I never understood the saying "If you love someone, let them go." It always baffled me. Why would you want to let someone go if you love them? That isn't what love is about. Little did I know, I had no clue what love was about. But I understand now. I've loved plenty of people in my life and have let them go. I still love them but I let go. It's about wanting to see them happy, even if you're not the one to make them happy anymore. It's about wanting the best for them in their life even if that doesn't include you. It's understanding that you will never be apart of their life and accepting it. It's accepting change. I'm the type of girl who fights nail and tooth to hold onto people, places, things. Even if it's served it's purpose and isn't beneficial to me anymore. That's been my hardest journey in life..is letting go. But I think I finally understand and have come to terms with it. I still love the people I love, and I always will. But I finally accept it is best to set them free. Because I love them.
