“Some of us think holding on makes us strong, but sometimes it is letting go.” Herman Hesse
What is it about change that's so scary? Whenever I feel a need for change.....a need to move on.....a need to let go.....I fight and struggle to hold on...afraid of the change....afraid of letting go of what I know....especially if what I know has been something good. And even when it hasn't been......at least it's familiar.
Lately.....I've been feeling a pull to move forward....away from the famliar.....and what's been comfortable. I don't want to give up the things where I once found security and support. But those things are beginning to hurt me more than help me. And to stay means giving up parts of who I am....and the things I need to live free.
Letting go feels like a huge loss.... a sort of death. To let go or hold on?
Change is never easy, you fight to hold on, and you fight to let go.” – The Wonder Years
