Convincing Myself to Let Go

November 14, 2012

The following is a dramatized conversation I had with myself recently in letting go of a relationship.

“You need to move on. This has gone on long enough.”

“I can cope!”

“The negatives far outweigh the positives. Just let go.”

“But just look at the positives!”

“The cold and bitterness is getting to be too much.”

“I can tough it out. Things will warm up!”

“This is starting to affect you physically!”

“What? I feel fine!”

“Look. Your skin is drying up.”

“I’ll moisturize!”

“Nonsense. You don’t have the discipline.”

“How can I let go after having personal interaction on a daily basis for so long?”

“You can still have that. Just wait until the bitterness ends. Maybe you can have the weekends together?”


“Just keep things casual. No commitments for a while.”

“I… maybe I can do that.”


”… Yeah.”

“So, you’ll lose the sandals and start wearing shoes?”

”… I… Yes.”
