There are people who can walk away from you.
And hear me when I tell you this! When people can walk Away from you: let them walk. I don't want you to try to talk another person into staying with you, loving you, calling you, caring about you, coming to see you, staying attached to you. I mean hang up the phone.
When people can walk away from you let them walk. Your destiny is never tied to anybody that left.
The bible said that, they came out from us that it might be made manifest that they were not for us. For had they been of us, no doubt they would have continued with us.
[1 John 2:19]
People leave you because they are not joined to you. And if they are not joined to you, you can't make them stay.
Let them go.
And it doesn't mean that they are a bad person it just means that their part in the story is over. And you've got to know when people's part in your story is over so that you don't keep trying to raise the dead. You've got to know when it's dead.
You've got to know when it's over. Let me tell you something. I've got the gift of good-bye. It's the tenth spiritual gift, I believe in good-bye. It's not that I'm hateful, it's that I'm faithful, and I know whatever God means for me to have He'll give it to me. And if it takes too much sweat I don't need it. Stop begging people to stay.
Let them go!!

You know you'll be okay. I've been in that spot when I was forced to take steps/make moves that I wasn't very happy and secure to make. But each time it has worked out beautifully, and in most cases it's been a blessing in disguise. We just have to keep an open heart and mind, don't we, and, again, that's not always so easy to do. It takes a lot of work and a lot of faith.

Your advice is right on target. Sometimes it is difficult to let go, but
we need to learn to accept it as part of
our living.

Oooooh so true, and great advice! The person you hurt by not letting go is YOU. It can make you physically ill, not to mention drive you insane, to try to hold on to things that should just be accepted and turned loose. You can never move forward until you do that. It is good advice, but at the same time so difficult to do. "Let go and let God.."
