It's Not Easy But Sometimes I Need to Let Go.

I'm learning to let some things go.  It isn't easy sometimes, knowing when to let go and when to hold on.  Finding the balance between that which does not matter and that which is truly important has taken me a long time to find.  I've even learned to let go of people from my past and accept that I have to live without them.  I know that letting go is not easy, I don't believe it is in our nature to let go of what we want. 

While letting go is almost always a painful process of acceptance and relinquishment I know that in the end I will be a better man for it.

I just lost my father a month ago and right now it feels like a nightmare living through all this ****, but it's something that makes me stronger. People depend on me and I cherish the memories that my dad and I had together. <br />

Good stuff.

I found that writing my own short biography has helped me do the same thing.<br />
it helped me finally bury things that were in my past.<br />
If you're interested in trying the same thing, just be honest, write it to yourself or like i did to any reader that may come across it (i posted mine on my website, it helped me further except the way things were and are)
