What do you do when distractions and False needs are controlling your life ?When they stopped feeling the same way they did about you and you know the emotions can’t be imposed upon anymore? Do you let it die a slow death or fight till you lose the war against yourself? The choice is the toughest of all. They’ve always said it’s easy to fall in love with a situation or a person or a thing, probably because it resolves your primal need to feel safe and in love or successful.
But even when you know it is slowly becoming a parasite and finishing you from within, you just can’t let go. It’s an unbearable pain to let go of a feeling or detach yourself from a very important factor in your life, it could be something as superficial as money or an opportunity with a Big buck Client or it could be about that somebody who never shared their future with you. The only thing more unthinkable than leaving was staying; the only thing more impossible than staying was leaving.”—Elizabeth Gilbert. If ever you reach this stage, this means you’ve done all in your potential to work things to reach your goals, that you feel all the efforts and time you invested in it doesn’t make sense anymore. At this point, you question yourself if you aren’t strong enough to fight your way up. You give more value to your condition you’ll be in, if you let go of that something, and obviously it hasn’t been a pretty sight, which brings about a potent feeling of fear. What is the point of a fear if you can’t overcome it? If you hold on to those toxic situations or people just because you’ve spent too much time in the misery and now you’re enjoying being in the place of dead, then you’re basically setting yourself up to lead miserable life. It is a Void, it doesn’t go anywhere, certainly won’t letting you go anywhere. There is a certain power in letting go. You feel a lot more peaceful and serene than holding on to something that gets your heart heavy every day. If you’re brave enough to say Goodbye, life will reward you with a new Hello. Endings are not bad, in some cases they’re bridging you to new conditions.
See things as it is, not how you want them to be. This is not our imaginary realm where things happen our way. In reality, things are accepted on face value. If someone else got what you’ve been praying for, then this blessing wasn’t written for you. If the opportunity just passed by you, it probably didn’t want you to hop on the train because something better is on its way. Forgive yourself to let go some parts of you that dim your light.
