The Art of Letting Go: When Others Don't Match Your Effort

Have you ever been in a situation where you asked someone to do something for you, and they refused, giving you some lame excuse?

And after some time, do you see them doing the same thing for someone else?

Did that hurt you? Did you question your self-worth after that?

Well, what if I told you it was never your fault if they never realized the value of a diamond?

Okay, let me explain this with an example!

Imagine spending hours making a delicious homemade pizza for your best friend, only to have them reject it in exchange for a classy takeaway meal with their new friends. Yes, that hurts. But consider this: what matters are their choices and taste buds, not the pizza (or the effort). It's acceptable that various things appeal to different people.

Relationships are the same.

No matter how much you give, sometimes others won't value it equally. They may not feel the same connection because they are busy, have different priorities, or have other reasons. What was the most challenging part? You are not to blame! Just as your friend may prefer sushi to pizza, their emotional choices should not make you feel inadequate.

So, what can you do? And how can you make yourself better?

Let's explore that in today's blog post!

Master The Art Of Letting Go

Instead of getting trapped in unwanted circumstances, its time for you take your power back and be the person you have always wanted to be.

Because remember: 
You attract what you are! So be great if you want to attract great!

This quote does not say it is your fault if someone ditches you or hurts you; it means that only you are responsible for the life you experience. If you want love, peace, and happiness around you, you need to stop letting the doors of your heart open for just anyone and be firm in your boundaries.

Know that one has to earn your time, love, and respect, and if someone's behavior or action hurts you, here's what you can do to get out of that victim mode:

1. Acknowledge your feelings: It is okay to be sad. Accept that what and how you want things to be are different. Do whatever you want to do to acknowledge those feelings. Cry, talk to a friend, and do emotional eating. But put a time limit on your period of indulgence. This is a stopover, not a place to live permanently.

2. Surround yourself with loving people: Even if you don't have anyone who understands you or is on your bad terms, there is always someone on your contact list or social media. Recall all the fantastic people in your life who genuinely admire and respect your amazingness and effort. They are equivalent to your pineapple to your jalapeno and your mozzarella to your pepperoni. Embrace this beautiful human community that helps you feel like the unique, delectable pizza that you are.

3. Invest time in yourself: Put your energy into what makes you happy rather than where it's unnecessary. Take up a new hobby, finish a project you've been meaning to, or spend time with friends who make you feel good about yourself. You're an entire pizza place waiting to be discovered, not just a piece!

4. Redefine your self-worth: Don't allow the opinions of others to determine your value. Take a moment to acknowledge and enhance the unique flavors that set you apart. Accept your uniqueness, your flaws, and your strengths. You are the prize, and anybody would be lucky to have you!


Letting go isn't always easy. But where you are not valued, there is no point in staying there. People who are meant to view you will always think highly of you! And for that to happen, it's essential that you also think highly of yourself.
