The decision to let go and the act of letting go are two completely different things. The latter, you have absolutely no control over.
Often that is a choice your heart makes all on its own.
All you can really do is stand strong and decide you can no longer have that person in your life. This means no calls or texts, removing them from your social media and resisting the urge to look them up.
The old cliche ‘out of sight, out of mind’ doesn’t always work but more often than not, it does help.
Over time, the world keeps spinning and life keeps moving forward.
Even if you think you’re standing still.
One day, without you even noticing, you will be in a completely different place and find you aren’t so connected with the past anymore.
Letting go is something that happens gradually and once you have, it will no longer cross your mind. However long it takes, just take comfort in knowing you will get there in the end.
Much love and take care,
