Motivation: Letting Go


The truth only hurts if it disempowers you but in order to empower yourself you need to let go. Sometimes when I speak about my past some people think its because I’m still in pain. The truth is I reflect through speaking, so thats when I learn and grow, I understand my learning style. So I don’t speak about the past because I have animosity, I speak about the past because its reflects lessons of perserverance and grit when the odds were stacked against me and knowing I could do what I did empowers me to keep on pushing, progressing and growing.

Letting go usually involves forgiveness or acceptance, whether it’s you, someone else, a situation etc. Whatever you’re holding onto, is probably hurting or bothering you much more than it does anyone else.

The things we hold onto, grudges, anger, pain etc, tend to cloud our mind and prevent us from being the best we can be. Letting go doesn’t mean we condone a situation or behaviour, letting go is about lightening our load. By letting go of whatever is bothering us, we set ourselves free and get to reclaim that energy back for ourselves.

You can’t change the past, but you can learn from it and change how you feel going forwards. Whatever you find it hardest to let go of, is probably what you need to let go of the most!
