This is a hard thing for me to do, but it’s something that I’m working towards. There are things in life that we as human beings just cannot control and obsessing over those things is only causing us more pain than we could ever deserve.
If something doesn’t align with my life and where I want to be, I move on from it, period. I’m done letting people around me control me and do their best to turn me into someone that I’m not. I am done chasing after people who refuse to see me for who I am.
I might want some of the things I’ve had to walk away from to work out in the end but giving those things my energy was bringing me down and that’s not something that I need to be feeding into. I need to work harder to find myself and to really come to understand who I want to be in this world.
Yes, I like many others have made mistakes before but those mistakes do not define me and they are not things I can do anything about in the present moment. The more I stand still drowning in the aftermath of those things the further behind I get and that’s just reality.
We’re all on our own paths in this world and you should never let the things you have no say in define who you are as a person. I’m done fighting battles that are not mine to fight and I’m done searching for happiness in other people. I need to do what is best for me and live this life for myself, above all else.
I in the past never really took the time to look at things from an outside perspective and I believe that in many ways held me back for a lot longer than I wish I had allowed it to. I am now in a better place but it took me a long time to get here. I am working to figure out who I am more and more each day but that doesn’t mean I am done. I still have a lot of things to learn in this world.
I am still someone who makes the wrong decisions from time to time, and I am still someone that can be a lot to handle here and there. Learning to let things be and to go with the flow isn’t as easy as it sounds and it takes time. That being said, if we all work harder to be more positive and full of growth this world would be a much better place.
We are capable of bringing forth the change we want to see if we all are willing to help ourselves through helping one another within reason. You don’t have to keep going back and forth with people who want to do you harm and you don’t have to allow the negativity in this world to take a hold on you. You can let go and let be in all possible ways if you really want to become the best possible version of yourself.
