I have trouble letting go

Wednesday, December 09, 2009

I do. I remember stuff and it echoes in my brain, whether I want it to or not. Sometimes I can't get rid of whatever it is - the thoughts, the habits, the pounds. I just have trouble letting go.

I have no advice for myself. I hold onto resentments I don't want, emotions I don't want, habits I don't want, and, definitely, pounds I don't want. I try to empty my mind, put the resentments or emotions in a bubble and watch it float away - and back they are, in my brain.

I need a "pensive" like Dumbledore, where I can literally pull the thought out of my brain and put it in the container, to be brought out later if and when I need it.

But right now, what someone did on Monday is still bugging me. And I can't shake it. I keep trying. I've talked it out, I've thought it out, but I can't get it out. I feel like Lady Macbeth - "out, damned thought, out I say." Only it won't go.

    I hate when that happens! A pensive would be great in real life.

    I keep trying. I think part of it is I feel guilty for not taking part and helping out in an event that someone thought I had agreed to - but I only found out Monday that I was expected to be there, I had not been told of it prior to that, and I have a conflict - so there's no way I can participate.

    I'm irritated that I wasn't told ahead of time, I feel like I'm letting the person/organization down, and I feel annoyed that they expected me to do this without being asked.

    Just frustrating.

    Have you tried visualizing pulling the thought out of your head and putting it in a jar somewhere? I've done that sometimes, and it helps a little. The best part is, it can stay there, because you'll probably never need that thought again.

    Hang in there. I feel the same way. There are days I am ready to pack it in and give up. All these negative thoughts in my head take away from the real goal.

    Continue to push away these negatives and eventually the positive points in your goal will take over.
