Are you ready to fall in love with the sound of your feet? Sometimes, you have to find the strength in life to walk away from things that no longer serves you, walk away from drama, or people who no longer belongs in your life... There is no better feeling that making space for things that are meant for you and your path... Never be afraid, when one door closes, another opens... Walk with faith, walk in grace... 🌸 ...
We think being strong is all about hanging on, fighting until we're blue in the face, and being there, time and time again, no matter the pain a person or situation causes us.⠀
But sometimes that's not strength.⠀
Sometimes strength is found in letting go.⠀
For anyone fighting through heartbreak right now, I hope these words give you courage. They're from my piece, "I Will Love You In Letting Go," on Thought Catalog:⠀
"Watching you walk away has taught me that sometimes people leave, and sometimes, no matter how much you love someone, you cannot convince them to stay. And you shouldn’t have to.⠀
I could whisper sweet words. I could scream. I could run after you with open arms, begging you to walk back into my life. I could cry and kick and cause a fuss, just to have you turn around and talk to me. But ultimately, you know where you want to be. And that isn’t with me. And I’m okay with that.⠀
I’ve learned that sometimes love does not look the way we want it to. Sometimes we give our everything to people who do not return their hearts to us. Sometimes we dream of something bigger, something real, only to be left chasing shadows, grabbing ahold of whatever we can before it slips between our fingertips.⠀
I’ve learned that sometimes you can care so much for a person, but you still drift apart. Because you are looking for answers in someone who does not even care to know your question. Because they themselves are searching for something else, something that does not resemble you.⠀
And so, I have learned that sometimes loving is synonymous with leaving. With watching as someone walks away, finds their own path, own story, own hands to hold.⠀
Sometimes love is the same as letting go." ⠀
@thecrimsonkiss perfectly summarized the last year and a half of my life.
This perfectly describes how I felt as I walked out the door for the last time, still loving my husband while 4 months pregnant with our child.
HARDEST thing I’ve ever done.
TOUGHEST choice I’ve ever made.
MOST NECESSARY steps I’ve ever taken. ...
For what it's worth,⠀
It is never too late.⠀
Or in my case - too early⠀
to be whoever you want to be.⠀
There's no time limit.⠀
Start whenever you want.⠀
You can change⠀
or stay the same.⠀
There are no rules to this thing.⠀
You can make the best of it⠀
I hope you see things ⠀
that startle you.⠀
I hope you feel things⠀
you never felt before. ⠀
I hope you meet people ⠀
who have a different point of view.⠀
I hope you live a life you⠀
are proud of.⠀
And if you're not⠀
I hope you have the courage ⠀
to start all over again. ...
