Letting Go!

Letting go of relationships, friends who are no longer our friends, and behavioral patterns that no longer serve us often feels as though we are risking our safety and comfort.

Calculated risks taken for the benefit of our own well being are worth taking. This form of movement is safer than standing still.

Those who remain stationary become an easy target for misery of their own creation.

“We create and maintain problems because they give us a sense of identity. Perhaps this explains why we often hold onto our pain far beyond its ability to serve us.” ~ Eckhart Tolle
goodbye-vs-letting-goThe energy we expend by holding on often leaves us drained and with a feeling of hopelessness.

In other news: Sometimes we just have to let go of someone who matters to us not because we want to but because we have to. It should be the beginning of understanding that love leaves for a reason, but never leaves without a lesson.

It takes no strength to let go; only courage. Courage is a byproduct of a positive self-image.
