The Art of Letting Go

I call it ART because it’s something we all are born with, but need a lot of practice and learning to do.

We all have artistic ability in some form. Imagination through writing, painting, crafts, what have you…but some people are just better at it than others.

Art is one of those things that only improves with time and by learning to improve our skills.

I believe that letting go is the same way.

When people say,”Just let it go”, it may seem like the easy thing to do, but we all know it’s not.

When you’re holding onto something that embedded into your very spirit, it’s not so easy to just say, “Okay, I’m done.I’m over it”, and move on, but what if your own mental health depended on it?

Letting go doesn’t mean you stop caring. It doesn’t mean we forget or  that we even want to forget, but it means we are allowing ourselves to heal.

Letting go isn’t a form of denial, either. Letting go, even when you don’t want to, might just be the healthiest thing you can do for yourself and it takes time. Time does heal all wounds, but the scars are left behind. Scars are only faded through time by learning to open up again and put yourself first this time. Realize what you NEED, not want, and start putting the plan into action.

If you aren’t ready yet for any of this, then just breathe.
