Narrative Entry #1: Letting Go
“You have to let people go. Everyone who’s in your life are meant to be in your journey, but not all of them are meant to stay till the end.” Not everyone is able to let go or move on. It’s an obstacle many of us face on a day to day basis. Having the past come back to complicate your daily routine isn’t a pleasant feeling or experience either. Living in a county where an insane amount of eyes are always watching you is an awkward feeling and can cause an individual to become paranoid. A very close friend of mine is in this kind of situation; lets say her name is Jess. Jess and I have known each other since the 7th grade and have been through an enormous amounts of experiences with each other. We were best friends and still are and I am thankful to have her in my life to turn to. The fun we have, the lengthy conversations with each other, the shoulders we provide for one another to lean on, the constant support for each other, and the late nights into early mornings just sitting up and being together means everything to me. The thought of knowing that when you wake up and know that the other person is there waiting for you or knowing that they’re the first and last person you think about throughout the day is an amazing feeling overall and a genuine friendship. However, complications make our friendship a little bit harder at times but also brings us closer at the same time. Trying to have her understand that her past is the past and it’s time to let go is her hardest obstacle. Her overcoming the worlds biggest loser and moving on will allow her to continue her journey and let happiness find her in the end.
