I just couldn’t let go of the fact that the heels on my shoes would never wear uniformly because I had a difference in leg length. I would constantly hone in on it. It became my biggest bug bear.
Why is it that we still can’t seem to let it go?
We hold on as if our lives depended on it. I know that if I had understood why, I probably would have let go sooner, but many years later in my twenties, long before I found out that I had Cerebral Palsy. I stopped beating myself up about it, because it was making me miserable. I must have unconsciously known it could never change. When our unconscious finally let’s go that’s when we let go. It was at that point that I began to let go in other areas of my life too.
I believe that when we continue to wish for things we can’t change, we will always miss out on new experiences because we’re dwelling on those things, not to mention living with those frustrations and others having to live with us. When we struggle other people will know of our struggles. Our struggles aren’t something we can easily hide or keep to ourselves. We must always let go of any circumstances that aren’t possible to change.
Not to, will either begin to interfere with our health or will continue to make us even more miserable and frustrated.
