What is important is moving on to your happiest life possible. It takes great strength to let go of the ugly people and their odious and vile words, actions and deeds, for in the end they are the ones who will be hurt, not you. We learn to accept the things we cannot change, and come to realize that letting go can be a beginning. Part of being a winner and the best person you can be is knowing when to say enough is enough. And let go and move on.
Charles Dickens wrote, "Life is made of ever so many partings welded together." Some we are eager to see vanish and some we endure with great sorrow. But to me it is in the welding together that we discover who we are and just what we are made of.
As a friend wrote, "Did you know the people who exhibit the most kindness are the first to get mistreated?" Well she couldn't have been more right in this case and in others of late. I have ceased trying to figure it out, it only gives them credibility. So no more.
So this Monday begins with more partings welded together in my life. People can be cruel, unforgiving, hurtful and judgmental, but I will never allow anyone to steal my joy or throw me off balance or off course. Or I will give it my best shot!
