Sometimes, no matter how hard you try to get over something, it just clings to you…like a piece of glitter. Just when you think you’ve finally completely removed it from your life…BAM! 2 weeks, 2 months, 2 years later…there it is. The fucking glitter. Seriously, why? Why is it back?? WHY?!
Been feeling a bit stagnant lately. As a result, things that I thought I’d already come to terms with are starting to rear their not-so-ugly head again….the fucking glitter. And, I’ve never been more aware of the fact that the only real way to move on…is to just NOT BE where you are now. It’s so ridiculously simple. But you know how we humans roll. We like to complicate things.
To truly move on, we have to to move forward, but moving forward means making change, and, let’s be real, change can be scary as fuck.
When it comes down to it, what is it that’s really keeping us from moving on – the fear of losing what we had or the fear of losing who we are?
How much easier would it be to move on if we knew that we could let go of something and still be the same person at the end of it all?
Wait, why would you WANT to be the same person at the end of it all?
I think what really keeps us from moving on is the realization that we’ll never be that person again, the fear that we’ll change in a way we won’t like. We’re scared maybe we’ll grow cynical, grow old. We’re scared we’ll change in a a million ways but the one way we think we should. We convince ourselves that the familiar discomfort of where we are is better than the unfamiliar potential of where we could be.
We get ok with being comfortably uncomfortable. Like I said, we like to complicate things.
The thing is change is going to happen anyway. And clinging to something or someone that we need to let go as a means of avoiding said inevitable change…well, that’s just exhausting.
So, maybe it’s time to just let it go, yeah? Time to stop being comfortable with the uncomfortable, and start being comfortable with the unknown. It is Monday after all.
