A Strategic Plan For Letting Go

The pain shocks you.

It feels like your heart is turning against you to attack itself.

You're drowning, and it feels like there is no chance for air again.

You can catch your breath. Yes.

It hurts to think about it. Them.

Here's what you'll lose: The memories. The laughter. The connection. The secrets. The hope of forever.

I want to be honest about this.

There's no more time.

Letting go can be difficult because we often form strong emotional attachments to people and things. Whether it is friendships or intimate relationships, the truth is that we become so invested in a person or a situation that it can be hard to let go and move on.

Moving on without them is never fun.

It feels like we are giving up on them.

On yourself.

But you're not giving up.

In fact, you're demonstrating that you care for both you and them. You have so much to gain on the other side of this challenging situation. You must keep this in mind.

Here are a few steps that might help you as you journey forward.

1. Communicate your feelings to the other person.
