We hold on to things and people because we’re afraid to be alone, to go without- or to be seen as a failure and fraud. We hold on because it feels so good even when we’re in pain. We’re closet masochists. We don’t realize that if it’s meant for us then it will always be there. If it was meant for you to have then you will have it- and there will be no pain or drama associated with it- and there will be no doubt. If what you have or want is meant for you then it will be made clear without having to read between the lines, jump through hoops, or ride on any emotional roller coasters.
But when the signs are clear that we must let go and walk away- we must comply or face greater heartache. It truly is that simple- we just choose not to see and believe it. What is- simply is and what will be, will be! The goal is to learn our lessons quickly so that we can continue on our great journey, and experience what life has to offer. When we linger, when we fear change and fear letting go we become enslaved to a life of darkness, chaos, and pain. We also prevent something better and greater from entering our lives. True freedom is letting go. What’s yours is yours and no one can take that from you. You have the key to your shackles. Free yourself!
