You Have to Kick People out of Your Head as Forcefully as You’d Kick Someone out of Your House – Sophia Amoruso

As I’ve grown older, I’ve started to realize exactly how many relationships will come and go during a lifetime. There are people I’ve lost touch with. There are also people who I’ve had relationships with that have taken a turn for the worst – of course, everyone has experienced this.

If a person leaves or starts having a negative impact on your life, it can be easy to let our sad or angry thoughts about the situation simmer. Why are you no longer friends? Why did they treat you poorly? I’m as guilty as anyone of focusing way too much on these questions.

However, for every moment you give power and energy to these thoughts,  it’s a moment you lost focusing on your own life and happiness. Instead of thinking of ways to be productive or take care of yourself, you’ve instead been thinking about a situation you have no control over. This isn’t useful.

When a person is out of your life, it’s best to let them go – not only physically, but mentally. This is because you deserve to focus on creating a great future and being as content as possible, and you can do that when you kick the naysayers out of your mind and lock the door.

  1. Brilliant quote and post, April! Something we all need to be reminded of, as well as sometimes we need to be the ones to leave a hurtful/negative relationship in order to make a better life for ourselves.

  2. I’ve a saying in my head for such a situation where you feel angry with someone and it goes something along the line of:
    Love everyone kindly for sure, only you really don’t have to go camping with any of them.

  3. I think this is a great post, since we try to rationalize why some people walk out of our lives. Its done and that’s it! Forgiveness does wonders. It’s not even about letting others
    get away – it has more to do with you letting go of the anger or pain. It’s not worth the mental anguish to think of them.

  4. This very subject has been floating around in my head recently. So many past relationships that have floated away for one reason or another. I’ve considered rekindling some, but am at a point in life where I am tired of living in the past and want to enjoy today. Life is full of change – I’m accepting the change – and moving forward. I’ll think of those past relationships as pieces of the puzzle of my life. They will always be there to complete the whole picture, but they are only part of the background scene.

    • That’s a beautiful sentiment. And I agree, it can be tempting to rekindle old relationships, but you should make sure it’s not taking a step back in your life or reliving the past. Sometimes relationships are meant to fade away, and hopefully we can look back fondly. Thanks for your comment!
