All the art of living lies in a fine mingling of letting go and holding on. - Havelock Ellis
I have read this quote from the book I borrowed from my mother. I was alone in my room and preparing for sleep when I decided to write things down because I was moved by the message of this quote. I just suffered a break up and it was really difficult to move on. I spent almost the whole night reminiscing, thinking why he left me for another girl. the experience was painful and it seems that forgiveness is not on my vocabulary as of the moment.
However, I realized that there is more to life than crying over spilled milk. Thinking about what if's are lousy attempt to regain things back. Life is beautiful and I just have to accept such fate as part of its quizzical games. Sometimes, I hate myself for being a romantic, it makes things worse. But I want to be happy, and that is by letting him go and holding on of what remains in me.
I love myself!
