Learning to Let Go
In Roman times they would really go to town to punish someone. If you were guilty of murder they would tie the victim to you, and you would carry the corpse around until it rotted and you caught some disease and died. We don’t do that anymore. Yet we still choose to carry around the mistakes of our past. We need to learn to learn from our mistakes and then let them go.
Unprocessed emotions are usually the reason why we carry around baggage from the past. When we don’t learn what we should have learned from an event, then the emotion goes unprocessed until we do.
Seeing each event as a learning opportunity can assist you with letting go. Sometimes the learning is as simple as “I didn’t choose the other person’s behaviour.”
So learn and let go.
