Of course it will hurt.
Your pain is real and justified.
He used you. She lied to you. They ignored you.
And they’ll never know how much pain you felt.
Only you will.
Because you’re still holding on to the memory
while they carry on with their lives.
And you have no choice but to let go.
Hard as it may seem, it’s necessary.
Easy to say, hard to do.
But once done, you’re free.
To move on and embrace a new path.
Try it. Let go a little at a time. Or let it all go.
