I've always known I had the gift of adapting to a situation easily. Letting go of something or someone I know I don't deserve or supposed to have, moving on and raising to God all my cares, worries and pain. I can easily get past a broken relationship. I cry for a few days and I'm up and smiling again. It's not that these relationships didn't mean a lot to me. I have long relationships that spanned years, and each one of them were meaningful and special. Maybe I just had quite a great mechanism in me that I could just turn on whenever I need to get over something. I call it the art of letting go-- mind conditioning and positive thinking. Through that I have saved myself from a lot of pain. I figured, if this is something that God doesn't want me to have, why bother myself of insisting on getting on with it? I respect His decision with the confidence that He knows what's best for me. I'm happier and more content this way. How about you? How do you let go and move on?

it's never easy to let go and just move on. actually, letting go and breaking up is even easier than the idea of moving on in life after the "letting go" process. i do let go if one relationship isn't working anymore. but i say, before i let go, i still try to give it a chance many times than one. then after sometime, realizing that it won't really work, it's the time i give up and let go of that situation or certain person. it hurts a lot. just like you, i cry for many days or even weeks or months. i let it all go out of my system through my tears. but one thing is for sure, after those crying moments, it's the time when i get intouch with my inner self and take time to reminisce and learn the lessons i got through the hurtful experience. then, with the learnings i got, i am stronger and i can get up again... back on track as ever before. it's on how we look at things. i look at every situation positively even if it hurts a lot at first.

It's really hard, but it can be done, right? I feel for those who can't handle these experiences and resort to hurting themselves more, or worse, ending their lives. People must learn how to cope and hope, otherwise they lose themselves. Thanks for sharing. :)
