People often say there is no good in goodbyes, but you know what? Sometimes there is.
Sometimes you just have to let an old dress, habit or person go.
Because if you didn’t, they’ll just occupy space, time and emotions you would rather use somewhere else. They’ll just sit there making you dizzy at the thought of letting go. Because why would you want to part with something that’s been a part of your life for so long right? It sounds mental.
Because it is mental, it’s all in your head. You can’t let that dress go because you have so many good memories of you wearing it, you can’t let that habit go because it became a habit to give you some structure, and you can’t let that person go because once upon a time they were so very important to you, maybe they still are.
But sometimes, being important and being stagnant in your life can be the same thing.
You can’t let someone go because you love them, but if you start questioning the reasons why you do love them and start coming up blank, you have to let it go.
So you hold on to that person, trying to tell yourself that you’re being crazy that this person has been there for me countless number of times and I can’t just throw it all away.
But when was the last time they were there for you?
And when was the last time they reminded you of all the reasons you love them for?
And when you start realising that it’s just you holding the thread between the two of you, you have let that thread go, because a thread between two people needs to be held from both sides.
So let that dress go to someone who would make some of their happy memories in.
Let that habit slowly disappear to fill your life with another one that will benefit you now.
And, let that person go, because the more you question your feelings towards them, the more you’re going away from each other.
