There are three types of people you'll come across in your life; the people who stay, the people who leave, and the people who longer.
People who leave are pretty easy to distinguish. For the most, they leave your life and disappear completely. If you're not ready for that, you are the one trying to pull them back into your life. You are reaching out, trying to make contact but there really isn't a response. If you're still holding on to a ghost, let them go. People leave your life all the time. As you may not want it, it's time to move them into you're "gone" group.
Then we have the people who stay. Again, pretty easy for the most part to understand who they are. These people came into your life, and probably never left once. These are the people you can count on for anything. These people care about you and want the best for you. They will do anything they can to see you smile. If you go to them for something or just to talk, they're there. There's no doubt in your mind these people are in your life.
The other type, would be the lingerers. These people are usually hard to determine. They're in and out of your life constantly. Sometimes when you need them, they aren't there. When it's convenient for them, they'll be there for sure and usually with a motive. These people are probably using you for whatever reasons and don't seem to really care. Yet, you let them in every time because it's who you are.
I'm here to say, it's ok to let them go. As it's hard, the best thing may be to cut them off. Next time they come around looking for something, don't respond. If you're not good enough any other time, why should you be that one time? Don't be. No one likes people who linger. So change that.
People should either be IN or OUT of your life. There is no inbetween. You will find so much more peace in your life when you stop letting people confuse or use you.
