Let "IT" Go

Do you ever feel like this?

One of the struggles many people struggle with over the years is the distinguishing differences between the idea of letting go of something, surrendering to it or just settling - for it.

This for many of us is true in all areas of our life but it can be especially true in our relationships. We start every relationship with a dream, a hope and loads of desires that this person will finally be the person that you will develop a long life with, whether it be a intimate or friendly relationship. An ideal principle, someone I believe in.

I am not suggesting that staying in the relationship can not be a continually nurturing and growing process for both people. After 1, 5, or even 10 years if you are still searching to find what' s right or wrong, good or bad, better or worse about a person I think that there comes a time when you just have to "let it go".

I am not saying drop the the person from your life completely; I am simply suggesting however that sooner or later each of us must decide to: let go of something; an expectation, a hope, a desire. We must learn that settling for something is not as bad as it sounds and we must come to the realization that surrender does not imply giving up or giving in - but it means to accept. And once you accept something, the struggle ends.

You are not your relationship and your relationship does not define you. It is just one of the many roles you play in life.
