Holding On and Letting Go

I should have posted this last friday, June 12, Araw ng Kalayaan.

People are always changing  at sa pakikipag-relasyon o kahit sa pagkakaibigan minsan we simply outgrow them for various reasons. Andun yung pag gising mo isang umaga  na-realize mo na lang that both of you are not on the same page anymore.

What some people don’t understand is that relationships/friendships are based on trust, loyalty, and communication. Pag nawala ang isa diyan then it is deemed that it’s almost over. Kung magpapatuloy man, parang ampaw na lang … walang bigat, sigla at mababa na ang value.

Hmmn…enways, mula nung Friday, binigyan ko na ng kalayaan ang sarili ko sa something na dapat noon ko pa pinalaya. Hindi naman siguro masama if i try to be a bit unemotional…for I have realized, being too emotional about not letting go of things, makes me feel cringed.

letting go

The greatest irony of love is letting go when you need to hold on and holding on when you need to let go.
We lose someone we love only when we are destined to find someone else who can love us even more than we can love ourselves.
When you think of your past love, you may view it as a failure.
But when you find a new love, you view the past as a teacher.

In the game of love, it doesn’t really matter who won or who lost.
What is important is you know when to hold on and when to let go.
You know you really love someone when you want him or her to be happy, even if his or her happiness means that you’re not part of it.
Everything happens for the best.

Love strives in hurting.
If you don’t get hurt, you don’t learn how to love.
Love is like a knife.
It can stab the heart or it can carve wonderful images into the soul that always lasts for a lifetime.

Love is supposed to be the most wonderful feeling.
It should inspire you and give you joy and strength.
But sometimes the things that give you joy can also hurt you in the end.
Loving people means giving them the freedom that they choose to be and where they choose to be.

Loving someone means giving him the freedom to find his way, whether it leads towards you or away from you.
Only love can hurt your heart, fill you with desire and tear you apart.
Only love can make you cry and only love knows why.
If you’re not ready to cry, if you’re not ready to take the risk,
if you’re not ready to feel the pain, then you’re not ready to fall in love.

  1. Letting go is difficult at first. However, time heals any wound. You might still see the scar but time will come when you will not even remember the feeling anymore. Be strong and hang in there. When you let go, you embrace freedom, you embrace your self!

  2. Whoever made this blog post, thank you so much. This post made me feel better. Now, I am totally willing to let go of the one I love and start building my new life without her. A lot of thanks to whoever made this.

  3. Letting go… sobrang hirap lalo na sa situation ko na may anak kame and still leaving in thier house even with out him… magulo d b?
    ganito kase un, we are lived-in partner, we have a son and nakikitira kame sa bahay ng nanay nya ksama yung 2 brother nya and asawa ng isa nyang brother.
    no choice ako kundi mag stay sa kanila kase la kameng pupuntahan ng anak ko. umalis xa sa bahay nila at iniwan kameng mag ina.
    mahirap pero kelangan kong magtiis, pero gang kelan ako magtitiis?
    do i really have to be martir? do i have to let him go?
    pano anak ko?
