Letting Go

Letting go of something you love is one of the hardest things you can ask someone to do . Whether it be a long time relationship, a friendship, a hobby, a habit or a loved one.
On Saturday April 12, 2014 I lost my Aunt. This is one of the hardest things for me to let go and move on from since the death of my Grandmother when I was 12 years old. Every night I go to sleep and every morning when I wake up the first thing on my mind is my Aunt. It hurts to have these feelings everyday and that is why letting go is essential. I have to let go of the pain and regret that I feel. I have to let go of the hope of wanting her to come back. I have let go in order to heal.
I have to also realize that letting go and healing is not going to happen over night. I have to realize that day by day I will slowly let go and I will eventually heal. I will hold onto our memories together and allow those memories to motivate me to continue to push through these hard days.
R.I.P Aunt Mandy , Love you and I shall see you again <3

  1. Counseling does a great deal to ease grief. When I was in college I lost one of my best friends unexpectedly and that was one of the hardest things I have ever had to deal with. I would walk around campus and if I saw someone who looked like her I would get excited to say hi, but then I would realize it couldn't be her. Going to grief counseling helped me to come to terms with her death and move forward.
