“Life is short. Play hard.” We’ve heard this before.
When you’re carrying around emotional baggage, it hurts!
Emotional baggage is all the pain, the hurts, the blame and shame, disappointments and frustrations you have accumulated over the period of your life.
- It hurts you more than the other person
- It stops you from playing the biggest game of your life!
- It keeps you stuck, unfulfilled and going round in circles… until you finally had enough and decide to make a fresh start, a new beginning.
But if you haven’t made peace with your past, nothing really changes. The faces and places may change but the `dramas’ stay the same. Sometimes they get even worse!
There’s a saying… “Holding onto anger is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die…
You can replace the word `anger’ with pain, hurts, fear, frustration, depression, stress and any other negative emotions.
Then there are the judgments! Judgments that people have made on you and those that you have made on other people. How would you like to live a life without judgments?
Just google `judgments’ (sometimes spelt with an e) and this is just one of the findings:
If this resonates with you, please stop drinking the fatal Kool-Aid and get help to release the pain from your past.
