You just have to let go.
Let go of the hands that you love holding on for so long. Those hands that make you feel so warm throughout your body. Those hands that are there to remind you that you are not alone. Those hands that when you hold and interlock your fingers with, it just fits so perfectly you would think they were made for each other. You have to let go of them because the person who owns them just don’t want to be with you anymore. He thinks that your hands are not the ones he wants to hold for the rest of his life and so you have to let go. You have to realize that they are not the right hands to hold. Let go of them and find the ones who would never let go of you.
Let go of the places that you always visit with him. Those places where you made sweet memories together. Those places where you planted that kind of love that you thought was forever. Those places will grow old and wither just like the love he had for you. It would no longer be the same even if you walked through the grounds of the very same garden he expressed his love for you. You have to walk away from it. It is time to visit other places and create new memories. Stop breaking your own heart by always looking back at those places. Let go of them for they also have let gone of your memories.
Let go of those songs that you used to sing with him. Those songs with the perfect lyrics that describe exactly what you felt with each other. Those songs that you played again and again just because they sound too good to stop. Those songs that became the anthem of the love you had together. Stop playing them or better yet, delete them from your playlist for every time you would hear those songs, they would be like a knife that would stab you again and again but you would not die, you would just feel endless pain. So remove those songs and download new ones, download happy ones. Play the kind of songs that would bring you smiles, not tears. It is time to let go of the music you had with him and it is time to learn a new one.
Let go of all the memories you had with him. Those memories that keep on playing inside your head as if a movie that you watched for a million of times. Those memories that you created with him with full delight with the thought that a time would come that you would be narrating those with your children. You won’t. That time will never come. Those memories would just be memories and no matter how many times you replay them inside your head, they would not just come back. They are just written in the pages of your history. So you have to let go of them and create new ones. Spend infinite moments that do not contain tears and pain. Create new ones that are not associated with him because after all, it is your life, not his. It is your right to be happy so create memories full of joy.
Most of all, let go of that person you have loved the most. That person who you think you’re gonna spend the rest of your life with. That person who gave you so much things to remember. That person who taught you the feeling of being in love. He may break your heart into tiny pieces but you also have to consider the fact that what you had with him is something beautiful. It is sad that it didn’t last forever but that is just the way it goes in life. He is not just the right one for you. So you have to let him go so you could both start finding the right ones to love. The right ones to spend happily ever after with. Let go of him and everything would be so much better.
