It can sometimes be difficult to move on, but it is undeniably the only option you have in certain circumstances.
And sometimes the more you distance yourself from someone, the more difficult it becomes to truly cut your relationship short.
Even though it may not sound that hard to do, letting go can take a lot more than most people might expect. First, you have to create some kind of a gap between yourself and the person in question and then start to address the feelings that this will bring as a result. And just because a person has caused you pain, it doesn’t mean your heart will be able to deal with their departure quickly.
It isn’t easy for human beings to let go, and you will likely be holding on to that person for a long time before your heart is able to heal completely.
And this is especially true if you have a deep history with that person. You will need to set aside some time to think it all through before you decide to end things for good, and we all know that nothing just happens in the blink of an eye and that such things need time to work their way into our system.
There will be times when you’ll find yourself thinking whether you’ve made the right choice or if you could have done something to save the relationship. You might find yourself thinking that if you just tried to make some more compromises then maybe things could have played out differently. This pain and suffering is all part of the process of letting go and at one point you will have to accept the circumstances of the situation and move on with your life.
Your wounds will heal with time, and eventually, you’ll be able to get on with your life and find true happiness.
Don’t forget that you’ve given this person plenty of chances but they kept on taking you for granted. You cannot keep them in your life only to let them hurt you even more.
It is crucially important when you’re going through a time like this to remain strong and composed. Things aren’t as dark as they might seem at the moment and there’s no point in delaying your dreams by wallowing in this pain for too long. Because there’s so much more to life than you’ve experienced so far.
And yes, the one you’re trying to leave behind might do everything they can to get back with you, but you must not give in.
You must remain strong and focus on your future goals and dreams. Because without new goals to aim for, the pain will only get worse. You don’t owe anyone an explanation for wanting to be happy.
Time will heal your pain, and in the end, you will find someone who truly deserves you.
