When we let go, we must face the emotions that go along with it. It’s not always easy to give something, or someone, up. If this person, situation or object represented safety and security, it can be even harder to let go and move on. When we don’t allow ourselves to experience and process the uncomfortable emotions, such as grief, sadness and loss, they may revisit us later as anxiety or depression. Fear can masquerade as longing, regret or doubt. Processing fear, grief, sadness and loss takes courage and strength. It also takes patience, compassion and forgiveness. Think of it as a door that stays shut until the tears pry it open. There is no weakness in feeling through this density, in fact it will set us free.
When we let go we need to fully experience it, the good and the bad. We need to embrace the new sense of freedom, and cherish the memories of the past. We lived through this for a reason, acknowledge it, send gratitude and move forward fearlessly. You can do this, it is part of the journey. You are on the right path.
There is a silver lining here can you see it? Can you feel it? When you are done letting go, and space has been made for the new, something even better will enter your life, if you are willing to receive it.
The Universe has a gift for you, and it is on its way to you now.
