“Some people believe holding on and hanging in there are signs of great strength. However, there are times when it takes much more strength to know when to let go and then do it.”
There are some things than must go down. They must DIE. Your negative stories about your self are those things. It is time to PULL THE PLUG on your Story!
Like…those shoulder pads or leg warmers or worn out socks. If you still have some in your drawer, let me be the first to tell you “Let them go already.”
So it is with our miserable old stories about ourselves.
We hold on to old beliefs like they were our last crumb of bread. When what we should do is toss them out like that molding container of “who knows what” in the back of the fridge.
Perhaps these ideas or stories were good ideas and served us well at some point (debatable…remember the Leisure Suit…polyester…really?) but we simply don’t need them anymore. Keeping them in your mental closet is bringing you down, man.
“But I’ve got plenty of space”, you say. Bull-Poop! You can’t afford to give your prime mental real estate to anything that is not serving your highest good!
Don’t think that I don’t know how hard it is to throw out old ideas. In fact, changing your mind can be one of the hardest things you will do. But it is worth the effort?
