release control

Loosen the Grip

I want things to go my way. Obviously.

But they don’t always do.

You come out of nowhere and crush my dreams with one sentence.

And then I have a choice.

Do I fight, argue, and resist what IS? Do I add more pain to the already painful truth?

Or do I say “Fuck it,” accept it, roll with the punches and from that place of peace and acceptance move forward?

I think I’ll subscribe to the latter.

Will I complain a little? Yeah.

Will I say “Gee. I wish that wasn’t the fucking case.” Yeah.

And then I’m just gonna dust my damn self off and move the fuck on. I’m going to deal with it. Accept it. And be okay with the fact that I don’t control everything. But I do control me.

And I choose to release control because it just feels better when I don’t fight to keep something that is naturally moving away.

Gravity. Sometimes it brings us closer, and sometimes it brings us apart.

And I just flow with it.

Borrow

Nothing belongs to me. Which is why trying to hold on is stupid.

I can “claim” you in theory, but I really can’t claim you. I can’t even claim me. I’m just passing by.

I can say you’re my friend, but really that’s just a figure of speech because I can’t HAVE you. Everything will end. Everything will pass.

It’s stupid if I try to make you into MY possession.

This is MY boyfriend. This is MY girlfriend.
Even if they stay loyal for life eventually they’re going to die. What happens to YOUR boyfriend then? Gone.

Nothing is yours. Nothing is mine. So why live with this tight ass grip around everything?

Let things come and go in peace. Be in peace yourself. Stop trying to hold on to everything.

Your youth. Your hair. Your teeth. Your body. Your house. Your car. Your friends. Your country. Your fucking toaster oven.  It all fades, my friends.

This isn’t to be dark or depressing but merely to shed light on the facts. This is how it is as we know it (or as I know it at least, I can only speak for myself. Maybe you know some shit about time travel and bending reality or whatever that I still haven’t gotten the memo about).

Until then… learn to release the grip so you can have more fun without feeling threatened by change or loss.

Muah!
