We as humans are so afraid to look into ourselves. Living in an individualistic society we aim each day to please the desires of our flesh but are afraid to confront the depths of our soul. We try to ignore the things inside of us that are flawed and are in need of desperate attention. We try to cover up the truth with lies and despair. We make excuses for our actions and justify our mistakes. Soon enough we grow victim to ourselves falling short of our full potential. Then there comes a time when we just can’t take the lies anymore. The pain of our affliction becomes too much to bare. We then have to stand up and stare in the mirror and face ourselves. Face the truth. We have to strip ourselves of everything that covers us up from our truth. We have to scalpel out all of the toxic waste that we’ve allowed to accumulate over time, and excavate it from our souls. We have to stop thinking about personal pleasure and start thinking about self development. We have to weed out all of the things that trigger us to walk off course, & realign our soul to our inner light. We have to grow up and face our fears. We have to let go of the pass to allow good to come in our future. Don’t be afraid to let go of yourself in order to gain your true self. Don’t ever be afraid to face your biggest fears, they will be your biggest accomplishments.
Some days may appear more difficult than others, but the blessing in it is the beauty of your struggle.
Everyone goes through phases in their life where they are forced to let go. Rather it’s a relationship, addiction, or series of bad habits, everyone battles something to the point of no return. No one said it would be easy, many of us relapse everyday from something we know is no longer serving us. The question is how do we move on? How do we walk forward without looking back. Even I have suffered from issues of letting things go, such as people I’ve grown to love or attach to. Emotional connections are one of the hardest obstacles to move past from. I realize that letting go is definitely for the better. I’m happy and healthier this way no matter how much I try to cling on to the past. So I’ve come to the realization that my past is haunting me, it wants me to continue to feed off of its energy. I can no longer go back and forth with this evil. So what do I do to completely remove this baggage from my life? It’s causing me frustration, sadness, and a bundle of other emotions. I say the first step of letting go is being upfront with yourself. Physically confess to yourself your problem. Next map out how you can gain power to defeat this issue. Many people underestimate their ability of willpower, already hindering themselves from conquering their fears. Another step is realizing that letting go does not happen overnight. It is something that takes hard work and dedication to defeat. You have to stay committed and consistent with fighting your demon. Whenever your issue tries to attack you smite it down. Never give your issue satisfactory to creep back into your life, sometimes you may get blindsided and give in but once you realize that it isn’t right, get back up again and fight the fight until your demon realizes your are stronger, or at least gaining more strength. I speak in the term of using the “demon” because every obstacle we face in life starts inside, it is an internal influence of some sort. A demon is an entity that aims to destroy you, bring upon negativity energy. So you have to be aware when something does not have good intentions. It took me almost three years to realize that, but everyday I fight harder and harder to let go of things that do not have my best interest. We have to be brave enough to recognize that demon and start attacking it, no matter what form it comes in. Love conquers fear, so you have to love yourself enough to remove toxins from your life. Letting go is a process, each and everyday is a step closer to shedding your old self. Never said it would be easy but with enough confidence and drive you will be able to conquer every obstacle that wants to defeat you, but in this case you’ll be defeating your obstacles.
