Have you ever felt yourself get tired or bored with a certain relationship or friendship? If so, you aren’t the only one, and it doesn’t make you a bad person. I am pretty guilty of this myself. I start to get irritated by simple things and it only goes downhill from there. Once I feel exhausted towards a certain person or activity, it is like they start to symbolically weigh me down.
This is where the art of moving on comes in. Letting go of the past and the people in it is only the beginning of your new found future. It is said that God removes people out of your life that no longer serve a purpose to you. Everyone we meet is put in our life for a specific reason and sometimes they do not stick around after the lesson is taught. Even if you feel as though it is your fault, maybe it is for the best.
I have been struggling with this myself; I have an ugly habit of cutting off all forms of communication with that person and just wiping my hands clean. We could be friends for multiple years and one day out of the blue, I can literally be done with the entire relationship. This happens often in my life, which makes me think there may be something wrong with me. Maybe I am just being a shrewd and will end up living alone with 52 cats… Seems pretty appropriate and realistic to me. However, at least I will be a weight-free shrewd.
Moving on is probably one of the healthiest things we could do for ourselves. Harboring too many emotional experiences (especially sad ones) can lead to physical or mental health issues. Of course, it is easier said than done, but it is kind of like jumping in cold water. You just have to dive in all at once. Afterwards, you could possibly feel like a brand new person without the extra baggage you once felt. Get rid of those negative toxins that cloud up your daily mood.
“It happens to everyone as they grow up. You find out who you are and what you want, and then you realize that people you’ve known forever don’t see things the way you do. So you keep the wonderful memories, but find yourself moving on.” – Nicholas Sparks
