The Art of Letting Go

Baby, you look happier, you do is a piece of Ed Sheeran’s song lyrics entitled Happier. This song is about a broken-hearted man who cannot get over his ex-partner. He admitted that he was happier when he was with her. Unfortunately, she was already in another’s arms at that moment. The man kept regretting, and in the end of the song, he said that he wanted to wait for his most beloved one.


What I like from this song is that it never bores me no matter how many times this song is repeated on my playlist. Why? The reason is not whether it is about the melody or the lyrics. Having been in that position once (twice this year) may become the excuse for my being sensitive to this song. Letting go of people who were once close to us is not an easy matter. Some people take us for granted without trying to appreciate the hard efforts that we have already given to them.  Thus, it is time for us to focus on our own lives and let go of people not being able to be thankful.


Letting go is not always about our being selfish. It is okay for us to shut some people out. Although being judged as a mean person by some people, we must prioritize ourselves and be a happier person. If we stayed and chose not to start going forward, we would regret the time having been spent thinking of the problem. “I could smile to hide the truth” is the first situation which we will face when we try to let go. However, trust me, the painful feeling, which we are feeling at the moment, is worth it in the future.
Dear my beloved readers, who are feeling betrayed, or broken-hearted
It may take several months to move on, or even years. The song Happier suit me well at that time. I was told by a friend of mine that there was someone else who could make him happier, and few days later, he told me that he wanted to stop fighting for me, and then, he went away. Not only did I need a long time to accept the fact of his having crush on someone else (she was someone whom I knew!), I also felt pathetic because I had to sincerely let him go when I was still deeply in love with him. Eventually, I made it (bunch of thanks to all people around me for the encouragement)! Reflecting on my life nowadays, I am grateful for experiencing that moment leading me to the downfall. Without being hurt and left behind, I would not be able to understand the art of letting go of things and people bringing no good impacts upon my life.
