Journal Excerpt: Letting Go

I’ve been doing a lot of journaling lately…which is very beneficial to my writing. I am able to pour out my emotions and to let my vulnerability play out.

Well today I’m letting you, my readers, into this world of vulnerability. I’m not going to share everything, obviously but here’s an excerpt….

September 26, 2021

Life goes on, I suppose. I let go of something today. A friendship. It was necessary. It was necessary for my mental health. I had to let it go and I don’t believe I’m going to want it back. It’s just not worth it anymore. I’ve been playing this game far too long. Am I going to miss it? Probably for a little while but it will pass. It will pass. UGH! IT HURTS SO MUCH THOUGH! WHY must I be so dependent on someone who is absent from my life? This friendship has been one sided for quite some time now. I guess I just keep holding on to the possibility that our friendship could survive. But I continue to be the only one reaching out. The only one making an effort. So it’s time. It’s time to let go. Even as the tears fall, I know I will get through this. I came across this quote the other day:

Heal, so you can hear what’s being said without the filter of your wound.

Unknown

It’s time to let go….and heal.

Have you ever had to let go of a friendship?
