“When a thing has served its purpose, it will go away. If you try to hold on to something that has already fulfilled its purpose in your life, you are going to hurt yourself. If holding on is disturbing your peace of mind, it makes sense to let go. Surrender all attachments to people and things that you have been struggling to hold on to.”
– Iyanla Vanzant
The space between us was going to grow, that much I knew; so much so that even if we were to sit next to one another, we’d just feel miles apart. Words would flutter between the empty space, taking roundabout ways to reach the ear. By then it’d be distorted into things we’d rather believe.
Only now do I realise the absurdity. Believing in your own independence when your daily dose of happiness was hooked to them… You don’t depend on anyone. Smell the scent of florals from the breath of your own making.
I hold comfort in these words, finally trusting that it was the right choice and the right time to throw in the towel.
