Sometimes, we have to let go.
It wasn’t as easy as opening your hand to let go of a captured butterfly. It wasn’t as easy as letting go of a kite or a balloon way up into the sky. Because once you let go of a person who truly meant a lot to you, it also mean that you’ve released that strong hold of your heart, causing it to fall into the ground and got yourself all broken. Giving up everything would mean that you have decided to walk backwards from the person you always dreamt to be with for the rest of your life. But letting go of someone because it’s for the better is worthy enough to keep moving forward and cure yourself as you see him living happily even without you.
Sometimes, we really have to let go of someone especially if we’re already hurting a lot. We have to let go of someone if you are not really sure with what’s going on between the two of you. Successful relationships are not forced. It takes a lot of time and effort to know if a certain relationship is truly meant to last forever. If your relationship with someone happens to be a tug-of-war relationship, then, you might simple let go first of the rope and see if he would have the strength to stand up and hand you again the rope’s other end. Letting go doesn’t always mean giving up. It is just a proof that everyone of us gets tired on things that happen over and over again without learning anything. Sometimes, letting go means that you are giving him the choice to run up on you and tell you he can’t live without you, or, let you walk away from him and never expect you to come back again. Letting go is taking risk. Letting go is making decisions. And letting go is giving enough space for the two of you to realize if your love for each other is real. And if you are really meant for each other, even how many times you let go of each other’s hands, you would always end up holding it until the very end.
