Your Destiny Is Not Tied To Anyone That Left

Love Liz Gilbert..  SG x

Dear Ones –

It’s Sunday morning. Let’s go to church.

I LOVE this short but powerful video about letting people go.

We all need to learn this — what Jakes calls “the gift of goodbye.”

Because we’ve all had people in our life who left us behind.

Maybe they left without an explanation, or maybe they left with an insufficient explanation, or maybe they left in a cloud of lies and pain.

Maybe it was a family member, maybe it was a lover, maybe it was a friend.

Maybe you ran after them, begging them to stay.

Maybe you’re still calling them in the middle of the night, trying to convince them to come back.

Maybe you’re working on that next ten-page letter — that last effort to save the relationship (despite the fact that none of the other ten-page letters worked.)

Maybe you’re still begging.

(You think I’m judging you? Hell, no! I’m speaking for myself here, too. I’m not gonna name names, but let’s just put it this way: I am not unfamiliar with the act of begging people to stay. You don’t think I can write a ten-page letter trying to save a doomed relationship? Trust me: I CAN WRITE A TEN-PAGE LETTER.)

But Bishop Jakes has it correct here: If anyone can walk out of your life, you LET THEM WALK.

Your destiny is not tied to anyone who is able to walk out on you.

  1. Right on sister! I’ve had a few abusive rejoiners batted my way when exes left. I see now I should never have taken their words on board. Someone who wants to leave should be let go. I have clung on and caused so much more damage to myself by not letting go gracefully in the past. Those who really love you will come back and if they need to walk its not up to us to hold them. Excellent message.

    • Yeah.. I noticed that too. Obviously it happens to us all. It’s happened to me too much :o( often I do the goodbyes as we grow apart and are not a match anymore. Hard because you always love the people but often they are on a different path. It’s not as hard as it used to be. There is an old saying “if you’re not losing friends you’re not growing”:o( It’s very relevant to those on the ‘having to heal’ path..
