I Am Letting Go.

I’ve been patient in life for so long.

I’ve taken everything bad that anyone ever said to me and I stored it deep inside.

I’ve waited and waited because I thought things would change, that people would change, that destiny would go easy on me and pay me back by letting good things happen.

All of that is about to change.

I’ve realized something.

I’ve realized that waiting for things to happen, waiting for things to change, is a lost cause.

Nothing will ever be different if I don’t take my destiny into my own hands. 

This time, I’m slowly starting to realize that.

I’m slowly learning to let go of everything that bothers me and people who don’t value me.

First, people, I’m letting go of all of you who never did anything good for me; if anything, you always made me feel bad.

I’m saying goodbye to the heartbreakers.

You, who shattered my heart into thousands of pieces. 

You, who made me pick up those pieces one by one, pieces of a broken mirror I used to enjoy looking at.

Now, I’m collecting those shattered chunks and putting that mirror back together.

Only, I’m not sure if I’m going to like what I see in the end.

I’m letting go of the traitors and backstabbers who were never there for me when I needed them.

My loyalty never meant anything to you.

The fact that I forgot about my own problems to take care of yours meant I only got an empty thank you from you.

But when things went downhill for me and I needed you to have my back, you pretended you couldn’t hear me.

You turned on me.

Here’s a special goodbye to a crappy life.

I’m letting go of all the life situations that made me think I was not good enough or that I was never going to be.

I’m saying goodbye to a life full of disappointment and seemingly unbearable obstacles. 

Nothing is impossible. Nothing is undoable. It’s you who is your own obstacle in everything you do.

When you think you can’t, you will never be able to.

I’m letting go of those toxic thoughts that are only bringing me down and limiting my abilities.

I finally realized that I can do whatever I want.

I have to try hard and I have to be persistent, to never give up. Impossible?

It will be impossible to slow me down. 

I’m letting go of the known.

I’m walking out of my comfort zone.

Great things don’t happen in comfort zones.

You won’t discover what you’re capable of if you just keep surrounding yourself with the things you know, with something that sure and bulletproof.

You have to risk a bit and find your way out of an unknown or uncomfortable situation.

That is when you build yourself and become better and stronger.

I’m learning to let go of a limiting life.

I’m learning to embrace the excitement of what this new life is bringing me. 

So, here I am, ready to embrace everything that awaits me.

Here I am, happy to welcome my new life and all the things that come along with it.

I’m ready to finally love myself enough to recognize what great potential I have, rather than being a hopeless failure like others made me think.

I’m ready to give myself credit for all the good things I’ve done and am about to do.

I’m ready to tackle my dreams because I finally have the courage to.

And I’m only brave enough because I decided to leave behind everything that is not good for me. 

I’m slowly learning to become who I was supposed to be all along—a fighter, a dreamer, and a real woman.

And to do that takes courage. It takes time to realize what is bad for you.

Bad Days Don't Last Forever.

I know you don’t believe me now.

I know that the pain you feel inside your chest is almost unbearable. I know you think this will never pass. 

But what you don’t know is, that bad days don’t last forever.

They are there just to remind us how small we actually are. 

They are there to let us know that we can lose everything we have within a minute.

They remind us of how everything can change quickly and that we can’t affect it.

But, on the other hand, those bad days won’t be there all the time.

Bad days can come and go just like good ones. 

But you know what is important?

It is important how you behave on those bad days.

If you feel you are having a bad day, just accept it. If you want to cry, cry.

If you want to talk to your friend, then do it. 

If you want to scream, then scream. Just don’t keep the pain inside.

Don’t do it because once it explodes, it will completely ruin you.

You are allowed to fight your pain in ways only you know.

It is fine if you want to be alone or you want to surround yourself with people. 

It is okay if you feel that your world is falling apart.

It is okay if you think that things will never be the same. It is okay to be a mess. 

Just know that things like that never last long.

They last just long enough to remind us that no matter how good life is, all can change in a second. 

They teach us to be humble. They teach us to respect life.

They make us go through hell to be happy. They teach us how to grow. But they never ruin us. 

So, please bear in mind that no matter how disoriented and bad you feel right now, it won’t last forever. 

Remember that there is always sun after some rain.

So, why are you worried in the first place?

It is not the first time life has played with you like this. 

You have had these moments before, and in most cases, you have matured as a person.

Even if you had a bad day, something positive happened inside you.

That is what you need to seek in every bad day.

Look for that one positive thing which can make a difference.

These things don’t have to be complicated.

They can be simple like…

Just one smile of a stranger on the bus.

One ‘take care’ your bestie types in a text.

One ‘thank you’ that an old lady tells you when you help her cross the street. 

