Release What You Are Carrying
“When the pain of staying becomes worse than the uncertainty of leaving, you will start to move on with your life.”
I’ve got a big message for you today. When you learn to release the things that aren’t right for you in your life, then you find mental space for what you need in your life. Some of you say “I’m sick and tired of being sick and tired,” but if you were really sick and tired of it, you would begin to make those changes in your life. I’m not trying to be rude, I'm just keeping it real with you.
What do I mean when I say release what you are carrying? Sometimes this is a feeling, or a lie, a fear or a truth. Sometimes it’s a relationship or a job, a tough choice or a mistake you’ve made. Whatever it is, you have the power in your life to live with it or release it.
I know that it is easier said than done to “release” something. Oftentimes it keeps coming back over and over and over. What I mean by releasing something is to make a conscious choice to no longer view it in a way that is holding you back. If you are in a job that you don’t like and you wake up every morning to a boss that you can’t stand and you are playing a role at a company that is no longer suiting your vision for your life then it can take over your entire mentality. If you find yourself in this position, sit down with yourself or a trusted loved one and have a conversation about if this is the right place for you to be. There’s no sense in continuing further down the road in a direction you don’t find meaning in. If you come to the conclusion that you need to look for other options then you no longer have to worry about this feeling you are having because you are actively doing something to change your life. Leverage your options and recognize that this is just a season in your life and you always have the power to change it.
If you are in a relationship that is overwhelming you and you find yourself feeling like you have your back against the wall. Sit down with yourself and come to the right decision. Not the easy decision, the one that will better your life. When the pain of staying becomes worse than the uncertainty of leaving, you will begin to move on with your life. That’s just facts.
What I need you to hear from this is that you have the power to change your life. You are largely in control. At the end of the day, it’s all on you. It’s your story and you are the author. Don’t carry what you don’t need to. Listen to the concerns that you have and sit down with yourself and take steps to change your reality.
It all starts with you.
