Before others can accept who you are, who you have become, you – yourself – truly have to let go… to set yourself free.
Let go of:
- · Your old self (or selves) and all the selves you could have been
- · Regrets
- · Anger/Resentment towards yourself and others
- · Any preconceptions you may have about who/how you think you should be
- · Any preconceptions you may have about who/how you think others should be
- · Assumptions about life, others, yourself
- · Expectations
- · Judgment’s: directed towards the self and others
- · Beliefs, thought systems, concepts, priorities, values and teachings that no longer serve you
- · Relationships that have become “forced” – that are one or both parties in the friendship (partnership, relationship…) are staying out of guilt or duty even though one or both have clearly gone their separate ways And so on…
We have said it before, for any renewal to take place, to enter your life, you have to make room for it. Moreover, nothing new will stick if you hold on to all of that shit/dead weight.
Letting go is hard. Sometimes it feels like you are losing a part of you in the process. Perhaps, but what good is that part to you? Did it make your soul and energy soar?
Yes, letting go feels like dying sometimes, but it is also a rebirth. It all depends how you look at it. Remember when you lean to ride a bike. How free you felt… and how terrified you were when you realized you were on your own. The jolt of fear probably made you fall right down. Be a kid again. Only you are the “bike”, and letting go yourself of what is slowing you down.
You as a human being are limitless, but the stuff you carry with you is what limits you and drags you down.
Often, letting go may best accomplished in small, daily increments. Start before you feel ready, but only release the final cord when you feel fully secure.
If you take baby steps, you tend to go much farther than those who wait to feel strong enough to make giant leaps. Slow and steady brings perspective.
In lightness and simplicity.
