let go by ErinBird let go by ErinBird
"One of the most courageous decisions you'll ever make is to finally let go of what is hurting your heart and your soul." - Brigitte Nicole 

It takes a huge amount of courage to do this. When something is hurting you (physically or mentally) it's best to try and let it go. For example, if you're with someone who hurts you, remove that person from your life because you deserve better than to be hurt by someone who should be doing the opposite. It could even be a form of self harm, it may take the pain away at that moment, but you are really just hurting yourself more, which is why stopping it takes a lot of courage because it is not something easily done. Be brave and make that decision as soon as possible.

hehe every time I read this quote I hear Elsa singing "let it go" in my head

What everyone fails to answer though, is how does one let go.
I removed the toxicity from my life, but the poison still haunts me.

For me, the 'fake it till you make it' method worked. Just to pretend like I didn't care about it anymore, pretend that it didn't hurt whenever I thought about it, acted like I was over it. Eventually, you start to believe it and in a way you just let go of it. When I first made this photo about a year ago I was really hurt and such, but over gradual process of faking like I didn't care about it, I now genuinely don't care about it at all. (I hope this made sense? ahaha)

I've opened DeviantArt for the first time in forever (first "let it go", and now this, lol) and this is exactly what I needed to hear. It takes courage to let go of what not only hurts me, but has prevented me from entering this website for so long, something that used to be a daily routine. You hit the nail on the head: it takes courage.

I love what you've said here!

Though I have to admit it took me a while to decipher the word heart as the "h" looks more like an "n" and the "r" looks really close to a "v"

other than those things I absolutely love this piece!  hope all's going well! :hug:

lol aww...glad you took it the way I wanted. 

usually I can read your lettering pretty good, it was just this instance that the handle on the "h" threw me off, and that threw me off the "r" as I was trying to make the "h" an "n" and trying to figure out what the word was lol

Easier said than done. I've been living with heartache for 5 years- it cut me pretty deeply. In shellnut I got too clingy to someone and they left me without a proper breakup. Left me for a hippie of all people. Even lied to me about loving me for a long time to try and keep from hurting me. But the truth got out and it only hurt me worse. She just dropped all contact with me. I've tried letting this pain go on many an occasion. But it always comes back to haunt me.

you should try to keep the drama out of your life, and  find a reason to be happy. Don't push people too hard, not everyone have the skills to handle it the way you want :)

But... it can be as difficult to really recognize if somebody hurts you, or if something done reminds you of some (old) pain you did not realize before...
So it depends, but on top it can be both at the same time.
difficult life, isn't it ;-)

I like the way you pointed out the steps upwards!
:heart: Well done!

ah it's very hard indeed, and especially if you're 'in love' with them, you psychologically see less of their flaws too so it's really difficult.. but yeah I know what you mean. And thank you :aww:
