I think the toughest things I have done in life is let friends and family go. I am a loyal person. It is hard for me to give up on people. I must have been a dog in a past life because I have seen myself stick around too long more than once.
I will tell you that as time has passed I have found it easier to let people go. I think for the longest time I tried to prove I was a good friend. That in a lot of cases resulted in people taking advantage of my loving and giving nature.
In some cases I think I miss the people I wanted them to be more than who they were in real life. I obviously had the ability to romanticize them. It was the hardest with family. I think once I let go of both parents it became much easier to cut people loose, yet it was still a hard decision.
People come in your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime.
It is not always the case that they stay forever. I think the part I recently learned was the figuring it out part. I no longer let people disappoint me constantly or take advantage. I move on. This creates room for better people.
