and how do you know when to let go?
if you give and never take, take a hint and let go. if your image is based on someone elses preference, let go. if you’re #1, but there’s a 2, 3 and 4, let go. if you believe happiness only comes from relaitonships, let go. if ‘i love you’ has become a salutation, let go. if your friends can’t bare to hear about it anymore it’s because they told you to let...
