Someone suggested yesterday that I speak a little about holding on to anger, so here I am talking about holding on to pain and anger. I’m adding in pain, but this should include any type of negative emotion, behavior or thought.
Holding on to these things do us no good at all. They stew inside us and destroy our chances of peace and happiness. Negativity robs us of so many things and can hold us back from progressing forward.
So, you are holding on to anger from something that has happened to you, or you are holding on to pain from a past event or you have developed some sort of negative behavior, stemming from something that happened…. in the PAST. PAST being the keyword here. You cannot go back and change what has happened, you can’t rewind and replay and expect a different result. Why hold on to these thoughts or feelings? What good are they doing? Is the other party learning any lessons, are they suffering from what you continue to hold on to? NOPE! They are most likely oblivious to your own internal pain and self punishment while you suffer daily.
So why hold on?
It’s in the past… it happened. EVERYONE has had bad things happen to us… EVERYONE. You are not alone. LET IT GO! It does not serve you at all to continue holding on to the negativity. It hurts you and you alone… why allow a negative experience from the past to continue interrupting your present and infect your future?
LET IT GO… It will be the best gift you ever give yourself… that release will be your new found freedom.
