Letting go is realizing that some people are part of your story, not your destiny. That doesn’t mean it doesn’t hurt. Farewells always hurt like hell, even if it’s the best thing to do. That is one of the emotional laws that govern our life in interaction with others. There are relationships (or people) that make a dent, but no matter how hard you fight, no matter how much you try to save, no matter how much you love, no matter how much you have to stay, simply with a breath, they fall apart. It is not pleasant to say goodbye but, sometimes, it is liberating, and it is in that freedom that beauty and need reside. Because, sometimes, we have that need to leave to be happy, to leave behind a life full of pain and worries, to abandon emotional uncertainty, to obtain our inner peace, and to be the architects of our emotional freedom. It is better to walk away and leave a pleasant memory than to insist and become a real nuisance. What you did not have is not lost, what is not yours is not kept, and you cannot cling to something that does not want to stay.
It Is Better to Say Goodbye Without Leaving Words in the Inkwell
That is not to say that sometimes the sadness that drives us adrift is not worth it. You have to know how to say goodbye to people who damage a part of you, considering that we can draw a lesson for future experiences from everything, absolutely everything. Because it is nice to love and learn from relationships that cannot be, this is reflected very well by a great writer, Gabriel García Márquez. From the passage that we present below, we can extract great emotional learning about the importance of WANTING WITH ALL OUR FORCES, even if that wanting has a point that sentences the end:
“If I knew that today was the last time that I was going to see you sleep, I would hug you tightly and pray that I could be the guardian of your soul. If I knew that this was the last time I saw you walk out the door, I would give you a hug, a kiss, and call you back to give you more. If I knew that this was the last time I was going to hear your voice, I would record each of your words so I can hear them over and over again indefinitely. If I knew that these are the last minutes that I see you, I would say “I love you” and would not foolishly assume that you already know.”
There is always tomorrow, and life gives us another chance to do things right but, in case I’m wrong and today is all we have left, I would like to tell you how much I love you, that I will never forget you. Tomorrow is not assured to anyone, young or old. Today may be the last time you see the ones you love. So do not wait any longer, do it today, because if tomorrow never comes, you will surely regret the day that you did not take time for a smile, a hug, a kiss, and that you were too busy to grant them the last wish. Keep those you love close to you, whisper how much you need them, love them and treat them well, take time to say “I’m sorry”, “forgive me”, “please”, “thank you,” and all the words of love that you know. Nobody will remember you for your secret thoughts”.
When Goodbye Hurts, Open Your Eyes And Take The Lesson
There is nothing sadder than goodbye. Because until never is until never, but goodbye is until what? No matter how long love, friendships, or any other type of relationship lasts, they must be based on the expression of feelings, emotions, or thoughts. We mustn’t feel that we have not said what we felt because goodbye is more painful when our pen contains ink. If we don’t use it, it will dry out and probably spoil our writing tool. This is, in other words, that our emotional past will determine our present. So it is important to manage our feelings, emotions, and thoughts according to the moment we have to live. So keep it very present, a goodbye hurts, but the most painful goodbyes are not pronounced, those that leave unfinished business in a golden drawer with multiple corners that can damage our hearts.
