Happy Friday. Have an excellent day and a wonderful peaceful weekend. Enjoy.
This Thought is dedicated to all of you who are needing to let things go. Just because you have a thought, doesn’t mean you have to accept it.
Always do your best…….learn to let stuff go. When bad things happen and you feel like you’ve been wronged. It is difficult to let those feelings go. Over and over our mind plays the video of those events and it hopes that the people who are responsible will somehow understand how hurt, angry, or frustrated we are. But they won’t, how can they know what you’re going through? If it mattered to them how those situations would make you feel, then they would have taken more care with their words, their tone, and their approach. They didn’t and now you find it difficult to move forward because you are holding on to the pain body. It’s as if they threw you hot coals and the only one they burned was you because you held on to them.
It is human nature to want to be understood; to want people to know and feel your angst and to feel sad when they don’t get it. They can’t know what you’re experiencing unless they have experienced it themselves or you take the time to explain and even then they may not get it. We see the world as we are in it and we all walk our own path and therefore we have our own unique perspective on life. Holding on to these experiences and replaying them means that you are re-offending yourself over and over. It means you are invested in hate not healing. So we must learn to let it go. Because we are held accountable for the energy we create and release in life, and when we hold on to painful experiences we are emitting a discordant energy. When the words of your offender are ringing in your head, find peace by letting them go. When you do not feed your feelings there can be no anger or sadness – only calm. Peace begins with you.
Iyanla Vanzant said “Why do we hold onto negativity? For some reason we believe that others are affected by our experience of remaining upset, hurt, or angry. They hurt us, and we want to hurt them back. We want them to experience our pain, so we hold on to it, believing that somehow they are suffering as well. Holding on to pain, anger, guilt, shame, or any other negative experience is the glue that binds us to the situation we want to escape. The longer we hold on, the deeper we hurt. In the meantime, each time we encounter a similar situation, the memory shifts from the unconscious to the conscious mind. We recreate the initial situation and respond not to the present experience but to the experience we had in the past. Holding on to negative experiences burdens the spirit.”
