Sometimes we have to let go of something in order to move on with our lives. Holding onto people or expectations can hold us back. When we don’t allow ourselves to change and evolve we can get stuck in old and unhealthy patterns.
I am learning that making those changes does not have to be harsh or unkind, just honest. I know in my heart when something needs to be released. I have to care enough about myself to let that happen. I am a classic enabler – needing to be needed was more important than taking care of me. Now I have to take care of my own needs and save the healthiest.
It can be very frightening to take that leap, but for me letting go of the fear feels like pure freedom.
