Today’s post is an important one. I was hesitant on sharing it but given that today is my birthday and that this year I wanted to make some changes, I decided to go for it and share it sooner than I anticipated.
When I decided to start this journey, I wanted to make it as open and real as possible. With this openness I also wanted to share some “lessons” that I have learned so far.
A key one has been learning to let go. Though it is very hard, it is important. What I mean by learning to let go is to know when to stop certain situations and just let them be.
An important experience I have had in the past years has been on friendships. As you go from being a “kid” to kinda being an adult, there are certain people you lose along the way.
Though it is very hard to accept this, some people were part of your life at one moment for who knows the reason. When that “treasured” friendship changes and is no longer healthy, you have to learn to let it go. Be thankful for the time you have spent and just accept that there is no longer a space for them in your life.
This goes for friendships that, I do not know if you have experienced this, but it is when you meet up with someone that you valued a lot in your life but suddenly you do not have anything in common, and not only that, but the person does not have the best interest of you at heart. Or every time you meet up with them you are left with the feelings of dread, anguish, tiredness, and dissapointment.
What I have learned is that there is no friendship that has more value than your own sanity. For your health and peace of mind is better to look back appreciate the moments you had with this person or people and just let them go. At the end you will be happier. It does not mean that you wont be able to see them ever again, it just means that the close bond you shared is no longer there. Though you may occasionally see them, just know that things have changed and is best to walk your own way.
Just wanted to share this thoughts and hope it gives an insight and help through this moment to anyone out there!
