Let Go


I have a very hard time letting go of people.
When I've let you in my heart I root you in there nice and tight.
Sometimes it leads me to accept being treated in ways I don't deserve.
Sometimes it leads to an imbalance of feelings.

When it's time to let go, to lose the relationship, I resist.
I hate breaking ties - for any reason.
But coming to this realization recently has been a great thing for me.
Sometimes, you just have to give people up.
Not give up on them, but remove them from your priority list.
Take away their reserved parking spot in your heart.

You can go crazy if you don't.
I'm not interested in any more crazy around here.

That's exactly how I have always felt - about friendships, relationships, my girl friends, my guy friends . . . I'm so happy to hear I'm not the only one! (though I'm sorry you're going through that)
