Greetings, dear readers!
Quite a while since we’ve had a thoughtful post. Thinking helps clearing minds. Here’s to just one of those long chains of thoughts.
All of us seek peace. Calm. Serenity. Then what holds us back is actually us holding on to things. At the same time comes the lesson of learning from past mistakes. It is essential to strike a balance between letting go and holding on.
Too much letting go will land you in trouble. How?
1) Reflects in your personality as a careless and least responsible person.
2) You will never learn. Each time you tend to forgive yourself and move on.
3) People take you for granted. Obviously. You keep forgiving them and they keep using it to their advantage. Pretty much understood.
Now, too much holding on also has it’s effects. Most common that we know is stress, which is why people recommend meditation- to “let go”.
But here are other elements that involve holding on to small things that keep happening around us in everyday life.
1) You will forget more important things. Yes, there are things which you get really angry and frustrated at. But rethink. Is it actually very very impactful in your life. Also, will it’s existence affect you? If not, LEAVE IT.
2) Over a long period of time, it will make you a shrewd person, and you will apply the same attitude to your own self. What follows is self destruction, if not stopped.
In our society, we keep seeing people of holding on category very commonly. Thus the need to let go. Anything in a small amount is alright. Holding onto things is necessary too!!! Then how to ensure that you’re in a good balance between the two!?
Here’s to it. People. Aren’t they the one who land us in this circle in the first place! They are the solution too! Surround yourself with people who will remind you to hold on, or to let go. Often when stuck in a fix, we blur out the other option- be it simply giving or taking rash decisions in an attempt to hold on. At such times, turn to your reliable people. Tell them. If they’re the real well wishers, they’ll definitely point the other way too. The final decision is of course yours. The balance stays well maintained in this way!
What do you think is the best way out? Let me know!!
