“For things to reveal themselves to us, we need to be ready to abandon our views about them.”Thich Nhat Hanh
I like to write letters that I don’t plan to send. Crazy, right?
I started working on this idea that I found in a book as a suggestion of self-therapy when a relationship with someone that I cared about was not working. Or it was not what I felt it should be.
A 10-year friendship has recently ended, and while looking around my computer for a personal file, I found a letter that I had completely forgotten about.
I wrote this letter to my friend one year ago, and back then, the reasons why I felt the relationship was not working were exactly the same ones I feel today.
Moments like these are signs that sometimes things shatter for our greater good, but we don’t want to let go of, and we hold on to them for longer than necessary, only to end up in the exact same place that broke our hearts one year ago.
Letting go is a choice. Sometimes the choice is ours to make, sometimes it’s made for us. Either way, embrace the moments of brokenness because they help us shape our path into an even greater version of the one that we walk on today.
