Because the topic of today is ‘letting go.’ And just to reiterate my point, we’re not talking about Frozen, so before you start singing the song that literally follows you everywhere, stop for a moment so it doesn’t get stuck in your head.
Too late, I know.
Anyways, I’ve been learning a lot about myself in the past little while. To be honest with you, most of it has been bad. Not bad in the way that I need to stop chasing stranger’s children with nerf guns bad, but more like ‘why the heck would you do this to yourself’ bad. The main issue I’ve been realizing, however, is my inability to let things go. As I’ve been discovering, I actually hold on to everything in my life, however insignificant a thing it may be, because I feel as though it brings me a safety and security I can’t get elsewhere in my otherwise chaotic life.
Boy was that wrong.
Holding onto things doesn’t mean security, it’s more like throwing yourself in your own prison and tossing away the key. It takes away from your peace, adds to your stress and misery, and until I learn to let these things go properly, I’m never going to find freedom within myself.
That being said, I find that this pertains to not only myself, but pretty much everyone else as well. So here I’ve written a bit of a list of the things I’m learning to let go of, in hopes that it may give you some good ideas as well.
