I have found that for the most part saying goodbye (to even the most unhealthy situations) can makes me feel sad, angry, or and evern ashamed – like I have failed in the most basic endeavor – yet another relationship, job, ect.
Yet I know for God’s Word has taught me so - holding on to these emotions keeps me anchored to the past.
There is nothing I can do to change what has already taken place.
My job is to fully engage with the present moment. I must take the next powerful step on this journey today. If I did not do it yesterday there is no point in promises to do it tomorrow.
I must remind myself that letting go is a step-by-step process.
It can be challenging, but trying to move forward while chained to the deadweight of the past is far more difficult.
Day 3 ALLOWING THE GRIEVING PROCESS TO FULFILL ITSELF
I must be patient with myself.
I won’t ignore my feelings, (or swallow the with all the wrong food & drink) .
I won’t allow myself to get hijacked by them either.
I will acknowledge the pain and then determine to do any grieving that I must so that I can move on.
