Release You

New song from Megan and Liz! If you haven’t listened to it yet, it’s safe to say you’re missing half of your life. Haha I kid. I’ve been busy lately, and I miss its first day of release. That doesn’t make me less of a Macer, does it? Anyway, I hope you guys take your time to listen and appreciate how talented the twins are. They’re one of those songwriters whose lyrics will make you feel like they’ve read what’s on your mind. Ready to relate with their new single?

*sings* I releasseeee you.

I really have this profound admiration to Megan and Liz. Aside from Taylor, I include them to my list of favorite songwriters. Why? Just listen to all their songs, and you’ll see how great they are. I posted this song not just because it’s new but also because I can somehow relate. I’m not saying that it’s the entirety of the song. Maybe just a few parts. I think they should have released the song earlier, but who am I to say that? Release You  fits my post Breathe AgainI’m sure you couldn’t agree more.

You used to make me laugh,

But now you make me sick.

This line gets me. Ever had someone who’s really close and you witness them change to somebody you can no longer recognize? You never saw it coming, and when it arrived, you felt like you just found yourself stark naked in front of a crowd. You were not expecting it would suck that much — that feeling of disappointment. Then you realized that the only person whom you have complete control over is yourself. You can’t expect people to stay the same just because that’s what you want. Still, it really sucks.

I waited patiently for you to come around

You were more than willing to give them a chance. Wanna know what’s worse than someone wasting that chance? It’s the fact that they didn’t even try. They accepted how horrible things are and act like it’s not worth everything that you’ve gone through. Now that leads to..

It’s all good yeah baby

It’s alright

I release you tonight

Letting go. That moment when you’re getting fed up with everything. It makes your stomach flip, thinking that you just have to stop wishing. People will always be people, and sometimes it isn’t always for the better. Let bygones be bygones.

Hey baby I-I know I’m good without you

Life goes on even if bad things constantly occur.

Until next time, reader! DFTBA! xx

Breathe Again

Day 30, May 30th, Thursday: React to this term: Letting Go

Letting go equates acceptance. You cannot say you’ve let go of something or someone if you yourself know that deep down in your heart, it isn’t over yet. You haven’t forgiven yourself for the things you think you did wrong, you haven’t forgiven other people for the hurt they caused you, or you haven’t forgiven the situation itself. The words letting go vary from one person to another. Each one of us has our own  hardships we suffer from, and it depends on ourselves how well we can quickly pass that stage. No matter how fast your mind wants to forget, letting go is not something that can be obtained overnight. It takes time, effort and the strong will to finally accept things as they are.

Why do we need to let go of things? It’s because it drags you down. Way, way down. You live each moment fully unaware how these bits of anger, fear, discouragement, anxiety, false hopes, and a lot more weigh you down. Aside from the fact that they make everything heavy, they block your vision from the things that can make you happy. Your time is wasted thinking of the same thing over and over again. What’s worse is you can’t do anything about it. You have to learn how to accept things. People will leave, circumstances change, and you have to expect the unexpected. Change is inevitable and acceptance is a choice many can’t afford to choose.

Letting go doesn’t mean you are weak . Sometimes it means that you are tough enough to embrace the changes life shows you. Just because you’ve finally let go doesn’t mean you no longer care about the things you once can’t get a day without thinking about. It just shows that you know by heart that you can’t have control over things. You know your limits and you’re more than willing to accept that.

You can’t live your life constantly looking back at the past. You can’t blame the present because of the things that happened in the past. Let go. Move on.

Pain will leave you, when you let go. ― Jeremy Aldana
