Letting a Friend Go
Thinking about the friendship I lost, this quote came to mind. Maybe I didn’t really lose a friend because there wasn’t really one in the first place. Photo from the internet.
Recently, I went through a tough time. I felt so betrayed by a good friend that is why it was a really painful experience. I have known her since I was a kid. We were classmates since elementary. And because her accusations were unfounded and came at a time when I was also so helpless and vulnerable, the pain was double.
While nursing the hurt, my younger daughter Shane and I went with Papa and Shawna to her ballet practice. On the way home, Shawna watched videos on the iPad and she kept on playing a certain cover for the song “Let It Go” from the animated movie, Frozen. It was a very interesting cover that Dindin was so engrossed listening to it.
While in the car, I belted out to the song with matching hand gestures and facial expressions that the people outside could have sworn that they saw a lunatic in the yellow car. haha
Well, they couldn’t hear me sing nor the music playing, so they can think what they want to think. Besides, they don’t know me (or at least I hope). LOL I must have been amusing to watch. nyahahaI guess this is true. Photo from the internet.
But you know what? It was so apt. That was just the emotional release I needed–through a song. I badly needed it. I guess physically expressing my emotions was the therapy I needed for healing and peace. And true enough, I let it go, literally. Thank you to the writers of this song, this is one hell of a therapeutic piece. haha I bet many people can relate to this, despite having different circumstances than what I have.
If you haven’t heard this song, then I would really wonder where you came from. LOL Anyway, here is Let it Go from the Disney animated film, Frozen. Sang by Idina Menzel.
