Letting Go and Moving On

Sometimes things happen out of the blue and you end up losing baggage that you didn’t even know that you had.  You know what I’m talking about….that feeling of “ahhhh” and “what the heck just happened?” all at the same time.  The same happened to me recently and I’m still not quite sure what happened, but I’m very glad that it did.  It’s a confusing state of thoughts and emotions.

What’s interesting is that this event caused me to take a long look at my life and it helped me to realize that I’m living a lie.  I’ve been doing a disservice to myself and to everyone else by being fake and trying to be unlovable in order to keep people away from me.  Basically I tried to made sure people didn’t like me on my terms instead of on their terms.  What a miserable way to live, let me tell you.  So not only did I lose the baggage that I mentioned above, but it’s time to lose the baggage of the lies that I’m living.

I don’t know if anyone else is going through something like my own self-realization, but maybe one single person out there is.  And maybe one single person out there needs to hear this:  it’s okay.  It’s okay to finally let go and live and be who you’re meant to be.  If people don’t like the real and true you then they’re not really worth being in your life anyway.  As Oprah Winfrey says, “Surround yourself with only people who are going to lift you higher.”  Here’s to you and me, my friend.
