Letting go. Unburdening yourself. Making space. Becoming unencumbered. Few would argue with the value of these behaviors, but how do we actually do it?
Often, we cling to what is familiar even when it is painful and burdensome. There are probably many reasons to explain why we do this, but I believe we hang on to thoughts and emotions that don’t serve us because there is a quality of feeling that we’re “in the right” about something or justified in our perspective. If you find yourself in this situation, I would invite you to ask yourself whether being right is better than being happy, and to loosen your attachment to your “rightness.”
