Holding on to relationship, the past or anything at all that brings you more sadness and pain than joy or happiness is a bad idea.
That being said sometimes it can be extremely difficult to let go and move forward however trust me once you do your life will become happier. It took me a long time to master the art of letting go and to be honest I still struggle to a degree with it.
When you realise that holding on is only bringing you suffering the only solution is to let go.
I personally find meditations help me a lot with making peace with the emotions around letting go as it can be overwhelming. Taking a step back and listening to a guided meditation helps me progress my thoughts and gain a clearer vision of my future.
Forgiveness is also a part of letting go, work on forgiving anyone who has ever done you wrong. Holding on to anger only hurts you. I heard a saying recently which really makes sense:-
“Holding onto resentment and anger is like taking poison yourself and expecting the other person to die”
Forgive yourself too for any mistakes or bad choices you may have made. Be kind to yourself, acknowledge that it’s ok to be human and not be perfect.
Free yourself from anything that causes you to feel unhappy, sad, hurt or any other negative emotion.
Life is far too short to spent it tied down to anything that doesn’t bring us happiness.
⭐️ Let go, Forgive, Be free, Be happy ⭐️
