Letting Go


letting-go of a relationship

Letting go is like death. This is why I never did it before. I kept holding on, layer by layer, another reason to not let go. And then one day I did. Something clicked and I just let go. After years of not being able to, and not knowing why, this was the day I knew how.

And then the emptiness came. The pure, unbridled sadness that was unable to come before. And I realized why I could never let go before. Letting go is like death. There is no turning back, there is only facing the fear that the emptiness brings.
