#Reverb10: Let Go

Fifth in the series.
Let Go. What (or whom) did you let go of this year? Why?
There are people we need in our lives and those that we do not. As hard as we might struggle to keep certain people in, it is sometimes wisest to let them go.
Why? We need them. It truly does not get any easier than that. That sounds very utilitarian, but think about it: you don't invite random strangers into your home for no reason. Even if you are helping someone by doing them a favor, if nothing else for that moment, you "need" them. 
Yes. I realize this does not fit the standard notion of need. But for the most part, we keep those closest to us that are most meaningful and beneficial to us. Again, it sounds VERY self-serving, but relationships are two ways streets. Or at least, good ones are.
If you are on a one way street, you probably need to get off it- at least in terms of relationships.
