I have to let go of a person in my life that I care about but he is draining me. I know it will get better after a while, but I decided to cut him out of my life this friday so it is quite fresh and still hurts a bit.
I know people keep floating in and out of each others life, but that is what we have been doing for years and it always ends with me feeling really hurt so this time I want to really let go, and make room for other more compatible people that energize and encourage me rather than drain me.

Forgive and forget and just wait it out... unfortunately, that's all you can do. I just came out of a 7 year relationship and I am 24. Life will never be the same for me and, although it doesn't feel good right now, I know that it will only get better.

Oh, I've let go of some people already, (mostly ex-friends) because they turned out to be not the same people I've met before (meaning the initial encounters was just a goody-goody facade they wear. Then, as time goes by, they transform into some different personalities--maybe coz of too much familiarity already blah blah,).
But it was just gradual, no pressure and no confrontation. I just stopped corresponding with them--which is good. It's better than being stuck in a company you don't like

In addition, Steve's article: Letting Go With Love is excellent. I'm not sure how much it would apply to your situation, but I think comes from a great mindset that can be helpful to step into for a comforting perspective, imo

I don't know if it would help but I wrote a post about letting go in my new blog last week. You might want to give it a skim - Letting Go - How to Let it Go
I guess it takes time. In my experience it also depends on the proximity you have to the person you just broke up with. If you are seeing him every now and then, then it takes longer. If you don't bump into him for a long time or move away somewhere else like a new city then its easier. Its much harder if you break up with someone and then have to put up with seeing them with their new partner around town. Then you have to sum up all the power from your soul to let go. Its tough but it can be done.

What if you approached this as a "no big deal" issue. We hurt so much because we feel we loose something important and irreplaceable. And in a way it is so. But for the moment try to understand that in fact you did not loose anything and that there nothing irreplaceable.
Also, as harsh as it sounds, what if try to transform this into a success story? Start doing something you always wanted but did not have the time or energy. Is there anything you would really like to do now?
Hugs to you!
