We Don't Know What We've Been Missing Until It Arrives

It's true that we don't know what we've got until we lose it, but it's also true that we don't know what we've been missing until it arrives.

Sometimes we try to hold on to relationships that just aren't meant to last in our lives because we don't want to feel like we are going to lose out on the investment of our time, and the investment of all of the love that we gave to someone that we thought in our minds we would have around for a lifetime. 
Sometimes we have to be willing to let go of the relationships that do us much more harm than good. Too many times we work so hard in life to only be discouraged and told by others that we should be grateful for even having them in our own lives. I would much rather be alone than deal with someone who makes me feel unloved.

What we feel isn't based on what we actually go through, it is based on what we represent in our heads when we think about what we are going through. Our interpretation to each situation means everything. At the end of the day, if we keep receiving negative signals from the people that we are in a relationship with, we shouldn't just avoid these feelings, we have to know that a change is needed.

Deal with the change that is needed. Don't pretend that your relationship is working out when it isn't, if it isn't going great, don't sacrifice your dignity.
As we grow and mature in life, we come to realize that there is a point in our lives that we have to be willing to simply let some people go. Not everyone is in your life for your benefit. Sometimes people only seek to control you, and will use any type of manipulation in an effort to do so. Some will try and judge you and condemn you, and some are only in to reap some sort of benefit from your life when you do start to accomplish great things.

 Instead of holding on to something that is only deteriorating your heart and mind, it might just be time to move on. Not because there something better out there for you than what you are experiencing in the moment, but also because you deserve to grow, and you deserve to live your life in a campaign for positive growth, in a positive environment.

Don't hold on to something that has already passed away, gather up the strength to let go and just move on.
