I know they always told you that the real strength is in holding on, and in some cases, that’s true.
But what if I told you that most of the time that letting go is the true strength?
That pain that you’ve been carrying with you all this’s not making you stronger to hold on to it.
The pain from a breakup, childhood hurt, the way someone treated you, when someone made you feel not good enough… that’s been tearing you apart for far too long.
You’ve been burying that your entire life and it’s done nothing but bring you down and cause you more anguish..
I’m talking to you.
You’re right that no one will ever know those roads you once traveled and the pain you had to endure..
But it’s time to stop carrying those angry feelings and guilt with you wherever you go.
True, you may never understand why someone mistreated you or hurt you, but you can’t worry about that any more.
Every minute you spend dwelling on things you couldn’t control is time you’re not healing.
Yes, I know it’s hard to let go of the memories, the pain and the feelings of selflessness..
And you should never forget where you’ve been, but you deserve better than to let them continue to destroy you.
You’re more than enough- don’t you dare let anyone tell you that you’re not amazing, beautiful and worthy of the best that life has to offer.
Once you start opening your eyes and heart to the beauty of life all around you, you’ll start to see more wonderful things happening to you.
I know it’s going to hurt and you’re still going to have sleepless nights, but you’ll find that the more you begin to let go, the lighter your burden will feel.
Truth is, you’ll never really understand why they hurt you and you have to be okay with that.
All that negative energy and those ugly feelings of resentment, guilt and shame are slowly eating away at your soul.
Take back your power and wrest control of your life and your joy from those things that live in your past.
I’m not saying you have to forget them, because the scars they left have created the beautifully unique person that is you.
Never regret the roads you’ve traveled or the people you’ve loved-
Every one of them taught you something before they left..
It’s up to you to learn their lesson and let go of their pain.
Honestly, I don’t know what tomorrow holds and sometimes, I don’t even know how we’ll get there..but we will, together.
You’re not alone.
Throw off the shackles of the painful past that have been weighing you down and you’ll discover your wings have been there all along, just waiting for you to learn to fly.
Yes, it’s going to hurt and you’re going to cry, but not for the same reasons you once did.
Take back your power and find your strength..rise from those ashes that you’ve been carrying with you for far too long.
Turn the page.
Begin a new chapter.
Write a new story.
Maybe your tale was once a montage of pain, sadness and guilt, but not anymore.
This chapter , this new beginning is a story of rising from the fire, letting go of the pain and starting to finally live again.
You’ve been down for too long.
It’s time to start climbing and learning to fly.
It’s not enough to simply discover your wings..
You must find the courage to fly.
