It is an intrinsic part of human nature to become too attached to things or people. And so it can be very difficult to figure out as to how to let go from these attachments. Though secretly we might know that they are not good for us yet detachment is just too much to process.
Some people say that this a very addictive behaviour and this turn is the root of all our suffering. Believe you me, it may seem as a very strong statement, but it is TRUE!
But what I cannot figure out is that why is it so damn difficult to let go? Why is it so hard to give up a habit gone bad or an ex-lover? When we know that these very things, are filling our life with unhappiness and are not letting us move forward in life. Most of us suffer from a feeling of inner emptiness and in hope to try and fill it, we hold on to various attachments.
Some may eat or drink too much, another’s may cling to an unloving ex-partner while a some may even get addicted other ways to fill our inner emptiness. The only way we can let go is to take a good, hard look at the things and people that we are so attached to. And try and make a sense as to do they really fill that nagging sense of inner emptiness?
All we need to burst the fantasy bubble that we have built around our addictive clinging and then we need to make a hard decision to give it up. And stick to it for good. Another good way to let go is to pick and choose the memories you want to keep. And slowing letting go of people and things even from our memory.
You need to stop worrying, stop obsessing over the things we could have done differently to make them stay. And realizing that whatever happens, it happens for a reason and life can be just as good, just as beautiful, even without them in it.
