There are some things in our life we can change, some things we will never be able to change, but we will still need to understand when it’s time to let go.
We attach our hopes and happiness to things, circumstances and people without wanting to let go. We unconsciously ignore the signs and continue to attach our feelings and will become defined by those very things. All the things we do and have in our lives become familiar to us, they become the foundations, but perhaps it’s time to think about things in other ways.
Looking back on my own life, had I have understood the signs earlier, I would have changed my life a lot sooner. When we stop trying too hard, when we stop trying to grasp at the things we should be letting go of, we will have the freedom to let go of the things and the people that hold us back.
We must change the way we perceive and experience the very things we hold on to. I remember talking to my Counsellor before The CP Diary ever existed about my own issues, asking her questions that I hoped would bring me the most peace, but what I didn’t realise was that those questions didn’t help because the very answers I was looking to her for, had to come from me.
Something had to click. I had to understand, acknowledge and see the signs for myself. No one could give me the understanding. I had to work that understanding out for myself. I had to know when and what to hold on to and when it was time to let go.
No one can make us see or understand. The understanding must come from within us.
