You know that feeling when it’s time to let go and move on but you just don’t want to? When instead of letting go you keep holding on to the past?
There comes a time when you realize that nothing is like it used to be and even though you know deep inside that things will never be the same again…instead of moving on, you hold on to those things like crazy.
You don’t want things to change. It scares you because you’re not used to the new situation, maybe you don’t like it and… it feels safe where you are.
But here’s the thing… some things will never be the same no matter how hard you try and how much you hope and wish for them to stay the same or, go back to the way they used to be.
It’s not your fault, it’s just life. And it’s OK. That’s how things work. They change, they evolve. Even you and your body change all the time. If you can change something, do it. If not, just let it go. Learn the lesson and move on.
Time goes by, things change, people change, life moves on and there is nothing you can do about it. You need to understand that there are things you can’t control in life. You need to detach emotionally from all those things that hold you back. Let go and move on.
Stop living in the past and waste so much time thinking ” what if…”. If everything around you moved on why are you still there?
Holding on to things that don’t exist anymore it’s not the way to live.
Understand that the past can’t be changed, learn from it and find the strength to move on!
Life can be really amazing if only we could just try to see things a little different! Letting go and moving on can be the best thing for you. Don’t shut the door.
Embrace the new! Just be open to new opportunities, take a chance…it might be nothing, it might be something or it might be the ride of your life!
It’s not easy but time flies! What are you going to do about it? Sit in a corner, stuck in the past and all alone wishing and hoping while life goes by? Or move on to the life you deserve to live?
It’s all up to you!
You can’t control everything in your life but you can choose the way you react to each situation! And each choice you make shapes your life.
Learn from your past! Be thankful for everything in your life. Cherish the wonderful memories, forgive if you need to and move on.
So true! Sometimes it’s so hard to let go, but you just have to
Yes it is ! But sometimes it’s the best thing you can do 🙂
This was one tough lesson that I had to learn when I moved out of my last job. I am much happier now
I’m glad to hear that you are happier now 🙂 Wish you all the best !
Yeah. I met my cousins and aunt and uncle yesterday. They think I look younger. They also like the longer hair that i have!
man I really need to send this to a friend of mine, but I think she will get angry lol.
Or maybe she will thank you 🙂 If you think it can help someone feel free to share it.
As someone who’s attended more than her share of NA meetings I can attest to every bit of advice in this post! Everything changes…circumstances/people/emotions. The best way I know to be miserable is by ruminating on what was or might have been. My life really changed for the better when I focused on the here and now and dropped “i wish” from my thinking.
Although I don’t comment here often, I DO read and enjoy everything you write. 🙂
Unfortunately some people are so afraid of change, of what may happen, of being happy and they cling to that bad mood because it’s what they know and somehow it feels ok there. The funny part is that when they actually decide to make a change and see that it’s not that bad…one question comes to mind “why haven’t I done this sooner?”
Glad to hear that you are better and happier now. Turning the negative into positive it’s challenging 🙂
Have a lovely day 🙂
Reading The Power of Now has directed my inner light to things I’ve clung to and those which are ready to be discarded for the Present. So, finding your post this morning is a sweet reminder in a new day – a new moment – to live presently and bravely go into the Changes. Thank you for the reminder. 🙂
Happy to hear this Emily 🙂 Sorry for the late reply I was on a little vacation 🙂
