Fear of letting go
I drove past a prison a few weeks ago, and it got me thinking about metaphorical prisons relating to the heart and to love.
When it comes to the end of a relationship, be that romantic or plutonic, Fear of letting go can become a prison of sorts. Even when the burden of proof confirms that the relationship is over and/or needs to end, our fear of losing that person-the space they filled, the energy they infused us with, the joy they brought once upon a time-can keep us locked in a metaphorical prison.
Loss is a deep emotion that can leave you feeling bewildered indefinitely if you let it. And there is nothing empowering or loving about that.
Letting go is a process
Surrender to the process and 5 stages of loss:-
Grieve the loss as long as is healthy.
In my experience, these stages can repeat several times before I truly accept.
But when that attachment begins to feel like an obsession, or emotional crutch, or ultimately disempowering, then help yourself by staging a prison break.
Thought of the Day
Conditioned fear fears freedom. Love embraces freedom.
So, friends, lobby4love and break out of your prison of conditioned fear.
