An Open Letter to My Friend
My dear friend:
Sometimes being a friend means mastering the art of timing.
There is a time for silence.
A time to let go and allow people to hurl themselves into their own destiny.
And a time to prepare to pick up the pieces when it’s all over.
Sometimes you have to let go to see if there was anything worth holding on to.
Don’t cling to something lousy when you could have something great.
A sad thing in life is that sometimes you meet someone who means a lot to you only to find out in the end that it was never bound to be and you just have to let go.
There are things that we never want to let go of, people we never want to leave behind.
But keep in mind that letting go isn’t the end of the world, it’s the beginning of a new life.
Hold a friend’s hand through times of trial, let them find love through a hug and a smile; but also know when it is time to let go-for every one of us must learn to grow.
Only by letting go of the life we planned for ourselves can we accept the one that is waiting for us. Sincere forgiveness isn’t colored with expectations that the other person apologize or change. Don’t worry whether or not they finally understand you. Love them and release them. Life feeds back truth to people in its own way and time.
Being happy doesn’t mean that everything is perfect.
It means that you’ve decided to look beyond the imperfections.
Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending.
My dear friend:
I Forgive And Release You
Mi’iwi (that’s all.)
