I hope you find the wisdom to understand why you’re better off without some people and why some people had to leave instead of holding on without really knowing why. I hope you find the strength to let go before you fall. I hope you find the courage to leave before you get lost. I hope you trust the instincts that tell you if something doesn’t feel right or if someone is lying to you. I hope you see people for who they are not who you want them to be.
I hope you know that life is hard but it gets easier when the things that are meant for you fall into place. It gets easier when you don’t try to fight God’s plan or timing. It gets easier when you stop running and stay put. When you learn how to wait because good things take time and good people are hard to find and God won’t make everything easy for you. I hope you know that’s what meant for you will never pass you by.
I hope you understand that if it doesn’t feel right, it probably isn’t. That if you have to force things to happen and lie to yourself and go against your beliefs, then it’s not for you. I hope you don’t get attached to wrong things or temporary things. I hope you understand that your journey doesn’t have to be like anyone else. Your timeline doesn’t have to align with your friends. Your age doesn’t define what you should own or how much you should make or how many kids you should have.
I hope you learn how to let go of the life you wanted and live the one that’s meant for you. Live your journey. Live your own story. I hope you learn how to let go of what’s not yours.
