Realize You Let Go of the Wrong Person for You

As Mariah Carey so eloquently sings, “Letting go ain’t easy. It’s just exceedingly hurtful.” Letting go is indeed hurtful. It’s actually hard as hell! But do you know what’s worse? Blocking your next blessing by holding onto someone who isn’t meant to fit into the puzzle of your life. Staying locked into a past that doesn’t exist to you anymore prevents you from allowing the right people to enter. Be thankful for that person who walked away or the door that closed behind you and look forward to what awaits.
