Something I've noticed recently is that I hold on to stuff way past their expiration date. And I'm not just talking about the milk from the freezer. I hang on to emotions and feelings way past when I should let them go.
I mean should I still be pissed at those kids from high school that moo'ed at me in the hallway?
I have to learn to let it go because it's taking up valuable space in my life. Do I really need to keep an emotional tally of all the times my family has supported me, and more importantly, the times they have not.
Why am I still hanging onto feelings that don't matter? Am I using it as fuel to propel me forward? No. It's just dragging me down into old patterns of feeling inadequate.
So yesterday my post was all about cleaning my room, well today I need to clean out my feelings drawer. I might try the whole get it out into a letter and burn it idea. But I have to get all the negative hurts out before they poison me and halt my success and happiness.
Do you have problems letting it go? Better yet, do you have good tips on how to let it go? Are you an emotional hoarder too?
