Letting Go Is Good

Letting Go Is Good

Sometimes you have to let go to be happy even if it's hard

“We can't be afraid of change. You may feel very secure in the pond that you are in, but if you never venture out of it, you will never know that there is such a thing as an ocean, a sea. Holding onto something that is good for you now, may be the very reason why you don't have something better.”

― C. JoyBell C.

Let me just start off by saying that I bet there isn't a single soul on this planet that wouldn't agree that change is good. That sometimes change can be refreshinging. Or that change is the reason why they are happier. Sometimes change involves letting go. Also sometimes we have to let go of whats killing us, even if it's killing us to let go! Believe me when I say it's hard, but it also does get easier with time. I was never a big fan of letting go because I feared the pain that would usually follow shortly after. Wether it be letting go of a job, friendship, or a relationship. Sometimes you have to get up and face your fears no matter if it hurts you and the other people invovled.

I recently let go of a relationship that almost lasted 3 years. Now thats a long time. That's alot of dates, alot of family holidays, and alot of road trips to let go of. Alot of good morning hugs, kisses, and goodbyes. When I tell you it hurt, believe me it hurt so bad. Sometimes letting go of someone you love is the hardest. At the same time though letting go might make you happier. That's just it though, life is all about your happiness, your wealth, and the way you view things. If you base yourself off of others happiness, what does that do for you. Nothing, absolutley nothing. Believe me when I tell you, you need to focus on yourself first before anyone or anything else. Be young, have fun, make mistakes, and if you find your happiness along the way then that's amazing.

Sometimes all you really need in life is a fresh start. Take the step and change if you are not happy the way you are, you'll see a big difference in your life. The sun will begin to shine a little brighter, the grass will appear a little more greener, and your obstacles become less harder to achieve. You'll wake up and smell the flowers like you've never smelt them before, and the fresh air will seem a little fresher. When you're happy all the things that once seemed dark and gloomy are now bright and cheery. Change yourself for the better and be a happier person. Life is so much better on the sunny side.

10 Screenshots Every Woman In Your Life Is Taking And Sending To Her Friends, Like It Or Not

"WTF do I reply?!"

1. The "WTF Do I Reply??"

You'll need all the group chat and friend power you can get to figure out how to reply to a tricky text*.

*Tricky texts can be anything from a long paragraph from an S.O to a "Hey what's up?" from someone you like.

2. The Gossip From A Mutual Friend.

When you get that really good tea, you just have to share it with your other friends.

3. The FBI Evidence.

You might be wondering what someone you know is up to, or if your friend is still together with their S.O, or if that girl on your crush's Instagram is his girlfriend or just a friend. In these times, you and the rest of your group chat will become FBI agents, exchanging screenshots like evidence.

4. The "OMG: Did You See What He/She Just Did??"

That person you hate from class or work you hate posted a super weird photo on Instagram. Your favorite celeb just posted a really shady tweet. Your friend unfollowed her or his (ex??) significant other on Instagram. That cute person you like updated his or her profile pic.

5. The Drunk Texts.

You'll need these receipts to embarrass your friends later.

6. The "Look How Cute My Bae Is"

When you're in the honeymoon stage of your new relationship, you might want to subtly brag to your friends about how good it's going by sharing your cute exchanges.

7. The DMs.

Ah, those cringe-worthy DMs from guys you don't really know (and don't really want to get to know), or the guys you want to forget but are slowly creeping back into your life, one DM at a time. You'll have to send screenshots of these to your friends so more people can contribute a "WTF" to the situation.

8. The Fight.

You'll be having a fight with your significant other, another friend, or your mom, and you'll (definitely) need a friend's opinion on how to respond, or just to vent.

9. The Crazy Texts.

You can't believe what that person just sent you. So you have to screenshot and send it to your friends, so you can ALL revel in the absurdness of the text.

10. The Memes.

10 Simple Steps To Live The Best Days Of Your Life

You have to practice happiness- it’s a skill you can learn to apply to your own life.

We all want to make the most out of the life we’re living. Believing that each day will be a good day might be hard at times- and sometimes we might lose our hope or sight of the future. Here are a few steps to encourage how to have a positive mindset and express happiness every single day.

1. Remember to get enough sleep.

Your body is a machine, and it still needs time to rest and recover from working hard. You’ll feel energized after getting the appropriate amount of sleep.

2. Wake up earlier.

The more time you have, the more opportunities are in store for you. Get ready to seize the day!

3. Have a positive mindset.

Being optimistic and hopeful about the unknown future will help you handle any challenges that come your way. No matter what happens, things will get better.

4. Eat right.

Getting the nutrition you need will allow you to not be as groggy, and will give you energy to keep going throughout the day.

5. Stay fit with exercise.

If you look good, you’ll feel good. Staying fit will help increase your stamina and can help you relieve stress.

6. Accomplish any small achievable goal.

You’ll feel better about yourself once you achieve even the smallest of goals. The more you accomplish, the better you’ll feel about your work ethic and time management skills.

7. Take time to do something you love.

Treat yourself for being awesome. You can reward yourself by watching TV, reading a book, listening to music, dancing in your room like nobody's watching, taking a nap, or just playing with your favorite pet.

8. Spend time with the people you love.

Your friends and family want what is best for you and will always be there to support you. They will be there for you when you want to go on an adventure, laugh throughout the night, or really just need a shoulder to cry on.

9. Do a good deed.

Helping others in any way will make you feel good, especially since you know that you have positively impacted someone’s life for the better.

10. Repeat the steps listed above.

Keep trying to stick with this healthy lifestyle change, and in time, you will be happier each day.

“Happiness is not a goal… it’s a by product of a life well lived.” – Eleanor Roosevelt
