There comes a time when you can let go of things. Writing has always been a great means to frame feelings up. Poems or prose that others may identify with. We are not alone in our experiences. I am going through mine to let go of them. That is the only way to move forward. I seek happiness and a new path. I love that I feel lighter, and at peace. I can’t change the words and actions of others. I can see it for what it is. No matter what we say or do we are responsible for it, accountable. That is as true for me as anyone who has affected me. Whatever allowed them their thoughts and actions. Living with the results of what others have as realities? Nothing we can control. And no one should spend a lifetime in taking a higher road or spend a lifetime defending themselves to entrenched people who put their own blinders on. They would not want the experience themselves that they have turned away from. Turning away from serious situations when someone needs you. Unthinkable, especially family. Embracing the abuser? Unthinkable too! When we turn away from helping someone we leave them affected. This can include children that are loved. It can mean a life of being made less of.
To survive such hurt means you need to find your courage, and strength to be all you can be. You need to love who you are. And figure out how to let go of things. I means there is a need to feel your feelings and let them have their place. It’s not easy. In this life, people do whatever they do according to what they believe. They do according to what they understand as so. They are in that time on their own learning curve. We all affect one another. The unthinking people we have in our lives are still responsible for their own words and actions. So are we all. It is not a good thing, to not think before you take action. Whatever your decision is never do what you can’t live with. In my case, I had to live with what others did. There was no help, and the help I sought failed me. It’s many years later now. And whatever time I have left to live, I set boundaries years ago but sometimes you need to reset them with the maturity you now have.
