At times we don't know when to let go. We hold on so tight as if that thing or person is the only love we have. Right now I ponder on some things wondering if I should keep them or leave them alone. Letting go can be a hard decision depending on who it is and why we do it. Sometimes we let go of things and people that were worth fighting for and keep the bad that was not. Then sometimes we let the other person let us go and don't fight to stay. How do we know when it's the right time to let go? At times I think it's a gut feeling that won't leave you alone but you ignore the feeling. There are a million love songs telling you to give it up turn it lose but you hold on to them anyway. I guess you don't let go until that person or thing hurts you so much that you feel their not necessary to keep.
I just recently started using Facebook. At times I was hesitant to use it because I knew it would remind me of my past. Looking at my present I feel so far from where I began. Finding old friends bring you back to memories, silly moments, and old loves lost. In the sea of many faces on this online social gathering I see old classmates in the present all grown up, older relatives that seemed so much older than me now feel the same age, cousins younger than me in college experiencing life, my favorite cousins moving up in the world, and me feeling okay with my past present and future. Reconnecting with family and friends but never forgetting where I'm trying to go.
