Letting go can suck for a few reasons; time and energy invested, the fairytale you told yourself, or a sense of incompleteness. Whatever the issue of your heart, it is imperative that when Spirit says let go, you open up your hand and release what's in your grasp.
How you know you are holding on?
What if statements are always telling. If you are still wondering what if this would have been that way, or if only we would have done such and such - 9 times out of 10 you are holding on to a past relationship. Other clues, are your emotional response to a person, place, or thing. Discover who and/or what you are holding on to. Understanding the why is often very helpful in letting go of an old thing.
This subject is one for the ages. But what remains true in love is that it liberates. It sets those embraced by it free. It elevates. At times we are not operating in love; this can be hard to digest. It takes transparency and honest with self and your partner to admit this truth. However, freedom is in this understanding - making it much easier to let go.
The Art of Letting Go
Releasing a person from a "romantic" relationship should be done in love; not anger, bitterness or even with a sense of loss. Part of the hardship in letting go is unforgiveness, the other is not fully knowing the future. Unforgiveness is evidence that you are still holding on. So no matter what you say or even if you have physically separated, your heart is still suspended in a past state. And you should never fear the unknown so much that you stay in a relationship that isn't yours.
Understand this, the letting go takes place in the form of peace within your heart. #selah
