Why do often we attach importance to the things that hurt us the most? I used to do this constantly as a child, until I was in my mid thirties, primarily because I had no idea how to let go.
I’m not sure how many of us understand this is exactly what we do. I knew I struggled with things, I knew I held on to those things, but what I didn’t know was that I was constantly attaching too much importance to those things. In some respects, those things became bigger than I was.
What I know is that if we continue to attach importance to any issue we deal with that issue will always be a struggle. Attaching an importance to something, is like an invisible thread that controls our every thought.
When we begin to understand, deal with and come to terms with something, that something no longer stays important and that’s when we will eventually let it go.
But letting go ultimately gives us more peace.
