At a certain point in our lives, we will have to filter the people we surround ourselves with. In short, we choose who we want to grow old with, and who we want gone forever.
It’s that innate power in each of us to choose what we think will be best for us in the long run, that we give in and surrender.
I remember the first time I realized I had that power. I messed it up and made choices I regretted later on.
But it comes with age- that you master the art of letting go. At a certain point in our lives, we will put up barriers and walls and we will move on. There will always come a time when people you thought you can trust will betray you- and you just have to let them go lest you run the risk of getting betrayed over and over again.
I could not count with my bare hands the number of people I’ve shut down. And on second thought, It’s not really about burning bridges- but about loving myself more than any of them, so as to think of what’s best for me than get the recognition of an unworthy few.
