Letting Go...This pretty much says everything there is to say about Letting Go. It's very good advice...You cannot move forward until you let go.
So what is it you need to let go of? Is it anger, resentment, jealousy? Is it friends, lovers, family members? Or is it a job, a commitment, a responsibility, an addiction, extra weight or simply a bad situation?
Whatever it may be, it is up to you to decide if it is serving you now, at this point in time. It may have served you well in the past, and no longer is doing the job. Hanging on to old habits is fear. Fear of change, fear of the unknown, fear of loneliness... you get the idea. It is not trusting yourself to handle life without whatever you are clinging to. You feel you deserve more and you are right.
"Some people are part of your history, not your destiny" Steve Maraboli
You are important, a very important part of the universal plan. You need to know that you being you is enough. You are enough. You don't need any props, you don't need to be smarter, prettier, or slimmer. Just as you are, is perfect. You are meant to be here, right now, living your life and being happy. Let go of all the baggage, it's heavy and will wear you down. Be free, live your life and let go of all that doesn't serve you.
"Some people believe that holding on and handing in there are signs of great strength. However, there are times when it takes much more than strength to know when to let go and then do it." Ann Landers
