Learning to Let Go

This year, I’m learning to let go of what is not for me.

It’s really painful to hang unto something that is not really working. Why hurting ourselves unnecessary when we can avoid it? Life on Earth is short.

Because I waaaant it.

You want it. Right. But at what cost?

A good question to ask ourselves is: does this job, relationship, project, gives me energy or deplet me?

Am I excited or motivated by the thought of this?

We always know when something feels off – we start by overthinking every little details, we stress it out, we lose sleep…

At the end, we are just tired, grumpy and unhappy – what a win!

Truth is, we cannot force a specific person to love and care for us, just like we can’t expect to enjoy completing a task we hate.

All we can do is taking some time off to reflect, and redirect ourselves on the right path.

So what motivate you? What do you need?

  1. That’s a good attitude to have. Holding onto things if you find them not working out isn’t healthy. From my own experiences holding onto a job I didn’t like just to people please didn’t work out. It benefits everyone just to move on, like you say life is too short, especially doing something that doesn’t make you happy.

    1. We all have specific strengths and weaknesses. When we start focusing on our strengths, we can only move in the right direction. It’s normal to enjoy what we are naturally good at 😉 We should focus on that when looking for a job as well 😉 Thanks for reading!

  2. Lorraine, this message speaks directly to me. Years ago, I will hang on to that gaslighting and relationship. But today, I have realized that I am worth more than that. I’m more than the energy it gave me. Sometimes I think about it and it’s hard forgetting and forgiving yourself. But I have learned that breaking away from this adventure is the best! ❤️

    1. Exactly! Let’s pursue what motivates us, and let go of the rest! Our energy is precious, and when directed in the right direction, it can truly make a positive change in the world 🙂 We should focus on that! ❤

  3. I let go of a relationship last year that sucked the life out of me – because I wanted it to work – but it wasn’t working. Just two very different people. I had lost myself because it had become toxic trying to make it work. When I finally let go, I was relieved just to have peace and get enough sleep. Now I’m back to working on my dreams and goals and I love it. Now, to let go of the job…

    Thank-you for the great post 🙂

    1. Thank you for sharing your story. Relationships will always be a bit messy but they shouldn’t be so draining that they start to keep us awake at night. I’m sure you did the right thing. Take care xx
