Decluttering my heart

I've done something tonight that I didn't think I'd be able to do. I've let go of that man I broke up with at the end of April. I deleted all of our text messages. All of our emails. And I unfriended him on Facebook. I didn't want to, but I had to. If I want to be able to move on, I really have to let go. Let go of all of it.

Minimalism is a way of life. It's not about just owning less things. In the words of the Minimalists, "Minimalism is a lifestyle that helps people question what things add value to their lives. By clearing the clutter from life’s path, we can all make room for the most important aspects of life: health, relationships, passion, growth, and contribution."

While I was in the relationship with this man, the relationship truly did add value to my life. But now that it's over, hanging on to it doesn't.

Maybe some day I'll be able to be his friend.


(A little secret... I wrote this blog post before actually going through with unfriending him. I needed to convince myself. So let it be written, so let it be done!)
