I think letting go is the hardest thing to do. I don't think I have ever been able to just let go of people I love, even when they've shown me time and again they don't love me. I am doomed to love people who don't return it. ♥

Let go of that thing that hurt you no matter how deeply it cuts, no matter how painful it is to let go. in some way we feel that our resentment is punishing them for the wrong they did, in truth it the rope that binds us, not them, to pain of the past.

There are many ways to calm a negative energy without suppressing or fighting it.... You recognize it ~ you smile to it ~ You invite something nicer to come up ~ replace it ~ You read some inspiring words ~ you listen to a piece of music ~ you go somewhere in Nature ~ or you do Walking Meditation.~ Thich Nhat Hahn
