holding on to let go

It doesn’t matter who you are where you came from or where you’re going, we all enter the world the same and leave it the same. The only things that make us different are circumstances and choices, both of which come with only two options ultimately leading to a single result. When something in our lives isn’t right be it a relationship a situation our circumstances a person a feeling or a thought we have two choices hold on or let go? And either choice leads us to the same result which is to fight! If you choose to hold on you enter a constant battle to right the wrong and keep it right! And If you choose to let go you enter a battle with yourself constantly questioning your decision and your reasons for making it. So in reality we all enter the world with two choices and no option but to fight until we leave it.

    You and I would get along very well. I recently wrote a (fairly arcane) poem called "Stop Writing Poems" with this same message. I think your message is true, and you stated it objectively well. Kudos on a very non-poetic piece of inspirational writing.  -KMD
