How can we let go?
2. Let go of any shame or guilt you may be feeling or blame you have placed on others: Shame & blame often come up when we are working through letting go. Often there is a sense of having not been the person you wanted you or others to be, or shoulda been or coulda been. There’s a tremendous heaviness of not having showed up, been good enough or caring enough that weighs heavily. Instead, know that you are did your best, with what you knew at that time, just as did they. Before turning against yourself or others, let those feelings go with compassion & love for everyone involved.
3. Envision the new experiences that await: The positives that come with letting go are in creating space, literally & figuratively, for what is yet to come. By letting go you are giving yourself the opportunity to bring in the new, the exciting, the helpful & the loving. It may be hard to say goodbye to some things but knowing that what is yet to come will be more than you could’ve ever imagined & nourishing to you & your life, & to the life of others. Be hopeful, excited & open to what is coming your way.
If you find that you or a loved one are having difficulty letting go of the things in your life, remember that it’s OK to give yourselves permission to stop, be gentle, let go of shame & guilt & look forward to what is yet to come. Acknowledge that it is a challenging experience & know that once you take the first step, then another & then another, you will find that you are moving forward & getting through it together.
