I find that this topic comes up a lot in my bodytalk sessions which is why I wanted to write about it today. I find that most of my clients, and myself, have a hard time letting go of the past. I think we all do. Here is what I tell them. Holding on to the past, forever keeps you where you are right now in life. It is a way for us to stop our growth, our progression. Whether because of fear or the unwillingness to let go of the past, of things said or done that have hurt us. Without truly letting go, we can never take that step forward to find new relationships, job promotions, or whatever it is we are striving for. It is holding on to the past that keeps us from reaching our goals. So next time you find yourself wanting something better in life that just doesn’t seem to come about, ask yourself, what am I holding on to?
