I let my emotions rule me a lot of the time. It's one of the things I dislike about myself. Joe says that's the part of me that makes me a kind, compassionate person.
I don't care. I wish I didn't feel things so much. I wish I didn't take things so personally.
I especially find it hard to let things go if I have been hurt(emotionally) in any way. I have a hard time trusting people, so when that trust is broken I find it hard to let go of the pain of it having been broken.
I cried on my way home about something that happened quite some time ago. Like 5 years ago. I thought I had gotten over it. I was sure I had gotten over it, as it isn't something I think about anymore, or have in a long while.
But then something happened, out of the blue, and there I am, crying in my car on my way home about it.
I'm just looking for some closure, but I don't know how to come about it.
I saw this drawing on Pinterest and I love it. It speaks to me somehow.
I want to be the girl in that drawing. I want to rise above the things that cause me hurt. I want to be able to let them go, and not feel the hurt over and over again by a simple act on someone else's part.
I just wish I could figure out how.
Joe says I shouldn't let these things bother me. If someone doesn't want to be in my life it's their loss because I am an awesome person and anyone would be lucky to have me as a friend. He always knows exactly the right thing to say to make me feel better. Now if he could only get me to believe it :)
Do any of you have this problem too? How do you let things go?
