The hardest thing to do for most people is to let go of what you know. Even if it is bad for you, when you know something or someone you feel secure in that you can handle this. The unknown, while it could be better, is scary.
The truth is that we are not here long enough to put our efforts and heart where it is not wanted. I wish that you would have the freeing experience that I did. It changes everything. Even tho my heart is bleeding for him now, I would choose him again. No regrets.
