Life is a balance of holding on and letting go.
I read that quote earlier in the week and I have had it on a sticky note on my computer screen every since as a reminder to myself that sometimes I do need to let go.
It is something I have had a hard time with my entire life. I have a hard time of letting go of things. Sometimes I even have a hard time holding on to things that I should. But the letting go is always the hardest.
I harbor things within myself that I should have let go of a long time ago. I hold on to past hurts, pain and hurt feelings like I am hording water for a trip across a hot, dusty desert.
And I realize that all I am doing by holding on to these things is hurting myself. I am making the wounds deeper and pouring salt on them.
I have been learning to let go more and more over the years with the right amount of therapy and deep reflection.
I have finally realized that In letting go I am finally letting myself heal.
