I watch a lot of my friend struggling with letting go and walking away. I know people have often thought of me as cold and callous, because I possess this almost innate ability to walk away and let go. However, this was not a skill I developed over time. This was something that was thrust upon me repeatedly throughout my life. Being a military brat, I moved and changed schools regularly. We were never in one place for more than a few years. My family didn’t consult me or warn me that we were moving. So, throughout my childhood, I was ripped away from people and places that I loved with no say in my fate.
For many of my adult years, I did try to hold onto people, places, and things that really weren’t good for me. I wanted to establish some sense of permanence. Sadly, more often than not, I was holding on for the wrong reasons. The older I got the less I embraced change. Until one day my entire world changed overnight. I won’t go into the details, as that’s a novella at best, but that day…I made a decision that would forever alter the course of my life and thankfully so.
From that day forward, I was able to embrace what my childhood had taught me to do so many times. Move on. Move forward. Let go. Walk away. And now? When I realize that someone, some place, something is not right for my life in whatever capacity, I think it over and sometimes I fight to stay longer than I should, but once I know its time to go? I don’t walk away. I hop in the car and I DRIVE and I’m not looking back.
