Leave your things behind
‘Cause it’s all going off without you
Excuse me too busy you’re writing your tragedy
When you’ve no idea what you’re like
So, let go, let go
Oh well, what you waiting for?
It’s all right
‘Cause there’s beauty in the breakdown
We’re scared. We’re so scared.
Scared to fight, to lose, to fall, to break, to start, to finish, to try, to cry, to feel, to reveal, to share, to compare, to love, to not love, to risk, to compromise, to cherish, to remember, to forget…
We live in constant fear of failing at everything. We hold on to memories, get stuck by past tragedies.
Until you heal the wounds of your past, you are going to bleed. You can bandage the bleeding with food, with alcohol, with drugs, with work, with cigarettes, with sex; But eventually, it will all ooze through and stain your life. You must find the strength to open the wounds, Stick your hands inside, pull out the core of the pain that is holding you in your past, the memories and make peace with them
– Iyanla Vanzant
So let go… Just let it go. Take a step forward. Even if you fall, even if you have to crawl… keep going. You will eventually, once again, stand tall.
