This Is Me Letting You Go
About this deal
I did reaaaally like this book. It was full of beauty, romance, true feelings, and The Truth of heartbroken people. It doesn't share a too complex method -- just words that let you feel like there's someone talking to you and tell you things that you couldn't see clearly while the break up still clouding most of your vision. Terlebih lagi tulisan Priebe juga seolah mewakili pikiran dan perasaan kita yang sedang dalam situasi yang sama. Mengena. Misalnya,
This is me knowing that I have to let you go. That no matter how much I love you or how hard we work at this or how badly we both want each other to be happy, we are never going to be the right partners for each other. This is my acceptance that the best things are never straightforward and that I want you to take whatever crooked, twisted path you need to take if it will lead you towards your dreams. This is me knowing that I have to do what’s right. That sometimes the best thing you can do for someone you love is to let them go – to do more, feel more, be more than the person they ever could ever have become by your side.” We have to start appreciating all that we bring to our own lives. Because the ironic truth is, you are most attractive when you’re not worried about who you’re attracting. When you’re living your life confidently, freely and without restraint, you emit the kind of energy that it just isn’t possible to fake. The kind of energy that’s capable of transforming not just” Maybe anyone worth knowing is worth knowing for only a short while. Maybe anyone worth loving is worth loving inconclusively.Melepaskan sesuatu bukanlah proses yang alami bagi kita. Di dunia yang mengajarkan kita untuk mempertahankan apa yang kita sukai dengan cara apa pun, ada hal yang tak dapat kita hindari yakni ada saatnya bagi kita untuk melepaskan lalu melanjutkan hidup, dan itu terus-menerus kita pelajari kembali dalam tiap episode kehidupan kita. Melalui bukunya This is Me Letting You Go, Heidi Priebe mengeksplorasi kenyataan pahit tentang apa artinya melepaskan orang-orang dan situasi yang paling kita cintai, yang sering terjadi bahkan sebelum kita siap. Diana Fitri, biasa dipanggil Dipi, adalah seorang ibu yang gemar berkebun, dan rutin berolahraga. Gaya hidup sehat dan bervibrasi positif adalah dua hal yang selalu ia upayakan dalam keseharian. Sambil mengasuh putra satu-satunya, ia juga tetap produktif dan berusaha berkembang secara kognitif, sosial, mental dan spiritual. Dengan membaca tulisan-tulisan Priebe kita juga merasa dimengerti dan diyakinkan bahwa semua akan terlalui pada akhirnya, dan semua akan baik-baik saja. Misalnya,
what we forget when we say the timing's wrong," which is about how amazing it is that out of all the years of life on this ancient planet, we managed to occupy the same time and space as the people we love. with this perspective, there is no valid hemming and hawing about timing. if we want to make things work in the time that we have, we are capable of doing so. it's all about how much we actually want it.But there are too many galaxies out there. There are too many fractures, too many splinters, too many moments where the roads diverged and the manifestations of our choices split into ten thousand alternate lives. There are enough what-ifs out there for me to get lost in forever, and I don’t want to spend my time chasing our cosmos anymore.
Because the thing about loving you is that I’d have waded through an infinite number of Universes trying to find the one that’s right for us. The one that would have suited us, strengthened us, let us be the partners we needed to be for each other. Kadang isinya menyampaikan hal-hal yang menyakitkan. Tapi kita tahu itu semua adalah kebenaran dan kenyataan yang ada. Misalnya,In a world full of dishonest people, you choose not to become one of them, even if that makes you lose a foolish game or two.” We have to be patient with ourselves as we move through the parts in between the where we've been and where we're going. We have to let the chasm motivate rather than dishearten us. It's okay to not be there yet. It's okay to be unsure of every step that you take forward. We don't talk about how moving on sometimes feels like we're fighting every part of our most basic instincts, but we should. We should talk about how growth is often every bit as painful as it is beautiful.
