Dear Whoever Needs This,
Let it go. Those stories from your past follow you, they walk along behind you constantly whispering warnings in your listening ear. Telling of lessons learned, and heartaches gained. Be wary in listening. Take it in, and let it go. What has been, has been, and you cannot change it. With that being the case, what is the point in regret? Why let it ruin the beauty the future holds?
You’re afraid, and you’re shaking. Can’t quiet the voices in your head that tell you it might happen again… If you show your true self, will they turn in disgust and walk away? Demons hiding deep within, if they’re exposed will you lose the love you so long for? You never know until you try, and if you don’t, you will never have a chance at it. Having it and losing it-well, that’s better than never experiencing it at all, isn’t it? Even if you only have it for a little while, do you not want to taste it and savor it while it is there? I promise you, you do.
Let go for the fear you carry, let go of the doubt, worry, and insecurity. Just be.
Let it be. Leave it lie there, don’t poke it or scare it or try to force it to move. You can’t force things, you can’t shape them into what they aren’t supposed to be, and attempting to do so will only ruin their natural beauty. If you take something with so much possibility and interfere, it may never reach full potential, and then what are you left with? Let things be undefined and simplistic, which is how they are meant to be. Don’t complicate them with how you want them to be, and with your impatience. Be patient. Let it be what it is meant to be.
Let it in. Cease to block yourself off from the love those around you are offering. Open yourself up and absorb everything the world has to offer you. It can be scary, yes, and opening yourself up to all of the good things also leaves you open and vulnerable to the negative things in life. However, without the bad, how will you ever fully experience the good things life has to offer you? If you never feel all the heartache and hurt, how do you know to enjoy the happiness when you have it? How do you know not to take it for granted when life is wonderful? It will all be worth it, every bit of bad will have been worth it when you find the happiness you’ve so been searching for.
You deserve to be happy, and you are the only one standing in the way of that. Manifest your destiny, and be brave as you make your way through all of the obstacles that are between you and your objective. These are so small compared to the greater gifts that await you at the end of your journey. Wait for it, fight for it, and make it worth it.
Let it go; let it be, and let it in.
