In the past few weeks I have received multiple emails from students and friends about trying to move on from a difficult situation. For me finally moving on appeared in my life when I stopped measuring my worth, my life, by what I was obsessed with. It felt like waking up, to see how much of my time was spent wanting to get something or win someone that wasn't meant for me. To look for other possibilities, to no longer care if I got what I wanted anymore. To overcome the numbness that comes with being fixated on something. To finally care about my own growth instead of wanting to grow to fit in somewhere or with someone. Because living is growing, learning... if I stopped doing that, I would be caged and half dead.
If you want to move on, try to push away the thoughts that make you feel less worthy and your life less desirable because you do not have what you think you need. Become YOU instead of looking to become someone for other people. Learn, move. As the saying goes, at the end of the day you only have yourself, so be someone you love.
