Reverb10: Gone

December 5 – Let Go.

What (or whom) did you let go of this year? Why?

(Author: Alice Bradley)

This year, I let go of a relationship that had lasted almost ten years.  With it, I let go of dreams and plans for a shared future.  I let go of my ideals of parenthood (which never included single motherhood), of family, and of what I needed to raise a child.I let go of perfectionism, and started asking for help.

I let go of shyness, and started reaching out.

I let go of many, many fears about doing things alone.

And so far, things have gotten much, much better.
