    I found this today online. If it speaks to you, there's a YouTube video out there.

    If it doesn't, please know I only mean good. I hesitate to post anything religious cause I don't want to offend yet I believe most of this is common sense.

    anyhow....hope this helps someone.

    There are people who can walk away from you.


    And hear me when I tell you this! When people can walk away from you: let them walk. I don't want you to try to talk another person into staying with you, loving you, calling you, caring about you, coming to see you, staying attached to you. I mean hang up the phone.


    When people can walk away from you let them walk. Your destiny is never tied to anybody that left.


    The Bible said that, they came out from us that it might be made manifest that they were not for us. For had they been of us, no doubt they would have continued with us. [1 John 2:19]


    People leave you because they are not joined to you. And if they are not joined to you, you can't make them stay. Let them go.


    And it doesn't mean that they are a bad person it just means that their part in the story is over. And you've got to know when people's part in your story is over so that you don't keep trying to raise the dead.


    You've got to know when it's dead.


    You've got to know when it's over. Let me tell you something. I've got the gift of good-bye. It's the tenth spiritual gift, I believe in good-bye. It's not that I'm hateful, it's that I'm faithful, and I know whatever God means for me to have He'll give it to me. And if it takes too much sweat I don't need it. Stop begging people to stay.

    Great message for those (like myself) struggling to "let go and let God".

    I really like the "If you keep trying to help someone who won't even try to help themselves......


    LET IT GO!!! " one because it is something we need to do in our lives. Our main issue since the summer of 2011 has been husband's brother Buck. Even now that he is out of the house he seems to creep back in to make problems. I guess I was supposed to get all upset when he was in the hospital but I honestly couldnt have cared less. I was like...hmmm, oh well...lol. My attitude wasnt met with much appreciation. I guess I was supposed to drop everything and help him. No way. It is his problem he has no close family besides his sibling who want nothing to do with him...except my husband. He could have been a nicer and better person and married and had kids to take care of him when he is old and sick. My theory is if I havent given birth to you, I dont have to let you take up space in my life.

    I like this a lot. I am very spiritual and believe that everything that happens to us was supposed to happen...for lessons learned while on earth. Very good post.
