Trials, Tribulations, and the Art of Letting Go

Inhale.

Sit yourself down and breath.Count to ten.

Enjoy those few moments and just simply focus on breathing. Now, come to understand that you’ve had your trials and tribulations. Your patience has been tested, you’ve endured as much as you can, now you have to let go. Of course, it’s going to be hard; coming to the conclusion is hard itself. The most you can do is prepare yourself for the outcome.

Exhale.

Letting go of someone or something is probably the hardest decision you can come across. Every step leading to that moment has counted towards something. Whether you hang on tighter or you slowly let go depends solely on you. You don’t just wake up one morning and decide to let the things in your life go, there’s a reason. Find that reason and make sure it’s a damn good reason so you don’t regret it in the future.

Hold your breath.

Before you say your last goodbyes, hold on to this memory and remind yourself it’s for the better. You’ve come to a conclusion, after many sleepless nights and emotional roller coasters, you’re finally ready to face the truth. Take this moment to cherish the person or item for everything it’s given and taken from you.

Let it Burn.

You know you’re letting go and you know there’s no going back. Let that thought burn you; allow it to stain you so that it will hurt much less in the future. It will be a permanent scar that was earned through trials and tribulations, but a scar none the less.

Finally, Let it go.

Everyone knows that you never really let go when you say you’re letting go. It takes time, patience, and a lot of self-convincing. Once you’ve gone through all the emotions, you reach a point of breaking, also known as the burn, and you know you’re on the path of letting go. Like I said, it’s a process, a long, torturous process.

Collect yourself and smile.

One day, you will really be over it all. It’ll be painful at first, but if you continue living the day, no matter how long the day is, it’ll all get easier. You’ll get busy, you’ll want to be happy again, you’ll be motivated to take the change and make something of it. So, smile because it was worth it.

“Let it hurt then let it go.”
