Is your heart heavy and your spirit burdened because there is something that you are holding on and you need to let go? Perhaps it is a person, a relationship, a dream, a mistake, a habit, a vice.
Often times we choose to cling and suffer because we believe that by holding on, we will eventually get what we want - our deepest, most ardent desire. Or, by holding on, we believe that we can avoid what we don’t want - loss, heartache, loneliness, fear. We resist letting go because we have tried and not succeeded in the past, and the cloak of shame, regret, and failure deceive us into believing that we are not strong enough or capable now. Sometimes we stubbornly refuse to let go because we are convinced that the time is not right. We mistakenly believe that when our circumstances change or it feels right, the process of letting go will be easier and without pain.
Has the time come? Are you ready to let go? If so, be gentle with yourself. Recognize that letting go is a painful process, and take comfort in knowing that with patience and compassion for yourself, you will heal.
