9 thoughts on “Letting go of what could have been

  1. I can relate to so much of what you write Megan. It’s all a part of the process and if it helps, it does get easier. Not painless, never painless, but easier all the same. I went through exactly what you described in this piece, it’s like you were watching my life, it’s that similar. Moving house twice has enabled me to let go, piece by piece, very slowly and let all those memories go where they belong, not in my today. I <3 heart you for writing this and for walking this road with your head held high, even on days when it wants to hide and cry.

  2. The more pieces I got rid of, the better I felt. Lighter. The one thing I am stuck with is these stupid mix CDs. They have both great songs and terrible emotions attached. I don’t know how to deal with them.

  3. When my boyfriend of 12 years finally realized we were done he dropped off a totebox full of our stuff and our memories on my front porch. It took me almost a year before I could open the box and look thru things without crying about it. I guess its a type of mourning period. It does get easier but there is always something that happens that reminds me of him, or a song I hear or something I do we used to do together. But one thing I did learn was that I learned alot about myself and realized if I hadn’t gone down that road I wouldn’t be the person I am today. You are in my thoughts because I’ve been there done that. One day at a time my dear, one day at a time.
