Letting Go

I’ve had to let go of someone that I was spending a lot of time with.  I care about this person but he seems to have given up on having a good life.  He complains a lot.  I thought I could handle it but I can’t.  I have my own negativity to deal with, without having to fight his off too.

I know that life can be hard…sometimes and for some people more than others BUT I think there ARE solutions.  I have to keep trying even if I hit stone walls from time to time and have to try something new.  My life is fueled by hope.  Without hope, I have nothing.  So I hope that I will keep hoping until the day I die.

I have a vision for my life.  It’s a little vague and I hope to get more specific with it as time goes on.  My vision is to work at a business that I love–or at least like.  My vision is to make enough money to live in a clean, safe, friendly neighborhood.  My vision includes having money to go out with friends sometimes, pursue hobbies and jump on a plane now and then to visit family or just get a change of scenery.

What is your vision?  Please share!

About Maureen, Living in a Van

I'm a free-sleeper living in a van in the prettiest part of the world. I do this partly due to financial circumstances and partly because I love a good adventure.

    If I were in your shoes, I would have done exactly as U’re doing !

    • Maureen, Living in a Van says:

      Thank you Lucy. It is hard to think of not being around him as he was a comfort to me.

      • Lucy says:

        Perhaps the ‘ shake up’ of your action will make him think in a more positive way toward himself, life is tough – to different degrees – to most of us, complaining & been negativistic doesn’t help, for the contrary…

        Good luck & positive thoughts to U & to him…

    I was having a conversation with my brother who told me that he keeps away from unhappy people. I thought that was very good advice. Life is too short and precious to spend it with people who moan and groan all the time. Either do something about the problem or don’t, but don’t talk about it to death.

    I really believe that if more people looked at how their own actions contributed to their circumstances, and made corrections, a lot of their misery would go away.

    Keep reaching for the stars, you will get there. Persistence is 90% of success.

      Thank you Lynn. I am hopeful that my friend will stop beating himself up, believe in himself and believe that he can have a good life.

    Sorry about your friend. I know that is a hard situation.
    Hope your vision comes true one day.
    In my vision, I live in a house on a river with land enough to raise and grow my own food. Saving for that now. Hope it can come true one day, too.c
