Earlier this year, I had to close a door on a relationship that I had held open for almost two years. I had held onto the hope that things would change for so long and to be honest, I’m not ashamed of my tight grasp on hope. I am a very hopeful person and I always try to see the bright side of things, but in this case it only caused me pain, because each time the “bright side” didn’t shine through, I found myself disappointed.
This post is about when you finally make the decision to move on. It’s no easy pill to swallow, because no matter how lightly you think you took a relationship, you would have invested some of yourself into it, and so moving on means parting ways with an investment. I think what helped me during my experience was allowing myself to grieve; I took the time to thoroughly process all that went wrong and assess the mistakes that I wouldn’t want to repeat in the future. I weighed all that I had invested against the possibilities that the future may hold and of course, I prayed about it.
It’s important to understand and accept that you are not restricted to what you have found, and that there is always going to be a chance to find what you had and even more elsewhere, no matter how amazing the past relationship was.
Have faith & stay positive.
Till next time,
