We all know that letting go of an ex is hard, especially if we were dumped or cheated on. It is human nature to resist change. Nobody likes it. However, as a result of this, we tend to cling on to what we think we want.
Now, whilst I would never discourage anyone not to fight for what they truly believe in, there comes a time when we must all be prepared to let go. If we are unwilling or unable to do this, then we will constantly be living in the past. This prevents us from looking to the future and taking full advantage of the opportunities that await us.
I encountered this quote by American author and mythologist, Joseph Campbell, which I wanted to share with you. I think this best sums up why it is important to let go of who or what we think is good for us and what we think we need in our lives.
