So you have a friend, significant other or relative, who, frankly, is just not great for you. They take a lot from you emotionally and physically, but you have the need to keep giving because you care so much.

One of the hardest parts of life is realizing when to let go. Often attributed to giving up, letting go is not that you did not try. It is moving on and knowing that you gave 200 percent to a lost battle.

When letting go, in its wake you can have grief, relief, pain and a variety of separated emotions. It is absolutely terrifying. Unlike a cause and effect where you have no control, you are pushing forward; you are the catalyst. But it makes you stronger because you are telling yourself that you deserve more. You have the power to accept what you deserve and not settle for less.

Helen Keller once said, “Your success and happiness lies in you. Resolve to keep happy, and your joy and you shall form an invincible host against difficulties.”

Obstacles are hard, especially when they come in the form of someone close, but we have to remember that even though we mean well, sometimes things cannot be fixed or resolved. Settling for something that will not change is unfair to the person you could become. Do not hold back because you are afraid there is nothing ahead of you. Trust me; life has better things in store.
