There is a danger in feeling incomplete without someone or something. One of the painful sides of life has to be when you have to accept that certain people and things come and go, and you have to be okay with it. The people you have in your life are there for a reason, and it’s up to you to figure out what it is. Once they’ve fulfilled their purpose in your life, they’ll leave (or have to go).

If you keep holding onto those who have to leave, you spare no room for those meant to come into your life. All because you fear letting go. I’ve come to realize that when a person struggles or fears letting go, it is because they’ve made themselves believe they’re incomplete without that person/thing.

Loving yourself comes with knowing and believing that you are already enough and don’t need anyone, or anything, to make you whole. Those who come into your life are simply messengers sent to fulfill specific tasks in your life or to help you realize something about yourself/life.

It is painful to see those you’ve grown to love and share your life with slip away from you. Still, it’s such a great tragedy to hold onto people who have no more mission to fulfill in your life, all because of your need for others but yourself.

Work on reaching a point when you feel complete without any other person because that is precisely how you are and should feel. Never let yourself believe that you’re not enough.
