I have a hard time letting go of people. I will try to hold onto friendships as much as I can. I will put in effort & get nothing back but I will still persist & not give up. By letting go, I feel like I failed to maintain a long term friendship. It must be a characteristic of mine, to think I fail if it doesn’t work. Only recently, I’ve started to realise there’s two people involved in this failure. Lately, I’ve re-evaluated my friendships. I’ve realised some were toxic. I’ve realised some have fallen apart beyond repair. And I’ve realised we’ve just grown apart. It’s no ones fault. We’re all going in our own directions. I can’t stop that from happening.
Today, I look back at all the fun times we’ve had in the past few years & I’m letting myself accept the fact that is all it is-the past.
I guess sometimes it’s okay to let go. I have people in my life who have been there for me since I was 7 and there’s people I met only this year but mean everything to me.
Today, I’m letting go of some old friends & I’m okay with it. I have amazing people around me who actually care about me & I know it.
