Sometimes we have to make tough decisions in order to move forward in life. Sometimes, we have to say goodbye to people, places, things, habits and unfulfilled desires to have a chance at something better, greater, bigger and more extraordinary than we could even imagine. Those times can be really hard.
I’ve been there. I’ve had to let go and never look back. I’ve had to leave things unresolved because a resolution would mean compromising my beliefs or being manipulated. It’s hard to accept an apology you never got. It’s tough to let your heart heal when all it wants to do is turn around and go back to that negative influence.
Sometimes your heart will linger in that place and reminisce, tempting you with the thought of turning around, rekindling something or trying again. It won’t be different this time. The person/thing/situation hasn’t changed. You gave ‘it’ up for a reason. It was either hurting you or hindering you from being great.
- What do you need to leave behind?
- Are you clinging to habits, people or situations that are holding you back?
You’re stronger than you think and you’re not the same person anymore. Be brave! Keep moving forward and don’t you dare look back.