If you don’t see the positive things in negative ones, it is like you are closing the doors to blessings.

Because first, you need to learn things in a harsh way, and then you will be happy. 

First, you need to be broken and sad so you would cherish the moments when you become happy and fulfilled.

Otherwise, you won’t recognize the real blessings when they happen to you. 

I hope that now, you have a totally different perspective of all the bad days that are about to happen to you. 

I hope you are aware of the fact that they are there to teach you a lesson.

They are there to show you that no matter how much money or power you have, you are as small as any other human being. 

And you will realize that life is all about the small things.

Maybe money can make you happy but not more than the smile of your child when he/she sees you after your day at work. 

Those hands around your neck are the most expensive and meaningful jewelry you will ever have.

So, cherish people. Forgive them. Give them second chances.

But don’t let them make a fool out of you.

Live to the fullest and try things so you don’t regret anything. 

And one more thing; keep that charming smile both on your good and your bad days.

His Path.

Life has beaten and bent you so many times, and you are surprised you are still standing.

It’s no wonder you’ve started thinking God has forgotten all about you or even stopped loving you. 

Shake that thought off right away because it’s not true.

When it comes to God, he only wants the best for you.

Trust me, I know. 

I also had that moment in my life where I looked up and asked Him directly: “Why do You hate me?” “What did I do wrong to pay for it with so many tears and disappointments?” 

I’ve been there, heartbroken, weak in faith, and emotionally exhausted.

But God made me ashamed for ever doubting Him. 

His path ended up being better than anything I could have ever imagined.

I just lacked patience.

I wanted things to fall into place immediately.

But that’s not how His path went.

It tested my limits. It made me feel weak and unwanted.

It made me doubt my purpose and my existence. 

I’ve been through a lot, and though love problems weren’t the worst that happened to me, somehow the pain they brought was the sharpest. 

So many times I hoped for the best and got the worst.

Everything would start off great.

I would get my hopes up, thinking that maybe this time my luck would change, but it never did. 

I would invest my whole being, and in the end, I would get one big fat nothing—drops of happiness and a sea of sadness; bits of love and a whole lot of disappointments. 

I wore my heart on my sleeve.

I was loyal to the bone, and I always gave the best of me for the person I loved…and I would end up hurt every single time. 

I didn’t know who I was, where I was going, and what destiny had in store for me.

I was lost and exhausted from my own feelings, and somehow God found me again. 

You see, all I needed to do was ask God to help me find my way and learn to trust His timing, and you should do the same.  

God can ease the pain in your heart.

He can be your main source of mental and emotional strength.

With him in your corner, there’s no reason why you will not be able to bounce back.

You are not alone.

We’ve all experienced similar feelings at one point or another.

We’ve all been down, and we’ve all gotten up eventually. 

Good and bad exchange paths all through our lives.

All the bad things that happen to us are our teachers; they force us to learn, and they strengthen us. 

If you are wondering why God allows these types of things to happen to you, the answer is strange, but God knows that set-backs and disappointments will make you a better person.

Every challenge in life is designed to test your courage, patience, and faith.

Running away from a challenge is one of the biggest mistakes that you can make in your life.

You should embrace every challenge with open arms.

God knows your tolerance level.

He knows how much pain you can bear.

He knows that you are much stronger than you think. 

Some pains are inevitable, and some of them are for your own good.

Him keeping you away from someone you are not meant to be with is definitely for your own good.

Staying longer than you should would definitely make irreparable damage. 

Some people simply don’t deserve to be in your life.  

Please keep in mind that emotional pain can serve your best interest.

It can help you become centered, and it can also help you build a stronger relationship with God.

God has your best interest at heart and He wants you to reach your full potential.

This is the primary reason why you face trials and turmoils.

All those falls will help you become a well-rounded human being.

They will teach you how to lift yourself up. 

Life is filled with small valuable lessons.

You must learn to take heed to them.

Once you do, you will become wiser, stronger, and bolder.

You will discover your own bravery, resilience, and true power.

You can learn from your mistakes and move forward.

Don’t make the mistake many people do and try to rekindle a toxic relationship.

Pursuing them is a waste of time and energy.

Believe me, I know that it can be hard to let someone go.

All those special memories and deep emotions can make it extremely difficult for you to move on with your life.

Sometimes you just have to forget what you want and think about what you deserve.

Sometimes you just have to change your mindset and look at the bigger picture. 

Instead of thinking that God hates you, try to look at it from His point of view. 

He is decluttering your life from toxicity.

He is teaching you how to love yourself more.

He is helping you build yourself into the person you were always supposed to be. 

He is clearing your path from everyone and everything that’s not meant to be, so you can find true love and happiness in your soul.
