After some time I now reached a point where I know my only option is to let go.
Let go of the one I thought I'm meant to be with regardless of how much I still love him.
Let go of the hurt and anger.
Let go of the what ifs.
Let go of the should haves, would haves, and could haves.
Knowing and deciding to let go now though doesn't make things better. But it does make it bearable. It makes it easier to accept what is.
When I started my yoga practice a couple months back, I thought the reason I was so comfortable with backbends was because I've been so used to bending over backwards for others. Only after doing research did I find out that backbends were poses that open the heart. The action of stretching the front of my chest and opening my heart, almost as if I'm cracking open the front of my chest, makes me more receptive to emotions, experiences, relationships, and love.
In order to heal, I expose my heart and myself...and that takes courage. Overcoming my fears on the mat, gives me courage off the mat too. Backbends also release strong emotions: hurt, fear, insecurity, anger, sadness. And we all know I still feel all of these now and do need to let go of the negativity that come with all these emotions.
So now I'm letting go little by little, bit by bit, one breath at a time.
