One of the hardest decision is learning to let go and knowing when to let go. There is not going to be a “perfect” moment. We all say it, trust me, I said this myself several times prior to walking away. We say, “I’m going to wait for ______________ and then I will go.” Truth is, there is no perfect moment. You just wait and wait till you get fed up one day. That’s when you walk away and when you do, you will know you have made the right decision.
September 2016, I made the decision to move to a bigger city. I knew it was time to leave. I knew I was no longer happy where I was. I could not see a future living where I was. I was done and it was time to go. I left all of the friends I had, the job that paid me very well, a home where I felt comfortable and the place where I spent seven years of my life. I ventured south with no job, an online business and the hope to succeed in my business. As I ventured out, I realized some paths you are meant to walk alone. No one may understand you. No one support you. Many will question you and call you crazy; however, as long as you know you are on the right path and you are going to make it no matter how hard things get. That’s how I felt. I knew I was going to struggle, shed frustration/happy/angry/sad tears and I was right. I did. I shed a lot of tears in 2017 but I would not allow anyone to see my tears. I did not want anyone to think I was weak so I would keep my tears and pain to myself.
Along my journey, I have learned several life lessons. In the next few blogs, I will share my life lessons, share my personal experience, and tell you how I overcame the obstacles I have faced. If you know anyone is dealing with something similar, you can share in hopes my story helps them become a better version of theirselves or walk away from people or situations who are not good for them.
