You know why letting go hurts so much? It’s because you have to make a choice. You’re in a dire situation to make the choice of throwing away a person who became a part of you. You’re putting away a piece of you and keeping it in the past. That piece of you will not be present in your future. It won’t be a part of you any longer. The only thing you’ll carry with you are the memories of that dear piece that meant more than life itself. It was your happiness, it was your everything. Now you have to imagine life without it and honestly, why would you make this choice knowing it will only hurt again? Well you make this choice because you know you’re hurting at the moment. This pain has brought you nothing but melancholy and despair. This pain hurts more than the pain that will come after making the choice. This wound has brought more pain than the one that comes in the process of healing. This pain is permanent and the only way you can truly make it go is if you CHOOSE to feel the pain of letting go. If you choose to let go, if you choose to heal yourself from the pain you’re feeling right now, then you must make the decision of putting yourself through a little more pain by letting him go. Let him live his life, let yourself detach from him, let him out and never let him back in. Go live your life. Live everyday without him because your life continues without him. It will hurt no matter what, just know that the pain you’re feeling right now is much worse than the pain you’ll feel when you’ve already let him go. Choose wisely. Choose to let him go once and for all.
