I’m Now Learning To Let Go Of The Things That No Longer Add Value To My Life

Think of your life as some kind of hard drive. You’re going to have limited storage. But there is always going to be room for you to keep a few things that are worth holding on to. And I’ve learned that in my life, I can’t keep hold of everything that I encounter or experience. I’ve learned that I need to be able to let some things go if I’m going to make room for new people and experiences to come in. Up until this point, I have never really been good at saying goodbye.

I have never really been good at detaching myself from things or people that I grow accustomed to. I have never really been one who has been known to just detach myself whenever I want. In the past, I was always so good at holding on; even to the things that weren’t really worth holding on to. And that’s how I know I’m starting to grow as a human being. I’m slowly starting to mature because I’m gradually letting go of the things that are no longer worth holding on to. I know that I’m becoming who I’m meant to be because I’m walking away from who I used to be.

I’ve reached a point in my life wherein I’m letting go of the people who don’t necessarily do anything to get me where I need to be. Not that I see people as mere tools to help add value to my life. But I know that there are just certain kinds of people who can hold others back; and I don’t want to be holding on to people who are only going to keep me from being who I need to be. I know that I have a certain set of standards for myself. There are certain expectations that I set for my own life; and I can only ever really surround myself with the people who will help me meet those expectations.

I’m slowly letting go of all the people who doubt me and make me think like I’m not worthy of all the things that I want for myself. I’m letting go of all the people who don’t believe in me; the ones who want me to stay where I am because they would get too jealous if I start to find success in my life. I’m letting go of the arrogant people who are all talk, but no action. I don’t want to be infected with that kind of personality. I’m letting go of the selfish people; the ones who are only ever really looking out for themselves. I don’t want to have to make space in my life for people who wouldn’t be willing to make space for me. I’m letting go of the people who broke my heart – and I’m letting go of all of those memories, but I’m choosing to keep all of the lessons.

They served a purpose in my life; but that doesn’t mean that I need to save space for them moving into the future. I’m letting go of all of the people who just continue to feed into my insecurities; the ones who try to convince me that I’m not deserving of the finer things in life. I’m letting go of the people who are ruthless; the ones who would willingly step on the lives of others just so they can get ahead. To these pretentious, selfish, arrogant, toxic people, I’m saying goodbye.

I’m letting go of all the toxic mindsets that I have been holding on to for the longest time now.  I’m letting go of all of my insecurities that have been holding me back. I’m letting go of all the fears that have crippled me into passivity and inaction. I’m letting go of all of my learned helplessness; I know now that I need to start believing in myself more. I’ve learned that I need to have my own back because at the end of the day, I’m the only person that I can truly rely on. I’m letting go of my reluctance to open myself up to new experience. I’m letting go of my close-mindedness. I know that real growth happens outside of the comfort zone. I’ve learned that real development takes place when I choose to go beyond what I already know. So, I’m learning to let go of my dogmatic beliefs.

And by letting go of all of these things, I’m making space for new and more exciting aspects of life. I’m making space for a new way of living. I’m making space for a better version of myself. And I can’t wait to see how light the load is going to be once I let go of all the things that no longer add value to my life.
