Let It Go
I was discussing relationship breakups with a few friends on my job, we all have one thing in common, it hurts like hell. Whether you’re the dumper or dumpee the pain of a breakup is one of the most hurtful and humiliating experiences you’ll probably go through in your life.
I remember reading an ad online which stated that one of the greatest gifts given us in life is the right to breakup from any situation that isn’t in our best interest. In other words, we should rejoice at the idea of finally letting go of that unworthy person or situation that was holding us back from our right to happiness.
Many times we hurt so bad we cry and do things that we later regret because the pain is so intense. Well one thing I found out after much research in this area is that we don’t cry because we want that person back. We cry because we finally realize that the individual we thought we fell in love with was not real. We cry because we’ve come to the realization that this person we put on a pedestal really wasn’t who they claim to be.
I’m not saying that the person is bad by any means, what I am saying is that they were not for you. Common sense is the tool that is used to weed out individuals whom if given the opportunity would cause you more pain than the actual breakup.
It takes time to truly recognize what type of person you might be getting yourself involved with. Be patient and continue to be observant, all that glitters ain’t gold. Letting go of a person or situation that isn’t good for you is a gift not to be taken for granted. Utilize this time wisely and do some soul searching, and if you’ve learned your lesson well you won’t be headed into another dead end relationship. Take this time to grow and become stronger and wiser so that in the future you will be able to spot these types of people before it’s too late.
