It wasn't that easy to let go because the attachement was there. Throwing away and forgetting the good times together is not that simple because in a way the person has given me some kind of gift. A gift of love and friendship. I have learned from them. I have laughed and enjoyed many moments. So as with everything in life, it has to end.
So, what to do with something become stale and the person no longer there? Accept it.
Move on. Get used to the the fact that it's a part of life and become the very best you can be. Don't bad-mouth them instead be quiet and be grateful of that gift you once have. It will hurt and one may feel the absence but in the long run you'll get used to it, then something or someone will eventually come.
Another gift...Another reason to celebrate life.
