Set Yourself Free

Dear Someone,

This letter is for you. You that’s looking for strength to get through whatever it is that’s causing you so much internal conflict. You that’s thinking you’ve already lost what you truly loved and nothing is left for you. You that doesn’t know why you are still hoping. You that want to get away from everything for a while but you can’t. You that’s asking yourself if only things could go back to how they used to be. You that have millions of tears to cry, but you have chosen to smile. You that’s blaming yourself for exaggerating your place in their lives. You that’s wishing happiness was permanent. You that’s having a hopeless crush on someone you have no chance with. You that’s still hoping its you and them in the end. I’m sending you this letter of hope to remind you that you are too young to be this sad.

It’s not true that you cannot live without them, it is because you don’t want to move on with your life. Stop breaking bread with someone that hasn’t starved with you. Stop wasting your time with someone who doesn’t believe in you and what you are to them, who doesn’t care to try, who doesn’t want to be loved fully, completely, and deeply by you. Set yourself free today and decide that you are good for you. Strength is when you have so much to cry for but you prefer to smile instead.

Stop reopening your doors for toxic people and calling it seeking closure. LET IT GO!! Stop trying to pull back into your past and into that blessed mess when God would have you move forward into the life He has prepared for you. You are better than this relationship you are fighting God and everyone to keep. You are too good for this mess they have put you in. You don’t deserve a halfway kind of love. You don’t deserve uncertainty and you certainly should be more than just someone’s back up safety plan. Don’t be their comfort zone if all you get from them is silent hell and an atmosphere of chaos.

I know you have days when you’re filled with doubts, wondering if this is the right thing to do, worrying if you’re not doing enough, or if you’re doing too much. It’s okay to feel that way. Relationships are like glass. Sometimes it’s better to leave them broken than to hurt yourself trying to put them back together. And in life, you will have to break sometimes before you can fully become. It doesn’t matter if your situation is telling you, “this is the end of the road for you”, it’s a lie! You must realize that what’s looking bad today can be a blessing to you tomorrow. Nothing is ever as it seems. One day you will wake up and realise that you were always the key to healing your own heart.

Until tomorrow, you must remember that it’s only when you stop chasing the wrong things, that you give the right things a chance to catch you. So don’t ever be ashamed about your journey! Don’t be ashamed to put your trust in God. Don’t be ashamed to move on with your life, but do it for yourself. Do it because it’s what’s best for you. Do it so that you can heal. Do it to prove to yourself that you’re worth saving. Do it because you deserve better. Do it to find happiness. Do it because they don’t deserve you. Do it and never look back no matter what.

In His Grip,
~Ali Papa.
