Letting go

Author: Unknown /

How hard is it to let go? What is it really that we are letting go of...our feelings, our emotions or an unseen cord that binds us to people or situations...

Losing a loved one is the hardest emotion to deal with...yet life around me seems to go on in the same humdrum manner....why is letting go so hard....why cant this feeling be gone with a blink of an eyelid? why?
