Attachments to false beliefs can be more destructive than attachments to material items, because they are much harder to let go of. – Don Miguel Ruiz jr.
We all know what it is to let go. It can be painful; we all have experienced the loss of a friend, or boyfriend, or marriage or even a house. It is a part of life, so many times we get attached to an outcome of how things should be or should not be. So many times we are forced to let go, but we learn to cope with it because we have no other choice. It is like we are forced to let go of our old self. It can be a health issue, drug abuse, abusive relationship or any kind of relationship; that when gone, we do not know who we are. We feel like we are lost. We have to learn how to deal with the health issue that we are facing, or live without a specific person, or a job, or without the home we loved so much. So many changes happen on our lives that we learn the art of letting go.
One of the toughest lessons is to decide if it’s time to let go. Letting go is hard, but so many times holding on is harder. If we are serious about changing our lives, we have to be serious about changing our surroundings. I am a fun of journaling, because it works, especially when we are confused or not sure of what to do next. Writing down our feelings, our emotions, brings a great relief and so many times we find the answers to our questions.
If you are in a space of uncertainty, write down your doubts, your emotions, and your hopes. Do it with an open heart and with an open mind. During this process or after you are done, you will know what is best for you. Trust yourself and act on it without a doubt, simply because YOU DESERVE THE BEST.
