Letting go of some people who no longer make you happy can bring you peace of mind. It only means that you value yourself and you know our worth. Yet, some people choose to stay with people or situations that no longer benefit them. No matter how you love the person is, being selfless is an unhealthy thing to do. It’s not an excuse that you don’t have a choice and there’s nothing you can do about it because you have, we all have.
These days, I’ve been thinking about letting go of some of the good people in my life. Not because they did something wrong to me but because I realized I have to clear some space for better people that are coming. Sometimes, saying goodbye is not necessary because deafening silence already represents it. Leaving toxic friendships, relationships and even situations is one way of saving yourself from feeling worthless. As much as I say to myself that I don’t care anymore, I still do because I always thought the times and memories I shared with them were wasted. But this time, giving importance to my freedom, self-worth, and happiness is what I don’t want to waste.
You don’t have to feel guilty for being selfish to others when it comes to your time and life in general. It’s no one’s fault that you grew apart as time goes by and it’s normal. Some things are better left as memories and all you can do is to cherish them and be grateful that you’ve met them. People change and it’s a harsh truth and all you can do is to focus on improving yourself and be the best version of you.
