    I release you
    I can't do anything about it
    if you choose to shut me out now
    it's not in my control if
    you behave badly
    your anger is
    something you'll have to deal with
    I can't do it for you
    and I need to
    stop wishing I could
    I release you
    seeing so much of myself
    in you is painful because
    you're gonna have to go
    through it on your own, too
    your past circumstances are
    why you treat me so coldly at times
    but it still hurts and
    I still try to pretend that
    it doesn't
    I release you
    because you're supposed to
    have the wisdom to k now
    the difference between what can
    be changed and what can't
    but they didn't say anything about
    peace of mind in that, did they
    absence makes the days go longer
    I couldn't get anymore fonder
    or empty inside
    I release you
    and in doing so I
    try to set myself free
    it is hard to
    leave it up to god
    painful to let go
    because ultimately we
    never know
    I pray for peace, quiet
    and feeling complete

    Sometimes in letting go, you will see what is truly meant to be. There was a sadness in this, but also I felt confidence in doing the right thing. This was on point.

    Learning to let go is one of the most difficult things I've ever had to do...
    thing is...I've never seem to become acclimated to the process...no matter
    how many times I'm faced with situations of release...it's always difficult or
    even painful...but I can say, I made it...I survived it...and I woke up breathing...

    Strength and courage be yours Sister :spinstar:
    I'm feeling your words...

    I knew you'd feel me, if no one else did, angelicsage. Thank you, sister, and much love.

    deepy, you are so right. Thanks for the love and the words.

    you are blessed with the wonderful gift of extracting empathy with your words.
    its like i could feel what you were saying.
    that's special...

    just one quick thought here:

    the only way we truly enjoy ourselves
    the only way we ever experience delight and pleasure
    the only way we ever know how wonderful joy can be

    is because of pain...we all gotta go through some...it just makes you stronger

    and oh yeah, you're doing the right thing...Releasing
