Change is never painful
Updated: Aug 16, 2019
Change is never painful. Only resistance to change is painful (Buddha). A thought for today! So why do we harbour feelings of anger, hurt, hostility and rejection? Why do we give all that we have in battling to hang on? Over the years, I too have clung to things and people that I couldn't bear to let go of. Regardless of how hard I battled they went anyway, leaving me to cling to the memories and relive the pain over and over. Hindsight is a wonderful thing and I can look back now and recognise that if I had let go of the things that I struggled to hang on to, my pain would have been far less. It can be so hard to let go, I know! But when someone or something leaves your life, you have to accept that they or it, is making way for something new to come into your life. We need to accept what life brings to us or takes away. Easier said than done I know! If you are in a place where the hurt, fear of the unknown, rejection or hostility is tearing you apart, just be still and let it be. It will happen regardless of your hurt or pain and no matter how hard you grip. Letting it go and accept that it is far better to be without something or someone, than to torture yourself with the pain and torment of hanging on.
