The Single Woman’s Dash of Sass: Letting Go of Your “Mr. Big”
Quote of the Day:
“Sometimes you just KNOW it’s time to let go…so you do…and every day after is a little bit better than the day before.” ~The Single Woman
The Single Woman Says:
One of the primary stories I write about in my e-book, “The Single Woman’s Sassy Survival Guide: Letting Go & Moving On” is my relationship with my “Mr. Big,” the on-again, off-again love in my life who can’t ever QUITE decide which one he wants to be. And this is the story that so many of you have connected with the most. It seems all of you, no matter what continent you might live on, have your own version of “Mr. Big.”
Do you ever REALLY let go of a “Mr. Big”? Many of you have asked me.
Here’s what I know.
You hurt, you cry, you say goodbye…you move on, you grow strong, you remember how to fly.
And one day, you find yourself so far removed from what once WAS…you look back and realize that somewhere along the way, his memory LET GO OF YOU.
To love someone who can’t quite love you back is a powerful thing…but to love yourself MORE is an even more powerful thing. My Mr. Big hurt me, challenged me, refined me, disappointed me, strengthened me, infuriated me, motivated me, polished me, and inspired me. He taught me both how to let down my walls and be vulnerable and to set boundaries to protect my heart. He taught me to embrace my spontaneous side and follow my heart instead of my head, and to live for the moment a little bit more. More importantly, he taught me how to love myself too much to stay connected to someone who doesn’t love me enough.
There’s a quote by Ethel Person that says: “People should not judge failed love affairs as failed experiences but as part of the growth process. Something does not have to end well for it to have been one of the most valuable experiences of a lifetime.”
Yes, my relationship with my Mr. Big was, without a doubt, one of the most valuable experiences of my lifetime.
I was forever changed by the time I spent loving him.
But I was MORE changed by walking away from him.
