How Do You Let Go Even When You Want to Hold on?
It's always hard to let go of what feels "safe", even when deep down you know it's the right thing to do. Whether it's a relationship, people who just aren't good for you or a situation or job that just isn't going anywhere, it's hard to let go. We often tell ourselves, "this should be easier." Truth is, even though we tell ourselves that we deserve better or deserve more, it is difficult getting to the point where we believe we are worthy of more or that it's ok to leave. So how do you get past the self doubt, worry and guilt?
For starters, it's time to realize that you've outgrown that story you've been telling yourself for so long. The one that keeps you in the same pattern, the same relationships, the same job or same situation. You just aren't the same person you were 20 years ago, or even 10 years ago. We are constantly growing and with growth brings change. Step outside of your comfort zone, leave your safety net. Of course, it's so much easier to stay where it feels "safe" but staying in the "safe zone" doesn't allow for positive change or growth. Make a commitment to exploring outside of what is "safe" and enjoy the feeling of freedom that comes with discovering the you you've been searching for.
