Okay in letting go

I’m learning the hard way that it’s okay to let go. For the longest time I had this belief of not giving up under any circumstances. I applied this thinking in my professional and personal lives. I adopted the philosophy while playing video games (I’m looking at you Dark Souls.) I found the biggest example of my never-say-die attitude in my relationships with friends.

You’re hit.” Without batting an eye, Blain responds, “I ain’t got time to bleed.” That’s sort of what I’m feeling now. Last Fridays, my daughter, and her four children were kicked out of her home.
