Exhale – Release -Let It Go

This is a dedication.

Not to anyone in particular but a certain group of people.

These people here – they just harbor their feelings and emotions. Something bad happens and they internalize it and this “thing” eventually eats them up one bite at a time. They never learn to let “it” go. You know when people call me for advice, this is probably one of the most common statements that come out of my mouth. Just let it go. I think I say this at least 75% of the time. Why bother?

But Fresh, I need closure. Closure. You know what? Get closure as soon as possible. Not 5-10-15 years later. And realize this. Sometimes, it’s not always talking to the person that did you wrong to bring closure. Closure begins with you. Yourself. Closure is accepting that you will no longer allow “it” to bother you and direct your life any longer. It will no longer consume your thoughts. That’s how closure begins. It has NOTHING to do with you picking up the phone and telling said person how you feel.

Do you let bad food stay in your body for 5-10-15 years? No. Your stomach says “aww hell nah, this isn’t good for me” and it comes out through some hole. So why let bad emotions linger? Next comes stress, next comes some self made ailment that really doesn’t exist but you’ve convinced your mind that your sick. Crazy right? Tell me it’s never happened though…..

He/she broke up with you? F*ck it. Their loss. Move on. Let it go.
