To the girl who cannot let go easily,
You hold onto everything. Whether it be something small like a necklace, a song or even the outfit that you wore on the first date, there's a certain memory to it.
A shirt with his scent on it. Gosh, you remember when he wore it for the first time and you thought to yourself, "Wow, he's so cute."
A certain song that takes you back to a great memory. "Drops of Jupiter" comes on and all you can remember is you two singing at the top of your lungs to the lyrics. Or that weird rap song comes on that he loves and all you can seem to remember is him on the driver's side trying to rap the entire song for you.
A receipt from the first date. You remember him getting so nervous on the first date that he dropped the knife on the ground in front of you and his whole face turned red.
Everything that has an ounce of meaning to it, you have it. While some may find it creepy, it's just who you are. You add sentimental meaning to everything because you're probably a hopeless romantic.
It's okay to hold meaning to little things. But it's more important to know that it's okay to let go.
That shirt that you have of his, give it back. It may hurt to do it, but in a way, it's hurting you more holding onto it.
That song that brings you back to the memory of you two singing, find a new song. Find a new song with someone even greater.
The receipt from the first date you two went on? Throw it away.
Don't feel bad for being who you are but also don't hold onto the hold memories. It's okay to move on and to make new memories. Be the best version of yourself and don't hold back because you're stuck on one small thing. Life is too short.
The girl who decided that letting go was the key to happiness.
