;
you’re not growing as a person;
you’re not receiving from everything that you have been giving, although loving doesn’t really require to actually receive all the time, but hey, it’s give and take.. not just give and give.
Strength isn’t measured on holding on but it’s also about letting go.
Letting go, is not also about forgetting.. one cannot completely forget someone he/she loved truly and deeply. Just because one has decided to let it go that doesn’t mean he/she has forgotten every thing.
To some, they’d always think of this as selfishness, yeah right. Put it as that.. selfish that you have to think of yourself and think of what’s best for you. Selfish in a way that one must have to stop doing what is needed to be done not for the sake of others but for the sake of one’s self.
A heart that loves is a heart that always forgives, and always treasure the person’s great deeds deep within her/him and when one decides to let go, one must move and live the life he deserve but more often that not, people label moving on differently.
Moving on isn’t about finding someone right there and then just to show every one you’re happy. Moving on isn’t about wearing your best smile every day to let people know you’re fine.
Moving on isn’t about being in a relationship days after you broke up with someone and use another person as a rebound and a filler or someone to kill the time while you’re heart is still broken. It’s not about blaming others, too for what you have become and what your heart has become.
Moving on is about healing.
It’s about taking the time to heal and forgive people that has caused you pain, it’s about forgiving oneself for letting these people hurt you and allowing them to hurt you.
And lastly, moving on isn’t about waiting for that someone you love to come back or expecting he’d open his arms and come running after you.
Moving on is letting go of the things and thoughts of what could’ve been and what ifs and think about yourself. Think about the things that you deserve. You deserve better.
Moving on is having to say I still love you but you’re not worth this PAIN.
Do not settle for less, instead trust in God and lift everything unto Him. Let go and Let God. 🙂
He’s prepared someone for you, someone who’ll love you more than you loved that someone in the past and more than you wanted to be loved.
Someone who’ll show you that love doesn’t hurt, love heals. 🙂
Someone who feels your pain when you’re in pain, someone who stands by you not when you have something but even in times when you have nothing. 🙂
I actually do not know how I came up to those thoughts as I am feeling so down this very moment.
Not that I have flashbacks of the past but just feeling a bit tired and fed up..
That moment when you want to give up but you can’t coz you know and you feel that there’s something greater that’s coming.. something worth the pain. Something greater than the pain you’re experiencing.
Still hopeful here, for the joy that is coming is greater than the pain that I am feeling.
Lovely weekend WordPress! 🙂
