Letting go

 

 

Sometimes it is very hard to let go of the past. To let go of that hurt which in reality is bringing one down. It is hard to take that brave step and saying I don’t need to carry this hurt as it is only empowering the person who has hurt me.

“Don’t let the darkness from your past

Block the light of joy in your present

What happened is done.

Stop giving time to things which no longer exist,

When there is so much joy to be found in the here and now.”

Karen Salmanshohn

 

It takes courage to let go but goodness it is so liberating. And I am now wondering how I could have been so stupid to carry it for such a long time.

Perhaps I may suggest that if like me you are carrying a hurt, write it on a large piece of paper expressing the hurt in words, in a picture,in any medium but express it. Perhaps you may need to name the person perhaps not. Then with a shredder or by hand, or perhaps burn the paper and with it let all your hurt and resentment burn or shred. It is a liberating experience.

Don’t let the darkness from your past

Block the light of joy in your present

Have courage and let it go.
