Sometimes you have to let them go even if it hurts. You have to let them go because keeping a place in your heart for them will do nothing but cause you pain - and all of the things that you've had to go through as a result of you hanging on to them have already repeated themselves more times than you should ever have had to go through. You have to let them go because you should never allow hurting you to become anyone's routine - and eating away at your happiness to become anyone's regular meal.
Protect your happiness. No matter how close to you the people that may be taking it from you are. You have a life to live and to enjoy - not to have you happiness drained, or your energy taken to the point where you're too tired to put it into the things and the people that matter. Learn to set boundaries - and once you do don't unset them. Choosing to be happy isn't selfish it's necessary.
As always please share with anyone that could use this x
Busy couple of days but I'm back. Needed a short break to refocus and re-energise. Don't forget to take some time out for yourself (or that it's okay to) when you need it. -
Leave a message in the comments and let me know how you're doing ♥️
tears fell with intervals of laughter.
and a cheeky smile just like yours
now belongs to your daughter.
i’d never seen so many stars,
but i’m comforted to know
that you are now one of them.
