By letting it go it all gets done. The world is won by those who let it go. But when you try and try, the world is beyond the winning.
— Lao Tzu
Today’s prompt is another tough one:
What (or whom) did you let go of this year? Why? (Author: Alice Bradley)
The first thing that came to my mind this morning when I read this prompt was a person I’ve recently cut out of my virtual social circle. I expect she hasn’t noticed, and if she has, I assume she doesn’t care, which is the reason I decided to cut ties to begin with. I don’t know what I did, but she stopped responding to any kind of contact from me some time ago, and I’ve spent way more time than I should have trying to figure out why. The bottom line is, the relationship was one-sided, except when it suited her, and that isn’t ok with me.
