Holding On or Letting Go

Sometimes it may be hard to determine whether to stay in a relationship or to let go.

I am one of those people who doesn’t give up easily and I will try harder to improve a relationship and make it work before moving on.
Because of this, in my past, I have stayed in some toxic relationships way too long.
Here is an assignment that my therapist gave me:
  • Make a list of all the things you did to make him happy.
  • Make a list of all the things he did to make you happy.
  • Make a list of all the things you forgave him for in order to maintain the relationship.
  • Make a list of all the things he forgave you for in order to maintain the relationship.
This assignment really put things into perspective about how much I was giving and how very little I received in return. 
It was helpful in letting go.

    1. Thank you.

      I had some recent inquiries about how to let go, so I decided to share some of the things that worked for me.

      Currently, I am in the process of giving back to myself.

      I look forward to reading more of your poems.
