"People come into your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime. When you know which one it is, you will know what to do for that person. When someone is in your life for a REASON, it is usually to meet a need you have expressed. They have come to assist you through a difficulty, to provide you with guidance and support, to aid you physically, emotionally or spiritually."
Sometimes you go along life thinking that the people that are part of your life are important, but sometimes you miss the mark. Sometimes you don't realize that you are keeping people that don't need to be there. And it's not until a really difficult time in your life that you consider whether they should be there at all. When this realization appears in your mind, you are left with a decision that is both hard, but right to do.
Sometimes you just have to let go.
Sometimes you can't let people hold you back, weigh you on, keep you from the kind of life you want to have.
Sometimes the only way to be fair both to yourself and to them, is to cut the ties and move on.
And when you do this, you'll realize that despite the pain that comes with making this decision, in the end, it was the right thing to do.
