The Older I Get I Realise

The older I get, the more I realise that

  • Love will sometimes look like letting go and moving forward. There’s nothing wrong with needing or wanting to start over when something has run its course.
  • It takes courage to walk away and make a new path. Choosing to do things differently and creating a new way does not make you wrong or a sell-out. It makes room in our lives for bravery and vulnerability.
  • You can love people deeply and still keep them at a distance. I’ve let go of the idea that everybody I love has to be in my space intimately. I am no longer hard on myself for needing firmer boundaries or wanting to take a step back.
  • Love will sometimes looks like choosing myself first.
  • People can part ways without hatred or animosity. Everything isn’t messy. Sometimes it’s not about who is good or bad, wrong or right. Some relationships will just be seasonal, and that is okay.
  • How liberating it is to let go without holding on to grudges, hatred, and resentment.
  • People grow together and apart. There is beauty inn outgrowing and releasing. Everything isn’t a forever thing.

Please add to the list. Would love to know your thoughts.

    The future isn’t as important as it once was. If it is important, it’s probably due to fear.

      Yes I believe the maturity to understand certain things and concepts either comes with age or experience.

    Someone said it, “One day, the person you’ll be in love with will pass away. Maybe, that will be me. Or it’ll be your best friend or your lover. Remember that and remember this, too: you will move on.
    Time might not heal everything, but you’ll teach yourself to live without this love.”

    The older I get, the more wiser I become. I realize that relationships aren’t forced, they’re formed. If it’s true or genuine, it will stand the test of time 💯

  5. Disappointment isn’t Defeat. The strongest are simply those who don’t give up. Forgiveness is the only key to Free…
    And it’s TRULY free,
    Like money from a broken Money Tree
    Or vended from a backwards vending machine.
    Liberating and Literally
    FREE
    Is forgiveness Inter-granted between Yous and Mes.
