Refusing to let go of something negative - a feeling, a memory, a comment made - can cause grief. Often bitterness. Nearly always resentment.
Who are you hurting?
Who is gaining from it?
Does it solve it for you?
Do you learn anything while stuck in the refusal of letting go?
Do you move forward?
Does it make you happy?
What about potential…?
The potential of letting go?
The opportunities that letting go offer?
The possibilities that come with letting go?
When stuck in resentment, ask yourself:
Who will you hurt?
Who will gain?
Will it allow you to move forward?
Will it make you happier?
What's the story you’re telling yourself, and is it helpful or hindering?
Remember though, with whatever you read online, take what you like and leave the rest because it's your life and, therefore, your choice of how to live it.
After all, this is the Manual of YOU!
Until next time, take care, stay safe - and sane - make kind choices and stay flawsome! Don’t forget, you’re fucking brilliant!
