I’m so tired of seeing so many people hurting, holding on to hurt, letting things control their lives and not leading them to their own personal happiness. So here I am to say: FOR THE LOVE OF GOD AND ALL THE WONDERFUL, BEAUTIFUL THINGS HE CREATED… LET IT GO!
I’m just going to jump right in now and say I want the best for everyone. I think it’s just in my nature. I’ve been told by my friends I’m the “mother” of us all. And to a degree, I agree (look at me rappin’ ha!); however, I just feel that everyone should do their best and be their best.
Sometimes I think people don’t know when things are bad for them (myself included), so here are somethings that I have learned along the way. How to know when to let go and the recovery:
- Emotions: if you think about who/what ever [that you’re considering letting go of] and it’s making you mad/upset, it’s no good for you. People should not affect your emotions so much because when they do that means they control you (and nowadays no one likes being controlled). Your emotions should not be completely tied up in someone else. You control your emotions. Do not invest your energy in something that in no way is benefiting you. Seriously, if you’re not the fam or related to me getting money… you are a liability and I have no issue with letting you go.
- Time: if you begin to feel like your time is being wasted then cut it. Cut it quickly. Why? Because you don’t get your time back.
Why waste your time by putting energy into something that is hurting you?
Ask yourself this question: is what I’m putting my energy into now going to help me in the future?
I will never understand why someone will continue to put their spirit in harms way, to be destroyed by things that could careless about you and how you feel. It’s okay to be a little selfish. It’s okay to want to be alone. It’s okay to say no. It’s okay to let things go when there are no beneficiary factors in it for you. It is perfectly okay.
Now, sometimes after letting something go it can cause you to be sitting on the sidelines for a few. And that’s okay, why? Because you never want to go back into the game after being hurt because you’ll just hurt yourself more and it will take even longer to heal (sometimes it might not even heal at all). Take a break, recoup, like Whitley from “A Different World” said, “RELAX, RELATE, RELEASE.” When something gets to me I give myself the max of three days to feel down, upset, or mad… But after that I do what I have to do to get back good again.
Do not let these ungrateful people hold you down. “Know yourself, know your worth.” – Drake
Know your worth then add tax and interest. You are better than these no good people out here that hurt themselves and only want to hurt others. And once you realize how powerful you are you won’t take anything less than the best because you deserve it. You deserve to be happy. Never stress the temporary.
Let go. Work on yourself. Glow, baby, glow!✨
